From rusty wrecks to stunning cars, the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show 2017 at Birmingham’s NEC from 31 March – 2 April, is even bigger and better this year as it’s grown from a two-day show to three!

With over 1000 classic cars on display, the UK’s biggest display of barn finds with over 25 discoveries on show, 130 car clubs, motoring TV celebrities, expert advice, live demonstrations and more, it’s spring’s best classic car show!

Why not take a charity Dream Ride with our friends from Sporting Bears, experience the magnificently restored cars in the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership display, or purchase an original from spring’s biggest Auotjumble or from the huge selection at Classic Car Auctions?

Tickets are now on sale! For more information, ticket prices and booking details visit
