PATINA - Festival for the Unpresentable

The PATINA Classic Car Show is a celebration of all our beloved unrestored classic and vintage cars. It is a festival for the unpresentable cars we love and drive regularly. This show is for the beautifully preserved cars that have never been restored, as well as regularly used classics that ooze with patina and character. Even those cars that are limping along and held together by hope and love are welcome.

WARNING: This is NOT a concourse event. There will be greasy engine bays. It is recommended you do not wear white linen. Instead, grab a pair of overalls and join the party in the beautiful setting of the grounds of Lullingstone Castle.

CALLING ALL CAR CLUBS! We would love to have your club at the show. Car club displays are free for up to 4 cars. There will be a prize for the Most Elaborate Picnic. Sign your club up here:

Submit your car to be one of the 150 displayed within the grounds. Submissions are now being accepted:

Show visitors will be encouraged to bring a blanket and hamper and have a relaxing picnic. Awards will be given for Best Preserved, Least Likely to Get Home, Most Elaborate Picnic, and more.
