Warlingham car show wows thousands in the sunshine

1950s Rover 2

The season of community festivals and fairs is well under way, and events staged this weekend just gone got lucky with probably the best weather of our damp summer so far.

The organisers of the annual vintage car show staged at Warlingham rugby club, and their cancer charity cause, therefore benefited massively as dozens of car owners and thousands of people turned out to enjoy the spectacle.

PimpedIt was not just serious veteran, vintage or classic cars on display, but some vehicles at the show had undergone some serious re-working by their devoted owners.

Morris dancers

There were plenty of other activities to delight and entertain the visitors, including a local Morris dancing troupe, who rattled their bells and waved their hankies throughout the afternoon.

Overview of car show

The Morris dancers – they were definitely not Morris Minors – food and drink stalls and other displays all contributed to an impressive scene spread right across the rugby club’s five pitches at Hamsey Green, off Limpsfield Road, in the summer sunshine.

This was the second year of the Warlingham vintage car show, and the huge numbers attending ought to guarantee that a third staging will happen in 2017.
