Leighton Classic Car and Bike Show
Mark Woodward’s midsummer classic car & bike show travels to the scenic Carnforth to showcase even more classics at this year’s Leighton Hall show.
This July will be a terrific opportunity to see over 500 classic vehicles at one of the most comprehensive and diverse shows in the summer classic car calendar.
Grade II* listed Leighton Hall is 5 miles north of Lancaster and easily accessed from the M6. Home to the Gillow family of furniture makers, it boasts unrivalled collections of exquisite furniture and artefacts. Take the opportunity to photograph classic cars in the historic parkland against the backdrop of the dramatic Lakeland fells, and explore the grounds and gardens.
Plenty of club stands and over 500 classic vehicles will be on show including cars, motorcycles, vans, trucks, 4x4s, military vehicles and commercials.
Highlights of the show include full arena displays and commentary throughout the day, plus trade stands and the ever-popular auto-jumble for the chance to pick up that elusive spare part, or classic insignia. Show admission includes admission to the nineteenth-century walled garden, woodland walks, and over 1500 acres of parkland, plus tea room. With house tours also available (at a small extra charge), there’s plenty to fill a summer’s day for all the family.
