The Malvern Festival of Transport will take place on 14th October, at the Three Counties Showground, in Malvern. For this year’s show, the organisers have combined the Malvern Mini Show, Malvern Classic Commercial Show, and the Malvern Motorcycle Show.
Last year, this show attracted over 80 trade stalls 40 classic commercials and 600 vehicles on display. In 2018, the organisers want to take the show to a whole new level, so that you, as a spectator can have an enjoyable time. Let’s see what the organisers have in store for you, in this year’s Malvern Festival of Transport:
One of the highlights of this event will be the vehicle concurs, which be the centre of attention for everyone who attends the show. All the vehicles at the show will be a part of the concurs. Commentating for this event is none other than Les Clayton, a man who has more than 20 years of experience providing interactive and friendly commentary, to keep the visitors of the show engaged.
Joining him will be several judges, who have tremendous amounts of experience in a variety of vehicles. They will be the ones who decide which vehicle walks away with the Pride of Ownership and Car of the Show trophies.
Food and beverages
There are numerous stalls who will provide meals to keep you full throughout the show. There is also a café at the venue if you want to sit and have a meal.
Malvern Motorcycle Show
At the Malvern Motorcycle Show, you get the opportunity to take a closer look at the number of classic and vintage motorbikes. Clubs such as 2 Stroke Club, VMCC, and Norton Owners Club will also be present, displaying their collection of motorbikes.
