The Ford Show is coming – Sunday 28th October at Donington Park

Filed under: Classic News,Shows |
The next Ford Show is set to take place on Sunday 28th October, at Donington Park, Derbs, DE74 2RP. The Ford event at Donington last October was a great success with the vast majority of the traders and clubs enjoying the event, which had been reinstated after the closure of Donington a couple of years ago. Clearly the economic landscape is very different now to how it was when Donington closed in 2009 but visitors still travelled from all over the UK and many came over from Ireland to visit the show. Again many of the traders we have met at other events since last October reported excellent takings and are glad to see Donington back as the only indoor Ford show in the calendar. Please click here for a booking form and Exhibition Hall plan for booking your club, concours entry and trade or autojumble stand at Donington. All the club stands accommodating six cars each are nearly allocated and we also have space for around a dozen concours entries too, which are filling up fast. The trade and autojumble stands are all reasonably priced so we expect to see the hall full to capacity again well before the show opens so don’t leave it too late before booking your stand. Before finishing I can’t let the opportunity go by to mention the weather which has been officially the worst summer in 100 years. When we were at Malvern on 1st April for a Mini show the weather was glorious but since then we can count on the fingers of one hand the decent Sundays or Bank holiday Mondays we have enjoyed. With lots of shows, including many of our own, cancelled at the last minute or postponed due to ground conditions it has been a difficult season for traders, enthusiasts, organisers and visitors alike and many people have told me recently that they were looking forward to getting back to some indoor accommodation with hardstanding car parking.Tags:
