Festival of the Unexceptional – 27th July
If looking at multi-million-pound classics and hypercars isn’t really your thing, you’ll likely enjoy the Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional. This growing event doesn’t praise expensive, unattainable cars, but rather the more ordinary and mundane classics.
Held at Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire, there is even a part called the ‘Concours de l’Ordinaire’ celebrating the cleanest ‘normal’ cars around. In 2023, the winner was a 1991 Daihatsu Applause. Prices for tickets start from £25.
The British Motor Show 15 -18 August 2024
The British Motor Show returns for another year in 2024, with this family-focused event taking place at Farnborough International, in Hampshire, between August 15 and 18.
Offering driving experiences, stunts shows and live arenas, there’s plenty to see at this growing event. Prices for single tickets start from £23.50, though a family ticket for two adults and two children is an affordable £47.
Salon Prive 28 - 31 August 2024
If you want a more civilised motoring event without deafening engines revving, you’ll likely enjoy Salon Prive. Held between August 28th and 31st in 2024, the event centres around the Concours d’Elegance, which sees some of the world’s rarest and most valuable cars compete.
It’s an event where many dress up in style, enjoy the flowing champagne and stunning grounds of Blenheim Palace, near Oxford. There is a more ‘public’ day on Sunday, however. Prices range from £50 for a ticket through to a whopping £645 for full hospitality.
