Sad to say that the 2020 event is cancelled

2020 Show Cancelled

The Team at The Classic Car Show met (virtually!) last week to review the situation re COVID-19 and its impact on this wonderful event - and as you will have guessed we are not able to go ahead on our planned date of 31 May .  We have tried hard to plan for a later date in the Autumn,  but this has not proved to be possible. 

A very big 'Thank You' to those Exhibitors and Stallholders who have already shown support. 


We plan to return in 2021, and have a NEW, BIGGER and BETTER venue for our seventh year of The Classic Car Show,  at

      Summerpit Farm, Bury Road, Elveden, IP24 3TD. 

  • More Exhibitor space per car, 
  • Better layouts for Clubs, 
  • More stalls of all types
  • Loads of easy visitor parking!!

The Summerpit Farm Entrance is easy to find, on the Bury Road, 0.8 miles south of the Elveden Inn and the crossroads in the village centre,  signposted on the day.

In 2019 we raised £14,000 for the NSPCC West Suffolk Branch in their 125th Anniversary year, and for the Charities supported by Bury Abbey Rotary Club, so once again, a very big thank you to everyone who Exhibited,  Supported and Attended or Helped, in 2019

2020 was to have been our seventh year and following the enormous success of the last four years in particular, all of us on the team for The Classic Car Show greatly appreciate the ongoing support in difficult times from Exhibitors, Supporters, The Elveden Estate, the NSPCC, and Rotary Club members. 


Charities supported by this Event

This event is run jointly by the NSPCC and the Bury St Edmunds Abbey Rotary Club.  All net profits shall be split equally between the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (Registered Charity number 216401 and SC037717) and Bury St. Edmunds Abbey Rotary Club 

Last year the Rotary Club of Bury St Edmunds Abbey raised almost £20,000 nearly all of it for local causes, some well known charities, and some much smaller, all working hard to improve the community in the local area. We are proud to have met and helped some remarkable people running great organisations

The NSPCC are fortunate enough to have Lady Iveagh as President for West  Suffolk, and would like to thank Lord and Lady Iveagh for their  continued support of this event , and for giving us the opportunity of a new and bigger venue for 2020.

By  coming along to an NSPCC event, you’ll be helping to keep children  safe. The money we raise will help children rebuild their lives, and  help us find ways  to prevent child abuse from ruining any more childhoods. When a child  needs a helping hand, we’ll be there. When parents are finding it tough,  we’ll help. When laws need to change or governments need to do more, we  won’t give until things improve.

Together, we can change childhoods.
