The Bradford Classic is a classic and historic vehicle show held annually in City Park, Bradford City Centre. Classic cars and motorcycles of all ages are welcome including those modified for competition use. It is an easy show to take part in and admission is FREE.

In 2019 it will be our fourteenth anniversary and we looking to make it bigger and better than ever. Vehicles will be on display to the public between 10.00am and 4.00pm, but entrants will need to be in position for 9.45am at the very latest. For security and safety reasons it will not be possible to enter or leave the display area during the show hours.

The event has been organised by Classic Events Bradford Ltd. It is a not for profit, run by volunteers and any surpluses generated will be put towards next years show.

We are also looking for volunteers to marshall at the show. This mainly involves wearing a high vis tabbard and giving information and advice to members of the public. If you are exhibiting you might consider being a marshall too.


Please note:
Entry to The Bradford Classic is free. However, due to space restrictions, not everyone requesting an entry to display their car will be guaranteed a space.

All entrants must ensure that their vehicles carry the appropriate insurance. Whilst security staff will watch over cars, the organisers cannot be held responsible for damage caused whilst vehicles are on display or on route to and from the event.
