Classics on the Common


Classics on the Common is our flagship event. Since we took over the show in 2009, ‘Classics’ has become one of Britain’s biggest mid-week classic car shows and is ranked as one of the top events of the classics calendar.

More than 1,000 cars, other 4-wheel vehicles, motorcycles and scooters, with thousands of spectators, fill Harpenden Common on a Wednesday in late July.

Charities have benefited, too. In 2021 the show raised over £33, 000. Since taking over the event we have raised and distributed more than £290,000 to needy causes.
