East Midlands Events

I do hope you are able to join us at many of the events listed.

I try to give as much variety as possible with the events, and sometimes add new ones.

If you are unable to attend an event in your classic car, you will be welcome to attend in a modern car. Depending on the event, you may have to park your modern car in the visitors parking area, and then come through and join us.

 The listing was correct when produced in February 2019.

We meet on the last Wednesday of every month about 8pm at The Plough, Main Street, Normanton on Soar, LE12 5HB and you will be most welcome.

Andrew Wainwright, DLOC East Midlands Region
