London to host prestigious Classic Motor Show

In Short Cuts by Philip Shoulder

A brand new international classic car show showcasing some of the world’s most beautiful cars will be arriving in the capital next year.


The new show will form a key foundation of London Classic Car Week and be held at Alexandra Palace from 30 October to 1 November.

Some 300 motoring icons will be on display by world-renowned car collectors and dealers making this London’s premier venue for buying and selling the best classic cars.

Riding on the wave of classic car auctions, along with many other attractions, this show will cater for car enthusiasts, irrespective of how deep their pockets are. Perhaps most significantly though, the ‘Classic and Sports Car’ event is a unique chance to see such a large collection of rare classics in London.


This exciting upcoming motoring show is the brainchild of Haymarket Media Group’s Classic & Sports Car.

James Elliott, Classic & Sports Car’s Group Editor, said: “Whether it be cars for sale, restoration services, classic car media or events such as the Goodwood Revival and Silverstone Classic, Britain is the undisputed leader of the classic car world. We are incredibly proud of that fact and want to shout it from the rooftops, yet, shamefully, the nation’s capital has not hosted an event to reflect this amazing status since the 1990s.

“We are going to put that right with this exciting new show, which will reinstate London’s rightful place as the epicentre of the world-wide classic car industry. It will attract the biggest names from the global classic car scene and, of course, there is no more appropriate setting for these moving works of art than the equally historic and much-loved Ally Pally.”
