The torrential rain of recent weeks has led to the last minute cancellation of the 15th Bedfordshire Classic Motor Show that would have been held in Woburn Deer Park this weekend.
Faced with already heavily waterlogged ground and the prospect of more rain to come, Greenwood Exhibitions’ event director Stephen Smith had no option but to pull the plug on the popular show.
Stephen said: “It is such a disappointment for everyone but our first duties are to the classic car owners and the venue itself. We just cannot risk damaging the cars if they bog down in the soft ground, and we certainly do not want to damage the Park, so the hard decision has been made and we will take much of the show, including the Concours Competition, forward to the Fathers’ Classic Day Out car show at Woburn on Sunday 17th June. It will make the June show even bigger and better than we had already planned.
“Classic car owners who have purchased a vehicle entry pass for this weekend at Woburn will be able to use it for entry to the June event at Woburn or to the Classic Car Rally at Old Warden Park on Sunday 20th May.”
