Our Classic Transport Festival returns on Sunday 18th August and is set to be even bigger and better than ever!

The Mary Ann Evans Hospice is working in conjunction with the NBBC, Katz Dancewear and Morton’s Vintage Hire once again to deliver a fabulous day for all the family in Nuneaton Town Centre. We have a classic vehicle display, street food, entertainment, and much much more. Last year’s event proved to be a roaring success as the Town Centre came alive with over 150 vehicles taking part in the event overall. Hundreds of locals also filled the streets of the Town Centre viewing the Classic Vehicles on display and welcoming the rally participants as they arrived into the town.

Debra June & The Rockin’ Tunes, a dynamic six piece Rock n Roll band featuring Sax, Boogie Woogie piano, Double Bass, Guitars and Drums with male & female vocals and harmonies, will be entertaining throughout the day. The band will be performing sensational songs from the 1950’s with music from DJ Howling Wolf in between sets! Anker Radio will also have stations throughout the town keeping all spectators up to date with announcements & interviewing vehicle owners.

Magic Matt Redmond will also be entertaining families with stilt walking, a magic show and balloon modelling!

Sponsors of the event so far include Weston Hall

The event is open to all classic and sports cars, motorbikes and commercial vehicles.
