Look back to the vehicles that roamed the roads of yesteryear with over 450 pre-2001 commercial vehicles including trucks, vans and pick ups.

This is the Classic & Vintage Commercial Show, a rare opportunity to reminisce and remember the heavy vehicles that used to roll along our roads. The display of vehicles ranges from vans such as Ford Transits, Morris Minors and J Types, on to lighter lorries from Austin, Bedford, Dodge and Ford Thames and through to heavier lorries such as AECs, Atkinsons, ERFs, Fodens and Leylands. Whether you’re a fan of commercial vehicles, interested in vintage history or you simply want to see the commercial vehicles that were on the roads in your youth, this is for you.

Throughout the weekend there will be a large commercial vehicle related autojumble. This could be the chance to pick up a bargain or find that vital spare you’ve been looking for. You may even find a photo, brochure or model of your favourite commercial.

Tickets for the show include entry to the Museum and Collections Centre, giving you the chance to see over 350 more cars from our fabulous collection. In addition, inside the Museum there will be two large Indoor Model Shows, organised by Ashley Coghill and the National Association of Road Transport Modellers. Over 160 tables will showcase kit and scratch-built models of commercial vehicles and landscapes.

If you’re part of a commercial vehicle club, why not join our show display? Every year, we are joined by clubs such as the Foden Society, Morris Commercial Club, Morris J Type Register, Post Office Vehicle Club, REVS and the Transit Van Club.

Don’t take our word for it, here are what some of our recent visitors had to say:

-       “My husband being a ex lorry driver and now is in a mobility scooter to get around, found the show excellent not just for all the lorries (which he loved) and trade stands, but for the access in and around the grounds. It made the experience a lot more enjoyable.”

-      “Loved it. Great day out. Such a shame that our manufacturing capability has declined but fantastic seeing some of our heritage preserved for future generations. 10/10.”

-      “The staff very knowledgeable and helpful. It made the experience much more enjoyable.”

This show is supported by Kelsey Media who will be selling a number of their publications including Classic & Vintage Commercials, Classic Van and Pick Up, Heritage Commercials and Vintage Roadscene.
