All the fun of the fair

First staged in 1990, The Classic has an unrivalled heritage and this year – for the first time in its own glittering history – the world’s biggest classic motor racing festival will be revving up to close-out the summer holidays in spectacular style at Silverstone (26-28 August).

Ensuring the award-winning extravaganza takes full advantage of its exciting new Bank Holiday date, the pace-setting three-day festival will feature not only a packed programme of 20 epic races covering all of motor sport’s golden eras but also more fun-fuelled entertainment for the entire family to enjoy than ever before. 

And with free admission for accompanied children aged under 16,  The Classic is fast becoming the perfect destination for a memorable Bank Holiday staycation. Not only will there be fabulous automotive nostalgia to enjoy on and off the track, but there’s also a packed line-up of attractions and activities over three amazing days for younger members of the family to enjoy too.

There are stunt shows in the Shift & Drift Zone, race simulators and a pit-stop challenge in the Adrenaline Zone, crazy golf and fun fair rides on the buzzing Village Green, a Football Skills Zone courtesy of event partner, Yokohama, and it’s all provided within the ticket price. There’s also the chance for those aged between 10 and 17 years old to get behind the wheel for the very first time with the ever-popular Young Driver* experience. 

Guaranteeing there’s lots for everyone to savour at Silverstone, The Classic this year also boasts three evenings of live music from chart-toppers that include Sister Sledge, Gabrielle and Rick Astley as well as a mouth-watering Foodie Fest, the Switch Live feature powered by myenergi, and there’s a Shopping Village too.

The new Foodie Fest will serve up cooking masterclasses and Q&As from top chefs, the very first ‘pop-up’ outlet from Jeremy Clarkson’s iconic Diddly Squat Farm Shop, and there will also be a spotlight on local producers with an artisan market.
