Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival
Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival

Tewkesbury School Ashchurch Road

Sun 22nd Aug Gloucestershire


Following many successful years of organising the Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival, I regret to inform you that the event, due to take place at Tewkesbury School on Sunday 23 August 2020 will no longer go ahead.

The Rotary Club of Tewkesbury and its’ Classic Vehicle Festival organising committee have deemed it irresponsible to proceed with organising such a mass gathering. With visitor numbers now exceeding 5,000 at the popular one-day event, we do not want to become a potential ‘hotspot’ for spreading the Covid-19 virus. The safety of our exhibitors, performers, volunteers and visitors is paramount - we value you all far too much to take that risk!

If you have already purchased your entry tickets, be it a visitor, a show vehicle exhibitor, car club or trade stand we would be exceedingly grateful if you could roll it over until next year. By doing so, you will not only be supporting the shows future sustainability but all the marvellous charities that the event supports.

As you can imagine, the cancellation of the event will have a significant impact on the support that we can provide this year to the chosen charities. It’s so disheartening, especially at a time when they need it the most. If you kindly choose to roll your tickets over, simply retain your receipt/ticket to present at the event in 2021.

If you wish to obtain a ticket refund, please contact our ticket provider the Everyman Theatre directly my emailing: exchanges@everymantheatre.org.uk

For Trade stands enquiries please contact Rebecca Leppard, email: rebecca@eventspr.co.uk

I would to like to take this opportunity to apologise for the disappointment caused but thank you most sincerely for your support during this difficult period.

For further details or to be kept up to date about future event news, please visit the website:  https://tewkesburycvf.org/ or follow us on Facebook tewkesburyclassicvehiclefestival we are currently hatching exciting plans for a secondary automotive themed event for the Spring!

We look forward to welcoming you back on SUNDAY 22nd AUGUST 2021. Let’s hope 2021 will be a brighter year for us all!

Kind regards and stay safe,

Dick de Leeuw

CVF coordinator and President Elect of the Rotary Club of Tewkesbury 2020/2021


Sunday 23 August 2020 will see The Rotary Club of Tewkesbury stage their popular Classic Vehicle Festival at Tewkesbury School Playing Fields. The event is the Rotary Clubs’ biggest charity annual fundraiser which raises thousands of pounds for both national and regional charities.

The event features a spectacular display of over 1000 classic vehicles, from the dawn of the motoring era, to pre-war, post-war, American classics, custom cars, hot rods, supercars, motorbikes, those of historic and engineering significance to modern classics.

It’s not just cars either . . . over 200 classic motorcycles will be on display, with all the major marques represented, plus 110+ quality trade stands selling everything from car accessories, autojumble, memorabilia to jewellery and crafts, plus a bar, large dance floor and a wide selection of catering.

New for 2020 live music with the marvellous songstress Betsy Harmony and the ‘hot rockin’ powerhouse vocalist Jon Clare who will be belting out classic hits form the 195s and 60s.

The annual event is a must-do on the classic car show calendar. It’s a superb family day out, whilst raising vital money for worthwhile causes!
