Classic & Vintage Commercial Show

An unmissable chance to look back at a huge selection of iconic historic heavy vehicles. The Classic and Vintage Commercial Show attracts an array of classic commercials such as the Morris Minor and Ford Transit vans through to the familiar marques of the 1950s and 60s, including Fodens, ERFs, AECs, Leylands and then Volvos and Scanias that took over the roads of Britain from the 1970s onwards. There are models fitted with timber cabs, post-war steel cabs and then onto post 1960s fibreglass cabs. This event is a real step back in time and a fascinating trip down memory lane, even if you have never been connected to the world of commercial vehicles. 

The Morris Commercial Club will be celebrating a century of Morris Commercial Lorries. Stop by their club stands and get a glimpse of a range of these historic knights of the road.

Plus for those enthusiasts restoring vehicles there is a large commercial vehicle related autojumble selling vehicle spares, photos, brochures, models and all manner of items associated with the world of historic commercial vehicles. There are also 2 indoor model shows within the Museum with a combined total of over 160 tables of models on display. The model show also attracts a number of overseas visitors, including entries from Europe. Whether they are kit or scratch built these models add a different aspect to the show and highlight an array of different scaled models.

Tickets for the show include entry to the Museum and Collections Centre, giving you the opportunity to see over 400 cars, mapping over a century of motoring history!
