Organisers made the call to postpone this year’s showcase after Buckingham Palace announced the death of Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September.

Chearsley Village Classic and Vintage Fun Day was slated to take place just three days later, but was cancelled as a mark of respect to the late monarch.

A spokesperson said the event wouldn’t take place during the 10-day mourning period following the Queen’s passing “in recognition of her outstanding service to the nation over so many years”.

Once again, the car show will take place at Chearsley Cricket Ground on Winchendon Road, parking is also free for visitors.

Typically, the event is populated by a series of stallholders and arts and crafts shows is often among the entertainment events lined up for youngsters.

Also accompanying this year’s main attraction was numerous live musical acts.

If the event had gone ahead this month, organisers had confirmed a Gin and Pimms Tent, barbeque, and other food trucks from local organisations.

Each year one vehicle is named the Best in Show following a public vote.

At previous events real ale tents and a Howes fish and chips van have been set up.

Homemade cakes and tea and coffee stalls are typically set up for guests to enjoy.

Vehicles can still be registered for the event online.

Money raised from the free bonanza goes towards supporting the local cricket club.

Specifically, funds raised will be used to help out the people running the junior cricket teams at the Aylesbury Vale sporting institution.
