This year’s classic car show stepped up a gear to deliver a fantastic experience for all, returning to the town after a year off.
 
The Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Crash Box & Classic Car Club of Devon were delighted with the successful return of the Sidmouth Classic Car Show on Saturday, September 18, which like many things was postponed last year due to the pandemic
This year’s show, which has now become one of the town’s premier events,  was held at the Sidmouth Cricket Club and saw a record number of visitors, visiting not only the show but spending the day in the town too. Businesses have reported to the Chamber that they saw a welcome increase in trading.
A Spokesperson from the Chamber said: “It was fabulous to welcome so many people to our beautiful town. The atmosphere was amazing as was the weather. Our sincere thanks goes to all of our wonderful sponsors, volunteer helpers and Sidmouth Cricket Club, as without them the show would not be possible”.
Visitors were able to view an impressive range of cars dating from 1914 to 2001 and were also entertained throughout the day by the well known and popular City Steam Jazz band and The Liberty Sisters, a 1940s-style singing group.
 
All proceeds from the show will be used by the Chamber of Commerce within the town to support local events like Late Night Shopping, the erection of Flags and Bunting around town, donation to the Town Council towards the Christmas Lights and events to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
 
Next year The Sidmouth Classic Car show will return on Saturday, September 17, 2022.
