Dozens of vintage motors will be steering towards Glansevern Hall and Gardens on Saturday 1st June, for the first ever Welshpool Classic Car Festival.

Classic car enthusiasts have been busy polishing up their prized vehicles to exhibit at this charity event in a picturesque rural setting. More than 60 vehicles are already booked with many more expected on the day to raise money.

Visitors can come along to view the array of motoring heritage, craft and vintage stalls, and food and drink outlets at the stunning 25-acre estate from 10am–4pm. Entry for exhibitors or spectators is £5 per car which includes all passengers.

Organiser and classic car enthusiast Alan Crowe has planned many charity events in the past but is looking forward to his first vintage car festival at Glansevern Hall.

“I just love old cars. They are beautiful and built to last. The festival will be a wonderful celebration of a wide range of classic from 1920s models to cars that are just a decade old. All cars of interest are welcome. We’ve got MGs, Minis, Saabs, Morgans and an Aston Martin to name just a few. It’s going to be a fabulous day out for al the family, with craft stalls, food, and a tombola,” he said.

“We are delighted to be supporting Hope House children’s hospices, alongside other local charities. My sister works at the charity shop in Welshpool, and I’m proud to be raising money to help local children and their families.”

Fundraiser Bekki Fardoe thanked Alan and all the vintage car owners giving up their time to share their splendid vehicles and raise money. 

She said: “What a wonderful celebration of classic cars, set in a stunning location. Thank you to Alan and the many motor owners taking part, and to supporters and families coming along to enjoy a day out. Money raised for Hope House and Tŷ Gobaith will be used to care for and support children with life-threatening conditions and their families, by providing services including specialist respite care.”
