For the enthusiasts among us, classic car festivals are a gold mine. We have narrowed the everlasting list down to 10 events we think you’ll love this year.

Bicester Heritage Sunday Scrambles, Oxfordshire.

If you’ve not yet experienced a Scramble at Bicester Heritage, make it your New Year’s resolution to do so in 2019. In just four years, these informal events have gone from coffee ’n’ cars affairs to essential gatherings of thousands of enthusiasts and varied vehicles.

Anything goes. You’re just as likely to come across a Lamborghini 400GT as you are a Peugeot 505 – and many of the Technical Site residents open up for more delights. Anyone is welcome to attend, whether in a classic car or not, and tickets are cheap: from just £5 if you are in a classic, £8 if you’re not.

Classic Nostalgia, Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb, Worcestershire.

Few events are blessed with a location as picture-perfect as Classic Nostalgia. And what’s more, Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb in Worcestershire is absolutely steeped in motoring history, as this charming yet often awe-inspiring event will soon remind you. Nor is it simply a static car show with demo runs: the drivers are going up the hill against the clock, and they really will be going flat-out.

The Brooklands Double Twelve, Surrey.

Think of the Double Twelve as the essence of Brooklands condensed into one weekend and you won’t go far wrong: it features every type of motorsport associated with the historic venue and takes place on the anniversary of its first race in 1907.

Bicester Heritage Super Scramble, Oxfordshire.

This new addition to the classic car calendar promises all the fun and laid-back vibes of a usual Scramble, but with a little extra – specifically, track action.

There's not much information out there about it yet, but the Bicester Heritage website should have more details soon.

Festival of the Unexceptional, Claydon Estate, Buckinghamshire.  

A cheap and very cheerful antidote to the more exclusive affairs taking place elsewhere this summer, the brilliant Festival of the Unexceptional swaps multi-million pound motors for those everyday heroes we used to drive but now rarely see on the road.

With a change of venue for 2019, expect the Hagerty-organised festival to move a further step towards mainstream acceptance this year.

Silverstone Classic, Northamptonshire.

If you’ve never made it to the Silverstone Classic before, 2019 is a good time to make the trip as it’s the first time that F1, F2 and F3 cars will all be competing at the event. It’s a great opportunity to get close to a host of super historic racers and enjoy a fun family day out.

National Metro and Mini Show and Mini World Record Attempt, Warwickshire.

With the Mini celebrating its 60th birthday in 2019, the organisers are gathering around 600 examples at the British Motor Museum the day before the show itself, and arranging them to spell out ‘Mini 60’ – and thus set a new Guinness world record. They’re keen for owners to get involved, so if you fancy that, head this way.

Salon Prive, Oxfordshire.

Salon Privé is now firmly established as one of the UK’s best classic car shows, a position cemented in 2018 when it was chosen as one of the eight concours events eligible for the Peninsula Classic Awards.

The location doesn’t hurt: it takes place in the grounds of the stunning Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, a backdrop which can’t help but make the beautiful classics on display look even more breathtaking.

Concours of Elegance, Hampton Court, Surrey.

After several years spent moving around various royal palaces, the Concours of Elegance settled into a five-year residency at Hampton Court Palace in 2017 – and swiftly proved that it’s the perfect backdrop for priceless classic cars. 

Sixty of the rarest vehicles from around the world will take part in the concours – which, unusually, is voted for by the owners of the cars themselves.

GoodWood Revival, West Sussex.

The highlight of the classic car year, in the UK at least, has to be the Goodwood Revival.

Why? Well partly because it offers three days of wheel-to-wheel racing in often priceless classics; last year’s Kinrara Trophy was reportedly the most expensive historic race ever to take place, with more than £100million worth of Ferraris, Jaguars and more competing. But more than that, the Revival has always been about the whole feel of the thing. Everyone dresses up in fabulous period style, there’s a retro funfair, ’30s-era shops and evocative buildings everywhere… even the music is in keeping with the ethos.
