Vintage delights for classic car lovers

Have your say

ONE of the biggest classic car shows in the region is taking place again this summer.

The Rotary Club of Chesterfield’s Classic Car and Bike Show will be held at Renishaw Hall on Wednesday, June 12.

Hundreds of classic cars and bikes are expected for the annual rally which raises thousands of pounds for local charities.

The event, which will be open from 3pm until 8pm, is attended by enthusiasts from all over the region and includes classic cars and bikes from all eras.

Organised each year by the Rotary Club of Chesterfield, the three local charities to benefit will be Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and Chesterfield’s Ashgate Hospice.

Stuart Bradley, one of the organisers of the show, said: “Renishaw Hall is the perfect venue for this charitable event which we have run successfully for several years now in support of these important local charities.”

There will be musical entertainment from Direction Theatre Arts, and refreshments will also be available.

Admission is £5 per vehicle.

And the following month, the 2013 Ashover Classic Car and Bike Show, will be held on Sunday, July 28.

The event is being organised jointly by Chesterfield, Chesterfield Scarsdale, Clay Cross and Matlock Rotary Clubs.

Main sponsor for both events is car dealership Autoworld, which has bases in Sheffield and Chesterfield.
