Father's Day Classic Car Show19 June
The Father’s Day car show is being staged and organised by the MG Car Club Anglia Region, with members cars on show from Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire. The Anglia region is one of the largest of the 12 regions that make up the MG Car Club.
Not just for Fathers! Anyone who loves steam and diesel locomotives and buses will have a great day with us too!
The MG Car Club was formed in 1930 at the famous MG works in Abingdon, which closed in 1980 and this year sees commemorations marking 40 years of post-Abingdon MG’s, which started with the MG Metro of 1982.
It is also the 60th birthday of the MGBGT, that iconic and best-selling British sports car introduced in 1962, along with 20 years of the MG TF, the 2-seater soft top sports car that replaced the MG F.
Today, the MG Car Club is based at Kimber House in Abingdon, in the shadow of the former factory and caters for all MGs and their owners, from the earliest vintage machines through to the newest cars that carry the famous MG octagon badge. and is one of the oldest single marque car clubs in the world.
We expect a good selection of cars on show at North Weald, covering the MG story from sports to saloons; spot the car you always wanted, the bedroom poster cars of years gone by and the car your dad had back in the day. All of the owners are approachable and don’t be afraid to ask them questions!
Our usual steam and diesel trains, together with connecting heritage buses from Epping Underground and Shenfield National Rail stations will be running. The timetable can found by selecting your date of travel here.
