Frankie's Classic Car Fest with Vintage Market

438491_PCRS04_Email_Footer_350x200px_2019_FV3Not only a must on the car enthusiast calendar,  Frankie's Classic Car Fest is fun for the whole family. Come and join us at the home of Essex's motoring heritage Ford's Dunton Technical Centre in Laindon on Sunday 1st September. We can promise you a variety of vehicles from across the years that are sure to dazzle and amaze you, and with live entertainment on our Frankie stage, vintage market and street food, there will definitely be something for all of the family!

And for 2019, we have an extra event as part of the main show - for the 50th birthday of the iconic Ford Capri, we are hosting a special display of Capris on the Dunton Test Track.  Be sure to come and see these iconic Ford cars. We currently have over 130 Capri's registered to show and more than 275 cars in total!


PLEASE NOTE - we regret that dogs or other pets (other than assistance dogs) are NOT allowed on site. Also barbecues and gas appliances cannot be used within the Ford grounds. 

Want to get your business involved? We have some exciting and unique marketing opportunities including vintage market stall rental and corporate sponsorship. Click here for more information.

Pre-booking of display cars is strongly recommended (see below for online booking) as we expect to be very busy again this year. 

You can contact us either on 01708 771404 or at events@sfh.org.uk for more information.

Pre-booked cars only - entry is per car not per person (all occupants get free entry). If you are entering the Capri 50th display on the test track, please use the Ford Capri 50th birthday booking box, rather than the other categories.

At last year's National Motor Show at the NEC, in the awards from Classic & Sports Car Magazine, Frankie's Classic Car Fest was Highly Commended in the 'Contribution to Charity' section for the amount raised over seven years and in particular the involvement of the Daimler SP250 Owners Club, who are the mainstay of the marshalling and judging teams, a huge supporter of the hospice, for the show. We feel very proud of this award especially as it was against some tough competition!


438491_PCRS04_Email_Footer_350x200px_2019_FV3The Daimler SP250 Owners Club are the core of the ‘Car Team’ for Frankie’s Classic Car Fest and put in a huge amount of effort to make it a success.  They were shortlisted for the National Car Club Awards at the NEC on 23rd March, and despite some tough competition, took home the Best Car Club Contribution to Charity.

The award was presented to Alan Mason (pictured second from the right), representing the Hospice, by the sponsor Carole Nash Insurance, and the evening’s host Mike Brewer from ‘Wheeler Dealer’.

Advance booking closes on 18th August 2019.
