Regarded as one of the UK’s biggest one-day outdoor car shows, the Peter James Insurance Bromley Pageant of Motoring will return on June 17 for its 37th year.

This year, more than 3000 classic vehicle enthusiasts are expected to make the annual pilgrimage to Norman Park in Hayes Lane, to display their pride and joy.

Expected at the show are classic commercials, military vehicles, cherished classics and everything in between.

Set to be stacked out with fans of the popular marques coming together from Vauxhalls and Fords to MGs and Triumphs, 2018’s Pageant will feature special anniversary display stands for the Ford Escort and British Leyland.

There will also be special celebrity guests joining the day’s fun, with the presenters of the popular Quest TV show Goblin Works Garage and ex Top Gear presenter and local Bromley resident Sue Baker.

The celebrities will be around the show meeting fans and answering questions.

This year, Bromley Pageant falls on Father’s Day, so organisers will be celebrating with a very special automotive ‘father, son’ display, bringing together some of today’s finest cars and their original forefather.

The show wouldn’t be complete without some favourite classic car magazines and Peter James Insurance in attendance, and this year they’ll be joining together to create one super stand for visitors to enjoy.

Kelsey Media will not only be bringing along the latest issues of their top selling classic magazines and limited edition Bromley Pageant merchandise, they’ll also be joined by editor of Classics Monthly Iain Wakefield, along with a whole host of feature cars.

Peter James said: “The PJI and Kelsey teams have got a whopper of a stand in store for show-goers this year – it’s the place to come to pick up your free show guide, get hold of some fantastic merchandise and exclusive magazine offers, chat to our team and admire an array of rare and modern classics.”

Tickets are on sale now, with discount available for those booking in advance before midnight Saturday June 16.
