Description

Discover over 300 modern classic trucks at this unmissable show for truck fans.

This is the Retro Truck Show, bringing over 300 trucks from 1971 to 2001 together to create a fantastic display at the British Motor Museum. The show is one of the biggest in the calendar, dedicated to some of the most iconic truck manufacturers of them all including DAF, Scania and Volvo. We also welcome trucks from right across Europe including France, Belgium and the Netherlands, giving this event a fascinating continental flavour.

If you’re a truck owner, you won’t find a better excuse for a weekend trucking holiday, or a better chance to catch up with friends and like minded fans of these classic big rigs. For those who would like to camp on site over the weekend, there will be access to a bar in the evenings.

This is a great event for families who are looking for something a bit different for their children. Not only can they look around the wide variety of trucks, but they can also explore the British Motor Museum, which is home to over 400 historic British cars. Entry to the Museum and Collections Centre is included in show tickets. There are plenty of places to refuel throughout the weekend, too, with burgers and ice creams available to purchase outside and hot meals, sweet treats and refreshments on sale in our Junction 12 Café.

Inside the Museum, you will also find an Indoor Model Show and trade area. Why not take a look and see if your favourite truck is in the selection of photos, models and brochures there?

Don’t take our word for it, here are what some of our recent visitors had to say:

– “I have attended the retro show a few times now and each year it has got better.”

– “Well presented, exhibits were spaced to allow easy access and the number of people attending meant there was room for everyone, it was lovely, not too busy, not too noisy, and plenty to see.”

– “I have been attending the retro show for the past 9 years, this year I entered my truck, which was a painless exercise. I always enjoy the retro show, as most of the trucks on show are from the era I drove in.”
