Upcoming Events

Upcoming Events



Our regular, informal pub meets form the backbone of our events calendar.


We hold these ‘display your vehicle’ style meetings at a few venues every month throughout the year. Right now, probably our stand-out meet is the fine dining lunchtime meet at The Punch Bowl Inn, Marton-cum-Grafton, near Boroughbridge, held each 1st Saturday of the month. It’s very well attended with some great Classic Cars on display.

We also arrange drive-outs, tours, museum visits, car club show displays, and other sorts of events.

We now wish to expand the scope of the website to include classic car enthusiasts from all over the UK. We are looking to increase our membership to hold meetings, events, and shows over the widest geographical reach possible.
