Festival of the Unexceptional 2018

Hagerty's Festival of the Unexceptional is a celebration of the cars that were the workhorses of their day. These were the saloons, estates and hatchbacks that took children to school, business people to work, and families on holiday but are now so rare. The Festival is free to attend for everyone.

The

centrepiece of the event is the Concours de l’Ordinaire, a competition of fifty of the best examples of Unexceptional cars built between 1966 and 1989. The vehicles will be judged by a professional team who will take into consideration condition, originality, and the story attached to the car or bike. Prior winners of the much-prized Best of Show award have included an immaculate and rare Nissan Cherry Europe, a Morris Marina pick-up truck, and a crowd-pleasing Hillman Avenger Super Estate. There is also a People's Choice award voted for by those who attend the show.

The Feast of the Unexceptional is also returning this year. Visitors are encouraged to bring a 1970s/ '80s style picnic - the best will win an award! So bring out the Battenberg cake, Curly Wurly bars, cheese and pineapple on sticks and, of course, the obligatory bottle of Babycham!

Classic vehicles of all eras are very welcome, and those with a Classic Car Parking ticket will be displayed on the event field (rather than the public car park behind the building).
