About the Show


Once again, the Appledore Classic Car Show in 2023 surpassed all previous years by every measurement. More lovely vehicles on display, more enthusiasts visiting the show, and more clubs, stalls, and entertainment. Thank you all so much for your support.

Funds generated from the show continue to enable us to upgrade the Recreation Ground, Pavilion, and kids Playground in the centre of the village.

The definition of the show continues to evolve, as more cars become classics. Not only do we welcome 1920-30’s Bentleys, Fords, Lagonda’s, Morgans, Austins, Reily’s etc, but we see a ‘younger’ enthusiast proudly displaying 1970-80’s Ford Capri’s, Rovers, Porsche’s, etc, which many of us remember from our youth, but which are now considered classics.

Our show is organised by the Appledore Recreation Ground Management Committee whose tireless work creates one of the largest events, less formal, and fun events on the classic vehicle calendar in the south-east of England.

However, all this could not be possible without the generous support of many volunteers, and local businesses. Of course, we would not have such successful show without YOU and the dedication of the enthusiasts who maintain your beautiful cars, motor bikes, stationary engines, and commercial, agricultural military vehicles, many of whom we have the pleasure of meeting year after year.

Again, thank you for your kind support.
