The London Classic Car Show returns to Olympia in 2023

The London Classic Car Show is making a welcome return to prestigious Olympia in Kensington, West London in 2023.

Staged between 24-26 February and entering its ninth year, the capital’s premier celebration of automotive culture and history will again be the must-attend season-opener to the year’s flourishing classic car scene for all classic car owners, collectors, experts and enthusiasts.

Tickets go on sale from 10am on Thursday 24 November and those registering online and booking swiftly are offered a great value £5 discount on standard Adult Tickets.

Olympia is steeped in motoring history having hosted blue-riband automotive shows for more than a century. The spectacular Grand Hall was home to the International Motor Exhibition from 1905 to 1936 and has accommodated an array of similarly distinguished car-themed events ever since… most recently The London Classic Car Show in 2020.

With restrictions on indoor venues, the show was forced to innovate with an inspired move to a temporary new outdoor venue in Syon Park in June 2021… but now returns to its traditional February fixture under Olympia’s magnificent, Victorian, barrel-vaulted roof.

“We are thrilled to be bringing The London Classic Car Show back to Olympia,” confirmed Kate Woodley, Show Director at organiser Brand Events. “It’s a truly spectacular venue which provides us with the perfect backdrop for wonderful displays of iconic cars from throughout the ages. Olympia already feels like our spiritual home, and we have a truly great show planned for 2023.”

As ever, The London Classic Car Show will boast hundreds of the world’s finest cars from yesteryear as well as celebrity interviews on the main stage plus a host of other dazzling highlights.

Two special displays have already been confirmed for February – the first will honour 60 years of the evergreen Porsche 911, the second will put the spotlight on Barn-Finds and Survivors.

The former will feature an eye-catching collection of evolving 911s from the original air-cooled Type 901 launched at the Frankfurt Show in 1963 right up to the latest Type 992 supercars.

The latter will provide a fascinating insight into the uncovering and restoration of recently discovered relics – the hidden motoring treasures we hanker after and the subtle differences, at first blush, between ‘worth the effort’, ‘worth a fortune’ and ‘worth leaving alone’.

A number of equally outstanding features will be announced in the coming weeks. These will include dedicated displays to excite motor sport fans as well as exhibits and hotly debated panel discussions on the re-engineering of existing classics with electric propulsion for the future ­– a topical and hotly debated subject!

Offering exceptional value, adult admission in advance is priced at just £25 (plus booking fees) and a Limited Early Bird Offer provides those registering online and buying before midnight on 27 November with a significant £5 discount.

Full details of all ticket buying options – as well as the latest show news – can be found on the official website.
