"Calling all classics‼️Bristol/Somerset/Devon/South Wales/Wherever

The Pageant of transport show is back!

The Weston-super-Mare seafront classic show is held on 11th-12th of April 2020 EASTER WEEKEND. A brilliant way to kick off the show season, free entry both days with over 600 cars in attendance. This year we wana get as many capris there as possible 👌🏻

Anybody is welcome to join the convoy through the town to the show ground.

If you're coming from further afield serial Capri owner Adam Lagley has got you covered offering rooms and great food at the Bear Inn, with secure parking walking distance from the seafront, town centre and the show ground.

Really not one to miss."

Looking forward to it Andrew, and probably first drive of 2020.
Not been there for years, but I have the AA route for Mc Donalds.

It's definitely worth the trip up from Devon. The show last year was brilliant.

:agree: less than an hour drive.
Will get MOT done beforehand so will have a few miles on it to blow out the cobwebs :)

Someone mentioned it's £3 per car this year. Not many free shows now!!

It could be that the government is on the verge of banning events and gatherings of more than 500 people.

The attendance at this show last year was well in excess of that figure, although I would have thought they weren't all there at the same time.
Although it will be disappointing if shows are cancelled, the safety of the public must come first.

Cheltenham should have been banned, risking all those people together and then panicking about future gatherings when people have possibly already caught and spread it :doh:

With many shows already paid for, I really won't be surprised if my car stays in the garage most of this year.

I think we'll see a lot of cancellations. A lot of Europe seems to have shut down and it's only a matter of time before the same happens here.

No suprise Andrew!

If I get to a few shows late summer then good, but with many still refusing to stay home I can see this dragging on far longer :roll:
