After a hugely popular debut last summer, the Restoration and Classic Car Show returns to Birmingham NEC this weekend with over 500 magnificent classic cars, restoration projects and barn discoveries.

The event, taking place on Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29 at the NEC, boasts the UK’s largest collection of barn-find displays in association with Heritage Classic Car Insurance, around 100 classic club stands, Silverstone Auctions, restoration advice, live demos, workshops and expert tutorials – everything a classic car fan needs in one weekend.

The Restorer of the Year competition is back this year, with ten garage enthusiasts showing off their labours of love. The overall winner will be chosen by visitors to the Restoration and Classic Car Show.

On the Live Stage, there will be an all-star line-up of motoring celebrities, including Fifth Gear presenter and racing driver, Tiff Needell, Wheeler Dealers’ Mike Brewer, For The Love Of Cars’ Ant Anstead and star of Red Dwarf and motoring enthusiast Chris Barrie.

There will be an expansive  Autojumble and Classic Trader Village where restoration enthusiasts can browse more than 200 stands selling spare parts, spare, tools, and manuals to help you get your project back on track. You can also find some hidden treasures such as rare accessories, books, pictures, paintings, brochures, badges and more.

And if you want to take a break from the rust and the restorations, you can join the Sporting Bears Motor Club for its popular Dream Rides - a ten-mile passenger ride in one of the cars from the Dream Rides Garage in exchange for a donation to charity. You can hit the road in a British Sports classic or an Italian supercar, depending on your donation.

Ticket prices start from £12 in advance. To book tickets and for the latest updates, click here or call 0844 858 6758.
