Huge motor festival set for Leighton Hall this August

TO celebrate the easing of lockdown restrictions Carnforth’s Leighton Hall has announced its upcoming classic car festival that will take place next month.

Held on August 8, the historic hall will plat host to hundreds of classic vintage motors and bringing a nostalgic event to the public.

Leighton will be packed with hundreds of cars, motorcycles, historic vans, trucks, ex-military vehicles, classic commercials, old Land Rovers, stunning soft tops and shiny sports cars.

Private classic cars are warmly invited along, so it’s a great opportunity to show off your pride and joy in the summer sun.

Due to Covid restrictions, this is the first show of the season that club stands have been allowed to join in, so the organiser, Mark Woodward, is really looking forward to it.

He said “After such an uncertain year for event organisers, it feels so good to come back to a venue we know and love, especially now life feels a bit more normal.

“Still working safely, it means we can show many more cars than before and I’m really looking forward to welcoming the club displays back.

“They are always a favourite with visitors.

“This show could see record numbers of both exhibitors and visitors alike, so we are advising to prebook where possible.”

Visitors can prebook tickets via www.leightonhall.co.uk or www.markwoodwardclassicevents.com or can pay at the gate.

To celebrate the easing of restrictions all children under 15 are free of charge and well-behaved dogs on leads welcome.
