Trewithen Country and Classic Car Show is an event organised and run by Marie Curie Cancer Care in Cornwall. This year it took place on July 29th.

This is our final “regular” car show event this year, as we gave Mt Edgcumbe a miss this year.

The Marie Curie team bringing an awesome show together this year!

The show; which takes place at Trewithen Gardens near Probus around the end of July every year; is a great family day out. Smaller than some of the other car show events here in Cornwall; Country and Classic is great fun; and a chance to see some cars we don’t see at any of the other shows. This is often a little more high-end an event, where you’ll spot a few more Aston Martin’s and classic Jaguars. As well as cars shown by their owners; such as this Aston, or the McLaren in the background; you can also see some dealers such as Jaguar Land Rover and Mercedes, on site.

This Morgan was one of my favourite cars at the show! I really like Morgans anyway, the handmade nature of the car is something so different, and of course the crafter in me loves it! I especially liked this uncommon blue colour.

This classic Porche 930T was beautiful too, because it’s such an intimate show, we even had a nice chat with the owner.

There was such a variety at the show, though the wet morning did mean there were fewer cars than expected. It was still a great turnout though!This great Aston Martin Vantage V8 AMR, though I’m not really a fan of the stripe!

Lovely to see some great quality classics, like this beautifully preserved Mini.

This bright MG was definitely an eye-catching addition to the incredibly varied lineup!

And I’m a big fan of the Abarth 500! So it’s in the blog post!

Things to do:

The Tea Shed, is well stocked with homemade cakes and treats, and there’s plenty of indoor and outside seating to enjoy a drink, and relax. Better still, the money you spend goes to charity!

There were also food vans on site too, should you want something else to eat.

Check out or day at Wadebridge Wheels car show in this post.

There are activities to keep the kids amused, from classic games including hook a duck, whack the rat, face painting and more…

Hook a duck

Including local singers!

There is also a dog show and some stalls selling handmade items.

As a lover of all things handmade I liked seeing the Cornwall Association of Woodturners hard at work creating beautiful things – they were really friendly, and I learned some things too!

Local artist Kev from Art With Kev was there, to paint fun caricatures for attendees too!

Overall this is a great event, though it was a little rainy to begin with the day was bright and fun, everyone was really friendly, and it’s so nice to be able to support a good cause, while enjoying a day out!
