Stony Stratford Goes Classic

May 12, 2018

We’re more than just a shop that loves all things on two wheels, we also appreciate those on four wheels, especially the classics!

With less than a month to go before the 10th annual “Classic Stony” car show, we thought we would give you some information about the event. Sunday June 3 rd will see Stony Stratford host the Classic Stony car show in the Market Square, in Cofferidge Close and in the High Street (so we have a front row seat!).

The event runs from 9:30 am until 4 pm and is free to spectate but it is run in aid of Willen Hospice, who have two shops in Stony Stratford, so there are plenty of chances to donate to this worthy cause.

We’re not usually open on Sundays as we like to try and get out and enjoy the sunshine (where available), either on two wheels or treating the four-legged one to a wander through the countryside. However, we will be open on June 3rd, 9 am - 2 pm, enjoying all the sights of the classic cars right on our doorstep. We’ll be serving up your favourite caffeinated or not caffeinated drinks, as well as cakes and paninis. Remember you are more than welcome to bring in your four-legged friends too!

Back to the cars… we were lucky enough to have a vintage Porsche outside Twenty3c last year, we’re excited to see what we’ll get this year. Whether it’s an Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, MG, Mini, Rolls Royce or a Volkswagen that gets your motor running you’ll find it at the Classic Stony show. If you have a classic car (pre-1993) you can drive up and display it for visitors to enjoy, your car could even be on display outside our shop!

  

And if you’re more of a classic motorbike person, you’re covered at this show too! There are rows of classic motorbikes and even the odd modern supercar here and there to view/drool over. The roar of all those different engines can make your hair stand on end.

Whilst you’ll be able to view all the delights of the car show you can listen to live music throughout the day in the Market Square. Or why not go on one of the guided walks organised by Stony in Bloom? They’re holding two guided walks to show off the RHS gold-winning flower beds and more.

The history and community spirit held in Stony Stratford is on show at every one of these events, and it’s why we wouldn’t want our shop to be anywhere else.

We cannot wait until Classic Stony comes back on June 3rd, we hope to see you there.
