NEC Restoration Show

3rd March 2021

Cancelled for 2021: Practical Classics Restoration Show, NEC Birmingham

Important update regarding the show


As a consequence of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, will now be postponed to 18th-20th March 2022

Everyone involved in putting the show together is extremely disappointed that the ultimate restoration experience was not brought to the community in 2020. However, the health and well-being of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is of the upmost importance. 

We have put all our efforts into delivering an extra special restoration show in 2021 and a fantastic meeting of the community for our flagship event, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, in November. Clarion Events is working with other event organisers, venues and government to develop guidelines on how to deliver the best versions of our events while ensuring the health and safety of all involved. We will update you further on the measures we are putting in place in due course.
