Despite showers throughout the day, the event showcased an array of classic and vintage automobiles, leaving attendees in awe of their timeless beauty and historical significance. Organised by Redditch BID in association with Shakespeare Rally Promotions, the annual Redditch Classic Motor Show lived up to its reputation of being one of the premier events of its kind in the region.

Visitors poured into Redditch town centre to witness the impressive display of classic cars, motorcycles, and other vintage vehicles. The motor show featured a wide range of iconic automobiles from different eras, allowing attendees to appreciate the evolution of automotive design and engineering. Throughout the day, enthusiasts were treated to various attractions and activities, including live music performances, delicious food vendors, and family-friendly entertainment. Visitors also had the opportunity to engage with automobile experts, who shared their knowledge and provided valuable insights into the historical and technical aspects of the showcased vehicles.

The addition of Batman and the iconic Boatmobile inside the Kingfisher Centre proved to be a massive hit with the tenants, as huge crowed poured into the centre to witness the superhero. Batman was seen visiting many businesses to take memorable snaps with the staff. “It’s incredible to witness the resilience and passion of classic car enthusiasts,” said Muj Rahman, Redditch BID Manager. “Despite the rain, we couldn’t be more thrilled with the turnout and the positive feedback we received from both exhibitors and visitors alike. Their appreciation for classic automobiles is truly inspiring.

The success of the Redditch Classic Motor Show would not have been possible without the support of our exhibitors, dedicated volunteers, and the Redditch community. Their commitment and enthusiasm ensured that the event was a memorable experience for all attendees. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who attended and contributed to the show’s success, demonstrating their unwavering love for classic vehicles. We look forward to welcoming them back next year, with the hopes of better weather and an even more remarkable display of automotive history.”

Adrian Field, General Manager at the Kingfisher Centre added “footfall in the Centre on Saturday was 21.8% up on the same Saturday last year and ahead of the Saturday pre-covid in 2019 by 2.1%. The car parks were also very busy. This is great news for our tenants and the positive work that Redditch BID does to help them boost trade. Feedback from businesses has been very positive.”

Carrying the spirit of resilience, passion, and celebration of classic automobiles, the Redditch Classic Motor Show proved that even rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of devoted enthusiasts. As the event came to a close, attendees were left with memories of an inspiring gathering that celebrated the artistry and craftsmanship of classic motoring.
