Gloucester Goes Retro! 24th August 2019

A refreshing invite from a local authority - compared to certain car-hating organisations...

If any members local to Gloucester this could be a great day out.

Dear Sir / Madam
Please find attached an invitation to you and your members to a special Festival we are hosting in the City of Gloucester on 24th August 2019.

The Classic and Retro Festival is a unique event celebrating living history and particularly transport throughout the ages. For this event we shut down our inner City and bring in Classic and Historic vehicles representing as many different marques as possible.

We have four Historic Gate Streets and each is themed and represents different eras of time 1900-1949, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s to modern day times.

Each Street has re-enactors, businesses, shops, restaurants, and celebrities all playing their part with good food, fashion and with music and dancing providing extra entertainment, enjoyment and fun for all, whilst we also support our charities at the same time.

The cars may be driven right into the heart of the City and park free of charge for the event by authorised application. There are special prizes for the best cars in each Street and a completion also for those that dress for the occasion.

This is an Award winning event and we would be pleased if you have members who you feel would like to join us and could represent the various types and styles of your marque.

I look forward to hearing from you and wish you all compliments of the Season.




Kind regards
Colin
