Bexhill 100 Classic and Custom Car Show

This show is our major fundraising event of the year, and is held annually on August Bank Holiday Monday.

Around 60 cars were present at the inaugural event held in 2005. Fast-forward to the present day, and we now regularly welcome in the region of 500 vehicles; an eclectic mixture of cars of all ages, Classic, American, Commercial, Custom & Modified, plus classic motorcycles and scooters.

Over 50 trade stalls are present selling items such as autojumble, classic car portraits, and of course our own Bexhill 100 regalia stand selling club-branded clothing and accessories, and a wide range of catering outlets ensure that those present are well fed and watered. 

To date, the proceeds of our annual shows have resulted in an incredible £156,000 being donated to charities as nominated and voted for by club members at our Annual General Meeting, and the 2023 show review below gives examples of such organisations who have benefited. 

2023 Show Review

 

The show was opened by The Mayor of Bexhill, Cllr. Lynn Brailsford. It was a fantastic day, and the weather was perfect. The Bexhill Lions provided cream teas, along with entertainment by Bexhill Radio, The Other Band, and a very popular dog show.

For the second year running an impressive £20,000 was raised, with £5,000 donated to each of the four chosen beneficiaries, they being:

Association of Carers

Bexhill, Hastings & Rother Fundraising Group for Guide Dogs

Royal British Legion, Mais House, Bexhill

RNLI Eastbourne Lifeboat

 

Seven vehicle categories are eligible for judging at the show, and this year's results were:

The show committee meetings start in February, and continue each month through to August. It will be appreciated that such events do not simply happen, but are as a result of all the hard work put in by the volunteers both on the day and in preparation running up to the show.

 

The 2023 event was a roaring success thanks to everyone who either participated or visited on the day; here's looking forward to this year's show.
