Hopefully will be able to get there for this as it does have the potential to be a nice day out - interesting that you are saying it is a great show, and I'm hoping that it is, but the previous years video on youtube didn't look that great actually, maybe just that the video didn't really capture it well smile
Last year was the first time that we had been to it, found out about it the day before and was expecting it to just be like the power museum meet (a few really nice cars amongst the usual and some tables set up like a church fete, seen everything in 30 mins and then stand around drinking coffee). I think that we managed 5 hours at Promenade park and left because we were tired and sunburnt, not bored. The trade stands were the size of a half decent boot sale, the music stage always had a good crowd watching and the layout and selection of cars was awesome. We were half way through the day before I realised that there was an entire section that I hadn't even noticed filled up with Ferrari F40s hehe

Cool, sounds good, just got to convince the other half that it's something we should attend but in any case I might just make a solo visit if she is not interested smile

The first of hopefully a new monthly car meet took place Sunday at North Weald airfield. Lovely collection of American classics, and a few modern sports cars, and a whole gaggle of Caterhams.

Hi, it is the Margaretting village fair this Saturday at 1pm, if you have something old and interesting please bring it along if you wish. It is at the village hall. Admission is a whole pound, or 50p for kids. Last year circa 20 cars came.
Thanks

Quite a nice little show in a nice place.

I think the battlesbridge ones have ceased.

Yes, the big shows at Battlesbridge have come to an end, but they do a classic car breakfast club once a month through the summer. The next one is 16th June.

Same place at the back or in the main car park? And what time please ?

It starts at 9am http://www.battlesbridge.com/events

They have only done two so far, the weather was bad for both and the turnout was surprisingly good for the first one but disappointing for the second. I'm hoping that when the weather is better and people actually want to get their old cars out it might be more popular. For the first one I walked around in the rain, for the second it wasn't much better.

I think the breakfast club is where the old shows used to be but they now have a much smaller area. When you turn off Maltings Road into the farm and have all of those little antique places either side of you, the show is right in front of you with parking to the right.

Motorfest Chelmsford this weekend, otherwise might have headed to Battlesbridge to see what the breakfast meetings were like.
Did one of the previous ones happen at the same time as the first auto-jumble event? Heard that wasn't too good.

No auto jumble at either of the breakfast events I've been to, so must have been a different thing.

They are holding 2 auto-jumbles during the year. I think the first was on the 12th May and I see the second is on the 29th Sept, a week after their Sept breakfast meet. smile

It's Matching Green and the Maldon car show tomorrow. I've been to the Maldon one twice and it was the show of the year for me both times, but I've never been to Matching Green, does anyone have experience of both and have a view on which is best?
