Practical Classics Restoration Show - NEC- 27-29 March 2020

Post by GTXTRA » Mon Dec 09, 2019 10:35 pm

Chuffed to confirm that we've been invited back to the Practical Classics Restoration Show at the NEC in March.

We had a great debut show in 2019 - it's a smaller version of the November 'NEC Classic' but with more of a 'restoration' twist.

Members will be getting an email with a discount code in the next couple of days - once we get advice re. how much stand space we're being allocated I'll have a think re. display vehicles.

As those of you who attend in 2019 we assembled three Mk1's for our first year - a rusty, rolling shell; an ok 81 gti and a mint Storm - on a 'Before, During, After' basis.

In the meantime - if you do have a project car that can be made available for display for three days plus a set up day feel free to drop me a line if you know my mobile or email press@sciroccoregister.co.uk

It really is a great little event AND it means we get to have a SPRING SOCIAL in Birmingham... and we know what that entails...

More details to follow

Happy to bring along JWC 56Y if you think she's a worthy GL Auto Mk2 original...

Attending anyway, so no problem.

Technically you could use both of mine - one as the before and (if finished) the other as after.

Announcement

It is with great sadness that Clarion Events has decided to postpone the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show with Discovery.

The event team have been continually monitoring the latest public health and government guidelines regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and acting in accordance with their advice.

The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is the most important factor and therefore the only action for all involved is to postpone.

We are working with the NEC to find suitable options to reschedule the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show with Discovery, please bear with us as we work to secure a new date line.

Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date. We will be in touch with all our visitors as soon as we have more information to share. We will keep you updated via our newsletters, website and social media channels.

We are truly sorry that we have had to make this extremely difficult decision and thank you all for your patience, understanding and support in this unprecedented situation.

Classic Car Auctions will be running their auction at the Warwickshire Event Centre. Please visit www.classiccarauctions.co.uk for further details, including how to view and bid.

More details are available on our FAQs page.

Thanks Jon - yes, all very sad and entirely predictable.

All exhibitors advised - cheers to Russ, Marshall, Hywel and Will/Thomas!
