Sherborne Classic & Supercars Show 2021 – Cancelled
The organising committee has decided that to run the show in 2021, under current scientific expectations for Covid 19, would be the wrong thing to do.
We have taken this decision following an in depth investigation and a subsequent view upon the possible health risk to our own volunteering staff during the many months of preparation, as well as for our team, Sherborne Castle staff and all exhibitors, traders and the public on the day of the show; some 15,000 people.
The decision to cancel the show has to be made now at the beginning of the planning process, as exponentially increasing costs as the show date approaches severely impact our ability to donate to charity, which is the purpose of the show.
The team are however as keen as ever to continue the show in 2022 and through future years, and given that through our sponsors, exhibitors and visitors support we have been able to donate circa £250,000 over the past five years, we view the show as an exceptionally good way to raise funds for charities.
We are planning now for return of the show at Sherborne Castle, Dorset on Sunday 17th July 2022.

To fulfill, in part, our charitable aims our CIO has decided that any funds received this year will be donated to the Yeovil District Hospital Appeal.
So, following our previous email of 19th March, in which we offered a concession to refund your non-refundable booking fee, please be aware that if we do not hear from you by 18th April we will donate your money to this appeal.
Thank you for your booking for 2020 show.
Following our previous email of 19th March please be aware that if we do not hear from you by 18th April your stand booking and fee will be held for the 2021 show.

Notice from the Organising Team
It is with great regret that we to have inform you that our 17th annual Classic & Supercars Show, scheduled for 19th July at Sherborne Castle, is cancelled.
This difficult decision has been taken by our organising committee in the light of recent Government briefings and our wish to insure the wellbeing of all our Sponsors, Exhibitors, Traders, Suppliers, Public Visitors and our own volunteer staff many of who are over 70 years old and therefore in the high risk sector.
We are immensely grateful and indebted to you for your support, the next show is now scheduled for Sunday 18th July 2021.
Arrangements for this year’s show were well underway and it is our intention to run with exactly the same features in 2021. As you know the show is held for the benefit of local charities and we are extremely concerned that in protecting everybody, including yourselves and our staff, the decision to cancel will have serious impact on those selected for donations in 2020.
Once again thank-you for your continued support of our show.
We hope that your families and colleagues remain in good health at this troubling time,
The Organising team at Sherborne Classic and Supercars Ltd
