Visitors come to the event to see the cars and motorbikes of the era race round the track at breakneck speeds with none of the modern safety aids to help them.
all around the site there are set pieces playing in the steets, with workmen holding up the traffic, spivvs selling watches, policemen chasing criminals and gangs of mod’s and rockers roving the streets. Tesco has green-shield stamps and St Trinians girls run riot with hockey sticks. its a kaleidoscope of movement and fun.
The evening events are full of life, with a funfair and music marquees with high quality acts giving renditions of the 40’s 50’s and 60’s music. there are rockabilly groups, trios of boogie-woogee singers and some psychedelic renditions that will make your toes curl!
So it dosent matter if you don't know your Lotus from your Alfa, your Hurricane from your Spitfire, or your Channel from your Dior ; if you just want to have a lovely day out wearing a fab frock and heels in a great venue then this is the place to come with all that and more.
I’ll not pretend, it is an expensive day out, but there is soooo much to see and do when you are there. Food is reasonable in the ‘over the road’ site next to the funfair, the night life is all free, and its a fabulous place to be stylish, fashionable, retro and chic!
