This year’s Ashover Charity Classic Car and Bike Show takes place on Sunday, July 28.
Local charities are once again set to benefit when hundreds of classic cars and bikes turn up at the picturesque Ashover Show Ground for an all-day rally, which could raise thousands of pounds for good causes in the area.
The event, which runs from 10am to 4pm will be attended by enthusiasts from the region and is expected to include classic cars, bikes and scooters from all eras.
Organised jointly for the third year running by the Rotary Clubs of Chesterfield, Chesterfield Scarsdale, Clay Cross and Matlock, the specific charities to benefit will be First Taste, Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline, Hope Springs Recovery Centre, McMillan Nurses, Samaritans, Weston Park Cancer Charity, and other Rotary charities.
Last year’s event raised more than £10,000 for charity.
There will be attractions for all the family, with a variety of refreshment stands and licensed bars. There is also entertainment in the main event arena, including performances by Chesterfield-based female vocalist and recording star Diana Edwards, renowned UK violinist Kate Chruscicka, Ashover Brass Band, and musical dance by Direction Theatre Arts. There is also a large sideshow with Autojumble and an Arts and Craft Fair. Public parking is free. The Ashover Show Ground is at Rectory Fields, Milken Lane, Ashover, S45 0BA.
Admission is £5 per person. Under 12s get in free but must be accompanied by an adult. For exhibitors, it is £5 per vehicle (includes two people free). You can also make a weekend of it by using the caravan and camping area.
The main sponsor is Autoworld, along with Stuart Bradley Jewellers, PCS Motor Factors, BRM Solicitors, and Castle Graphics.
