Over 350 vehicles have been registered for the event which is free for all to attend.

A tribute to the late Fred Crawford

All money raised from the event is donated to the Chearsley Cricket Club Junior Section.

Vintage steam engines are being brought to the cricket ground as well.

This year is the 11th vintage car event held at the Chearsley venue.

At last year’s event a major tribute was paid to the late Fred Crawford who was instrumental in developing the free show into what it is today.

Speaking to The Bucks Herald ahead of last year’s event committee member, Andy Yorke said: “Our show is a little different from many others as we don’t have strict criteria for entrants, as long as they are interesting to the general public. We anticipate a wide range of classic and vintage vehicles attending, dating from the early 1900’s through to the current day.

“As well as large displays of Morris Minors and MGs, you’ll also be able to see Aston Martins, Ferraris, Porsches and many other incredible cars from around the world.

"We’ll also have commercial vehicles including customised trucks and vintage fire engines and military vehicles, as well as vintage motorcycles and modern custom trikes.”
