About the Event
Trowbridge and Westbury Lions Club are teaming up again to run The White Horse Classic and Vintage Vehicle Show.
Held in Westbury Country Park under the attentive eye of the iconic chalk Westbury White Horse, the show anticipates around 300 classic vehicles. At previous shows, the two Lions Clubs have, between them, attracted an assortment of Classic Cars, Classic Motorcycles, Commercial Lorries, Classic Tractors and an eclectic bunch of extras.
Westbury Country Park is home to Westbury Golf Club, Westbury RFC and the White Horse Country Park. From the showground, it is possible to see local paragliders and kite enthusiasts when they are out and about, flying over the hills at the White Horse.
If you have time, take a walk to the top for breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding area. If walking to the top, keep dogs on leads as sheep are roaming around. Be informed it is quite steep and can get very cold and breezy!
The inaugural 2018 event was an instant success with such additional attractions as a look-a-like ‘Back to the Future’ Delorean DMC 12, and ‘Daisy’ the bright yellow 1978 VW camper - complete with side awning and welcome mat - Daisy being watched over by her vigilant spotty black dog mascot! The organisers are always trying to improve on the previous year’s show. This year should be no exception!
The children's funfair and the bouncy castle was a massive success in 2018. Other stalls and attractions can be found scattered across the event field. The show has live music from local talent, kids games, hot and cold snacks, and a licensed bar.
The Trowbridge and Westbury Lions Club are part of the Lions Club of Great Britain and fundraise for local charities. All proceeds from the show will be donated to charities and those in need in the surrounding area of Trowbridge and Westbury. The organisers are very grateful to those who donate at the show and provide sponsorship.
Entry to the show is £5 per adult and free admission for accompanied children. The Lions welcome you to come along, wish you a most glorious family day out, and thank you for your support and contribution to the local communities. Without your support, the show cannot be as successful as it is.
Reaching the showground by car use the A350 (Melksham to Warminster Road) if traveling from the North or South. The White Horse Country Park is signposted along the road - however the signs can be a little difficult to see, so keep your eyes peeled.
The show opens its gates at 10.30am and wraps the day off at 4.00pm. For those staying on Saturday or making a long weekend of it, there are a few B&Bs dotted around, and for the campers amongst you Midbrooks Campground is less than 20min drive away, and there are other options further afield. Aside from the fantastic Classic Car Show and picturesque local scenery, the area also provides things for the family like Clanger Wood and Trowbridge Museum..
