27th Raby Castle: Classic in the Park

Sunday 12th August 2018 - Exhibit Bookings   Club Exhibit Registrations

Raby Castle, Staindrop, Co Durham, DL2 3AH

After the success of June’s inaugural show at our new, larger showground venue, Mark Woodward brings hundreds of classics to Raby Castle for a show-stopping second visit.

Bring the family for holiday fun, as high summer hits County Durham.  For 2018 the showground has been relocated right next to magnificent Raby Castle itself.

Home to Lord Barnard, Raby is one of England’s finest medieval castles, with towers, battlements and a vivid history spanning over 1,000 years.  Let the kids work off summer holiday energy exploring walled gardens, lakeside, and acres of parkland.  Enjoy the newly-refurbished restaurant and food-court, serving fresh local produce and afternoon teas.  With picnic and outdoor seating, and easily reached just off the A1M, Raby’s got everything for a fabulous day out. 

Hundreds of classic cars, bikes, steam engines, buses, trucks, vans and tractors will be on display across the deer park and now right up on the historic castle terrace itself. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to photograph classic cars against the dramatic backdrop of the castle portcullis.  See displays and commentary in the new arena across the day.   The bigger showground will be packed with club stands, displays and trade stands plus the famous auto-jumble.  Show admission includes full access to the park and gardens, plus castle terrace, tea-room, gift shop and horse-carriage museum.  With separate castle admission also available, enjoy a memorable day in the summer sun.
