Food, glorious food

May 20, 2011

Those who were intrigued by the addition of a curry stall at last year’s show (due to a last-minute cancellation from the caterers already booked), will be pleased to know that normal service will be resumed this year.

As the name suggests, Brodies Coffee will be supplying hot beverages, while Terry Lister’s Burger Van makes a welcome return to the showground. Terry will be on site and ready to serve bacon baps from 9am for those arriving early and will be in attendance throughout the day.

If you fancy something a little more civilised then there are also a good number of pubs within walking distance that serve food.


2011 bookings coming in!

May 13, 2011

It may well only be May, but we already have bookings for the 2011 show on 8 October. The latest comes from the Fiat 500 Club who will be attending with a group of cars. I’ve always yearned for an early 500 since spotting several restoration projects in Spain several years ago. Maybe one day…

Date for the 2011 Thatcham Classic

October 14, 2010

Nothing like starting early, but we already have a date for next year’s show. Saturday 8 October is the date for your diaries, so pencil it in now! No need to start polishing just yet though…

Naturally, by posting your images you give permission for them to be displayed on this website but we hope you will share your pictures of the day.

To pay or not to pay?

October 12, 2010

We pride ourselves on the fact that Thatcham Classic is an entirely non-profit making event. However, we are keen to increase the amount of money made for charity. The traditional donations bucket seems to be a little hit and miss so the question is: should we sell entry tickets in order to guarantee a minimum donation? Say £3 for instance. Would that put people off? Let us know by commenting…

2010 Thatcham Classic – a thank you!

October 12, 2010

A big thank you to all those who took the time and effort to come along to the 2010 Thatcham Classic. We ended up with around 220 classic vehicles on the showground, and despite the sun not turning up as promised, a good day seemed to be had by all. Already we are planning the 2011 show and would welcome your comments and suggestions (polite ones please!). Hopefully we will be able to confirm the date in the next couple of months. Martin Port, Thatcham Classic.
