The Warlingham Rugby Club Classic Car & Bike Show started way back in the summer of 2014 with a few beers in the tent at another car show. An idea of getting a few cars together on a sunny Sunday afternoon to raise a few quid for charity gathered momentum and so it began!
Our second show was even busier with more car and bikes in attendance than the year before, the public coming in their thousands, we raised an amazing £7,500.
Our third show also raised £7,500, fourth £7,000, fifth £10,800, and with Coronavirus: Covid-19 preventing the sixth Car Show going ahead in 2020, we were delighted to be able to put the show on in 2021, raising nearly £8,240 for charities.
So, what is the show all about?
Our show is a light hearted affair where we hope you can all feel welcome, enjoy yourselves, stay all day and hopefully return the following year.
The public can come for a great family day out without paying the earth to get in. There's plenty for the whole family to see and do - not just cars and bikes, but live entertainment including music, dance displays, children's entertainment and a variety of stalls for your perusal. There's plenty of opportunity to sit down, relax and enjoy your day. We celebrate the winners of the different classic car and bike categories with a trophy presentation during the afternoon.
Everyone that helps with the Car Show are volunteers, either from the Rugby Club or the local community. Many of them contribute in various capacities in the months before each show in order for everything to be in place and ready for the actual day. On the day itself, and undisputedly recognisable in their bright orange shirts, the marshals help from very early in the morning to long after the show has finished. They have been praised by the drivers and public for welcoming everyone with smiley faces, clear directions, always happy to help, all with a view to making the day enjoyable for all.
We hope you have a great time at our show!

Our first show was an astounding success with more cars and bikes than we could have hoped for. The local community came out in force and supported the inaugural event raising over £4,000 for charity.
We even made the BBC News!
