Important Information about Sunday's Show
The showground and surrounding areas are tinder dry and we have been advised by the Cranleigh Fire Service that we should not have any barbecues on Sunday because of the fire risk. The consequences of a grass fire with the number of vehicles we have attending does not bear thinking about, so please refrain from barbecuing this year.
Barhatch Road, close to the Cranleigh Showground, is currently closed for gas works, which means if you are travelling from the Guildford direction you must drive through the middle of Cranleigh and not via Smithwood Common Road, nor Horseshoe Lane/Amlets Lane. You can see details of this and other road closures in Surrey here.
In addition to 1,000 classic vehicles of all shapes and sizes and a large autojumble, we have attractions for all the family, including:
- Arena events, hosted by TV presenter Mark Evans
- Antique collectables
- Great food and a licensed bar
- Festival music
- Children's rides and entertainment
- Charity stalls and a chance to win a new BMW
Pride of Ownership Competition
For the first time we're hosting a Pride of Ownership competition, where you get to choose the winners!
We have three categories, Original Condition, where the vehicle must be close to how it left the factory, Daily Driver, a vehicle used pretty much every day and Modified, when anything goes.
You can find the cars in a special parking area (see the showground map in free Show Guide) and choose your favourite in each category using whatever criteria you like.
You will find an entry for in the free Show Guide, write vehicle's number displayed in the windscreen in the boxe and put the form in one of the collecting boxes in the Pride of Ownership area or at the Lions tent next to the PA caravan,
You will also be able to see the vehicles parade in the arena at 10:40am and prize giving is at 3:50pm.
We also have a Best in Show award, which will be chosen by TV presenter Mark Evans from the vehicles in the three categories. Mark has an unusual taste in vehicles, don't miss it!
New Arena Event
The arena is a popular part of our Classic Car Show and in addition to the Pride of Ownership we have an Italian Job style Mini Gymkhana.
Inspired by the charity run The Italian Job, five classic Minis will take part in some tricky autotests, where precision and timing beat speed.
Cheer on your favourite team at 2:30pm.
You can see the full Arena Timetable.
