Belgravia Classic Car Show Coming to London

By Paul Joseph

This weekend, the well-heeled London district of Belgravia will host its very first Classic Car Show, showcasing some of the finest and most sought-after motorcars in the world, alongside live music, food and drinks stalls, and entertainment throughout.

Taking place at Belgrave Square Garden, a pristine 4.5-acre private garden usually only accessible to residents of the square, the event will invite guests to discover a bygone but still much cherished age of engineering, design, art and history.

Among the 100 classic cars on display will be the Ferrari 250SWB, Rolls Royce P 1 and McLaren 650, all of which have gone down in the annals of history among automobile enthusiasts across the world.

A number of the cars on show will be exhibited by members of the famous ‘96 Club’, founded by Michael Scott, who began the club as a way to enjoy the delights of driving classic cars without any restrictions. The club soon became an exclusive driving community, with invitation only membership that has often included a few famous faces.

The appeal for classic cars continues to thrive today, with their nostalgia and character still exciting car lovers around the world. The attraction is often in their distinctive style - the identifiable 50s Chevy Bel Air, for example, with its winged tail light design or the curved edges of the 57 Atlantic Bugatti.

During the day guests will be able to enjoy live music and entertainment, with food and beverages available to purchase, all within the beautifully restored garden dating back to 1867.
