Classic cars and bikes on offer

Historic Leighton Hall will once again play host to the Lakeland Classic Car and Bike Show on Sunday, September 2.

Organised by Mark Woodward Classic Events, this is just one of 12 shows held at different locations around the country.

Due to the depressing downpours, the Leighton Hall Classic Car and and Bike Show had to be postponed until later on in the season – in the hope that there is a balmy Indian Summer.

Featuring more than 500 classic cars, motorcycles, commercials, classic Land Rovers and ex-military vehicles, the show will also include trade stands and an autojumble for anyone looking to bag a bargain.

With parades, running commentaries throughout the day, judging of the classes, competitions and prizes galore, this is a great day out for the whole family.

A unique Lancashire hall with a fascinating past where no areas are roped off, Leighton Hall is the lived-in house of the famous furniture making Gillow family.

As well as the house and grounds, Leighton has a children’s play area, caterpillar maze, plant conservatory and charming tea rooms.

Admission is from 10am until 4pm with adult tickets £6.50 and children £3 (children under seven are free of charge).

Admission includes the grounds, gardens and tea room, but there will be a small additional charge for tours of the house.

Ample car parking is available and well behaved dogs on leads are welcome on the show field.
