Took another trip to Newbury but not the racecourse as per the West Berkshire Classic Car Show. This time the venue was the Newbury Showground for the annual RetroFestival. The festival is more than a car show with lots of stalls, music and other activities to keep visitors busy. The attendance seemed a little down not really surprising due to the uncomfortable heatwave conditions and possibly the rise in fuel prices and the current increased cost of living. Nonetheless it was a really enjoyable even as always, with lots of American vehicles on display as you can see.

Is this show put together by the same couple [the Palmers] putting on the Spring Vehicle Meet in April at Newbury Showground?
I have not been active in the vintage car hobby/business in England for a dozen years or more, and I am astounded at the number and variety of “Yank Tanks” in the country today, especially with the high fuel costs!
Hi Bill, no this is a company that runs 2 Retro Festivals, one at Newbury and another at Newark. The Newbury one I believe was originally at Waltham
