Lakes Classic Car Show

Home / Lakes Classic Car Show

The Lakes Classic Car Show is an annual event organised by Windermere and Ambleside Lions Club. All proceeds go to chosen charities.

Since its inception this Lions event has grown year on year and has attracted some magnificent vehicles, lots of visitors and has helped to raise thousands of pounds for some very worthwhile local charities.

We encourage you to bring the family along for this fun-filled day and see some magnificent classic cars, motor bikes, caravans, trucks and tractors. And why not make a day of it with the family and join in our many attractions and games, including a Charity Car Pull Competition!

The event this year is scheduled for Sunday 19th June 2016 on the Grasmere Sportsfield in Cumbria. You can bring along the whole family to have a fun-packed day out. On arrival visitors will be given a score sheet to vote for your favourite vehicle across a number of categories – and prizes are awarded based on the public vote.

If you are an owner of a classic vehicle we encourage you to bring it along to display to the public. We only charge £5 per vehicle, which also gets two people into the show. Instructions and entry forms can be located on this site.

This event attracts in excess of 2000 visitors each year – and received press coverage on the local radio, newpapers and social media sites. We have advertising packages available for local businesses to support our event, and the beneficiary charities. Please contact us for further information.

The Lakes Charity Classic Vehicle Show is organized by the Windermere & Ambleside Lions Club. All proceeds from our event are donated to worthwhile local charitable causes. Receiving specific donations from this year’s show will be Cumbria Children’s Hospice – the Jigsaw Trust and South Lakeland Young Carers. Both charities help disabled people to enjoy their lives.
