Tickets are already selling fast for the 2021 London Classic Car Show
The UK’s season-opening event, the London Classic Car Show will take place on 25-27 June 2021. The organisers have pulled out all the stops to move it to a new outdoor – but covered – location at Syon Park.
The new venue, Syon Park, is situated on the banks of the River Thames, opposite the world famous Kew Gardens in West London. It’s easy to drive to, and park at, if you’re avoiding public transport during the pandemic, and great lengths will be gone to in order to make it COVID-compliant.
“It’s outdoors but it’s covered,” says event director Mark Woolley of London Classic Car Show organisers Brand Events. “We’ll have open-side marquees, the stands will be spaced out more than usual, and the run of trade stand tents will all be divided. Then there will also be two open-sided super-structures, 25x80m each in size, for the premium stands. This is where the dealers will be; the demand has been quite substantial for these.
The theme for the London Classic Car Show 2021 will be The Evolution of Design, covering the 135 years from the first Benz Quadricycle to the present day, which allows all ages of car to be displayed. There will be more curated content this year to ensure the best possible spread of cars, with eight special six-car displays. They will include a celebration of 60 years of the Jaguar E-type and the 100th anniversary of the game-changing Lancia Lambda.
Tickets are available in advance for £25 each, or £30 on the day if available – though Mark Woolley warns that ticket numbers are limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, and they’re selling much faster than expected.
“The tickets sales have really surprised us,” admits Mark. “We weren’t 100% sure what the response would be like but I think people are desperate to get out there again. The pandemic has given us all a massive appreciation of life.”
