It’s that time of year again!
I’ve blogged about car shows before, and of course we visited Haynes Motor Museum recently, so it’s no secret that we’re car fans in this house (even me and I can’t drive!) This year, instead of individual posts, I thought I’d round everything up into one big post, sharing some pics from the fab shows we’ve attended this year! You can also find some photos on my highlights on Instagram, from the Marie Curie Country and Classics show this past weekend.
The first show of the year is always West Cornwall Motor Show, over in Wendron, we always call this the “starter show”. It’s always a great day out, taking place at Wendron cricket club. Free parking and just £3 each to get in, there is lots to see and do for all the family, with kids games and small rides, to craft stalls including freshly baked cakes and other treats, several food stands and of course the bar, which this year also had a beer and cider festival! There is also a dog show, and live entertainment throughout the day. Of course the star attraction is the cars, and there is definitely something for everyone!
The weather was a little disappointing for Wadebridge Wheels car show, our second of the year, which though warm, has in the past been known to be incredibly hot, it’s the biggest show we go to. There is so much to see, as well as entertainments, stalls, lots of food and drinks options, activities for the kids and more! Organised and managed every year by the Wadebridge Rotary Club, there are always loads of different cars to see, for every taste, and this show is only growing!
Our final show was the Marie Curie Country and Classics show, which moved from it’s regular location of Trewithen gardens, to Tregrehan gardens this year. £5 per person entry, with free parking, it was really different to the Trewithen show, with a little more walking, and of course a different layout considering the new location. Personally, though it meant travelling a little further, this may have been our favourite show this year, it was a perfect location, and though a smaller show, the different cars shown were wonderful, as well as food and drinks, craft stalls, and entertainment on the lawns of the beautiful Tregrehan gardens. It was a wonderful day, all in the name of charity, and we really enjoyed it.
We’re even thinking about attending a couple more shows this year, which will be good fun. It’s always interesting to see what’s around, and meet people who bring their cars from further afield. Not to mention getting to give a little to charity, and the community at these events, while enjoying the summer weather!
