A variety of classic British vehicles from the emergency services including ambulances, fire and police will be on display. Demonstrations showing the power of military vehicles will also be held, with armoured vehicles and small arms firing blank rounds and shells, giving visitors an idea of the noise emitted from these weapons.  

For the classic enthusiasts there will be displays from a number of top British car clubs as well as individual classic car entries and a guest foreign section for foreign vehicles. 

An indoor Retro Collectors Fair will be held at the same time, with an array of collectable toys, TV and film advertising on display. 

Tom Caren, show manager for the Heritage Motor Centre, said: "This is the first time that we have held this show and we are delighted to be hosting a brand new classic car show as part of our milestone 21 years celebration. We hope visitors come along, enjoy the show and join in with our celebrations in what promises to be a great day out."
