Thousands of visitors from all over Europe are expected to converge on this nostalgic show which will feature hundreds of classic and vintage commercial vehicles prior to 1985.

Visitors can also wander around the indoor model show featuring over 160 tables of models on display including kit built or scratch built models in different scales. There will also be a vast array of working radio control models inside and outside the museum.
Emma Rawlinson, Event Executive for the Heritage Motor Centre stated “We’re delighted to be hosting the Classic and Vintage Commercial Show for the fifth year enabling visitors to admire these amazing nostalgic vehicles. This event is a real step back in time and fascinating for families. Not only can you see different types of commercial vehicles from a small Morris Minor Van through to the large Scammell Heavy Haulage Tractors, but you can also find a brilliant bargain at the trade stands”.
