Classic cars return to Downside

Downside Abbey, a Benedictine monastery 12 miles south of Bath, will host its Fifth Classic Car Show, on Sunday 24th June 2018.

Mike Penn, Founding Curator of the Haynes International Motor Museum, said of the event, “The show is based in a remarkable setting and always with a fantastic array of top-class vehicles. I really recommend the Downside Classic Car Show to anyone who might be considering it.”

The gathering of vintage, classic and interesting vehicles is now in its fifth year at the elegant Stratton-on-the-Fosse site. Each year, over 100 cars are on display with vehicles in the past including a 1904 De Dion Bouton, a 1926 Bugatti T23 Brescia, a 1936 Squire, a delightfully unrestored 1926 AC Sociable, and a 1911 Stanley Steam Car.

If you have a vehicle that you would like to register for the event, please contact Sarah Kerr or call 01761 235194.

The site is on the Mendip Hills, on the Somerset/Wiltshire/Dorset border, just south of Bath and Bristol. Free tours of the Abbey and School will also be available.
