The next Pangbourne Classic Car Show will take place on Saturday 3 June 2023 at Pangbourne College.
The event started in June 2016 and was the brainchild of Tom Cheney, Assistant Head: Boarding. The idea behind the show is to engage and enthuse our pupils, especially those who are involved in our Car Restoration Club, which is currently working on two Classic Cars; they are a 1970 Bond Equipe GT4 and a Rickman Ranger kit car.
The show also demonstrates to our pupils the wide variety of vehicles that are part of an amazing vintage and classic car industry, but perhaps most importantly, the event raises money for charity.
Our first show had 100 fabulous vehicles on display and welcomed around 1,000 spectators. The event has grown in popularity and we now have around 250 vintage, classic and modern classic vehicles displayed each year, with over 4,000 spectators attending last year.
The event is based around our community and all of the helpers are volunteers that work for the College as teachers and support staff, or current and past pupils who have been involved with the Classic Car Restoration club. The event is slightly different from most classic car shows as the cars are arranged in make and age order, allowing spectators to see the progression of marks as designs evolved.
There is a very relaxed atmosphere, with the Pangbourne Silver Band playing at different points in the day, and car owners and spectators alike enjoying the cars and the natural beauty of the College grounds throughout the day.
We have been very lucky over the past four years to have been backed by local businesses such as H. R. Owen dealership, who are based in Pangbourne Village and have always brought a great selection of new Aston Martins, Bentleys and Lamborghinis for spectators to look at and sit inside! We have also been supported by Kingdom Coffee which provides refreshments and cream teas throughout the day, with all profits donated to the charities.
We do hope that you can join us in either displaying your own Vintage, Classic or Modern Classic at the show on Saturday 3 June 2023, or by joining us as a spectator to view the amazing vehicles that we are lucky enough to have on display.
