Salisbury Car Fest, Sunday 3rd May 2020

Post by Honkytonk » Tue Feb 11, 2020 3:00 pm

I've been contacted by Salisbury Council Events Team inviting us back to Salisbury Car Fest. This was good fun last year, a good variety of rare metal on display and the council were happy to have engines revved in the city centre. Being May rather than September, I have no idea if the weather is going to be better or worse than last year, but last year was so nice I got sunburnt. :thumleft:

Some of the benefits of this particular show being;

A. It's in the middle of town (so feel free to come along, park up, and go enjoy the numerous alehouses sights Salisbury has to offer whilst other clubmembers keep an eye on your car)
B. It's completely Free
C. There's live music as well as non-extortionate food and drink options in case you have kids/disinterested other halves in tow
D. Don't want to bring the 8? Great! One of the good things about the show was the variety of cars on display, so bring something different if you'd like. PeteH brought his beautiful SL out last year and it got more attention than my car (Not that I'm jealous or anything...)

Let me know if you're interested, I'll probably have a chat with the council before the end of next week to let them know how many we're bringing. I'm also more than happy to take a step back and let the proper events team organise this, as it was a bit last minute last year.

Little bit of bumpage for this as I'll talk to council by end of week. Please post if you are even thinking of attending so I can try and get us a decent sized pitch.

Bloody committee! Meeting and such! You'd think they're trying to actively improve the club!

Let me know what the curtains are like.

I'll tell the council 4, that's how many we scrounged up last year last minute so I imagine closer to the time we can probably do that again.

Might be tempted by this but is too far in the future to be definitive; but would love to do it.
