Classic Car & Restoration Show

The Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show is the show to attend to kick-start the classic car season. Whether you are looking to ignite your passion to a finish restoration project or simply want to reminisce with family and friends over the beautiful completed classic cars on display, you should join us at the NEC Birmingham in March.

The event brings together 1000+ cars on display, 150+ car clubs representing a wide variety of marques and models; 250+ exhibitors and autojumblers including restoration companies, services providers and product suppliers; car auction, celebrities, car competitions and practical workshops on restoration skills.


With over 1,000 classics on display in varying conditions, this is the perfect place to see where you stand. There will be everything from rusty wrecks and crystal-cut classics so this is sure to give you a few ideas for your project.

Not only will the motors themselves provide you with some inspiration, but the vast range of products being brought along is sure to get that oil pumping.


There may be hundreds of cars but we've got thousands of experts coming along too. This means, no matter what the resto question, you'll be able to ask someone at the show!

There will be industry experts, motoring celebrities and club members who all have time to encourage you to get that project back up and running.


Previous years have seen the Discovery Live Stage hosted by the likes of Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead and 2020 will again have the same high-calibre talent.
Joined by fellow TV presenters, the content on stage and throughout the show will provide you with the latest news and tips for your resto project.


The hosts of the Live Stage will be joined by people in-the-know throughout the show.
They will provide details on trends and can be that live case study you've been needing to jump start your classic car maintenance.


Alongside the celebs, there will be a wide range of greasy, ultimate restorers around the show.
From car club members to fully-fledged resto company owners, these people are who you need to chat to.


The show is visited by over 28,000enthusiasts who all engage with one another. The exhibitors could have that one product that will help you with your way and club members may just have worked on the motor you're needing to finish - so ask away and chat.

You may also notice that the clubs are encouraged to work live on the cars they bring along. Don't be shy, the members may allow you to get involved!


From discovering, learning and engaging with everything at the show across the weekend, we're sure you'll be able to find that spark to finish your project or complete that maintenance.

You never know, the work you complete in the following months may mean you're displaying at the Classic Motor Show, in March the following year!
