Sadly, for obvious reasons, the 2020 and 2021 show had to be cancelled. However, many of us took the opportunity of lockdowns and enforced time at home to potter in the garage and fix-up, make good, and polish our cherished vehicles. Now, with the evenings drawing out it’s time to ‘get the motor running, head out on the highway….’ and do what we love best – driving and showing off our beautiful vehicles.

Appledore Vintage & Classic Vehicle Rally has been running for 3 decades and every year we’ve seen increasing numbers of fantastic vehicles displayed and spectators who come to enjoy the show and entertainment. Weather is always a contributing factor to success of any outside event and we have had only had 3 really bad days, so we’re hoping this year the sun will shine on us all.

This show is organised by the Appledore Recreation Ground Management Committee who’s tireless work creates one of the largest events on the classic vehicle calendar in the south-east of England. However, all this could not be possible without the support of many more volunteer’s and their generosity. Of course, we would not have had such success without YOU and the dedication of the enthusiasts who maintain cars, motor bikes, stationary engines and commercial, agricultural military vehicles, many of whom we have the pleasure of meeting year after year.
