Classic and Steam Vehicle Show

Classic and Steam Vehicle Show

Covid 19 – This event has been postponed until 10th-12th September 2021. 

It is with much regret and sadness that we are having to follow suit and have to announce the Classic Steam & Vehicle Show at Harmans Cross in aid of Swanage Railway due to take place on the 11th – 13th september will no longer be taking place this year and is postponed until weekend September 10th – 12th 2021

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic we have been closely monitoring the situation and after considering the safety and well-being of our visitors, exhibitors, traders, marshals, committee members and ongoing uncertainty. we have today taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Show. It has become increasingly evident that it would be both irresponsible and unfeasible to continue with the show this year, during these uncertain and challenging times. As you would appreciate this decision has not been taken lightly and our best interests are of the exhibitors & public safety and welfare. We have liaised with the Railway and they understand our decision with the utmost safety in mind. 

Plans will be well under way for our 2021 show in due course and we plan to make it one of the best shows yet.
If you are already booked for this year your booking is automatically transferred for next year.
Should you prefer a refund then please contact Sharon on 07899083546.

We would like to thank everyone for there continued support throughout the years and we hope you will continue supporting us for next years show.
Stay safe.
Kind regards
The Directors and Committee
Bournemouth & Poole Preservation Club Ltd
