GNCCS 2021 information

GNCCS Cancelled

Following the government announcement that the final stages of lockdown easing are to be delayed until 19th July, we are sad to announce the cancellation of this year's Great North Classic Car Show which was to take place on 3rd July 2021. Whilst we find this truly disappointing after so many months of planning, as show organisers we have always been mindful that the event should only occur if safe to do so relative to the ongoing Covid-19 health crisis. We feel the continued strict control of large outdoor gatherings in the region is justified while the government's vaccination programme continues amidst the increasing number of Covid-19 cases now largely attributed to the Delta variant. There is no justification for any event which potentially places the health of the North East people at unnecessary risk or adds to the pressure of hard-working NHS staff in the region.

Many thanks to all those who have supported GNCCS as exhibitors and visitors having purchased tickets in advance, full refunds will be automatically made through Eventbrite in the coming days.

We look forward to hopefully seeing you all again here at Beamish Red Row safely in the future.

Take care, The GNCCS team.

Free Parking

Car parking is FREE on the day.

There are two public car parks, and the entrance and car park you use will depend on the direction you approach the show from (see below). Parking marshals will be on hand to direct you from the entrance to your space.

NOTE: Disabled drivers can approach the show from either direction.


Classic Car Parking

There will be a separate car park for those who arrive in a classic car but are not part of the official show, though this section is entirely voluntary of course. Anyone wishing to use this car park can approach the show from either direction, but you will need to inform the gate marshal at entry so that they can point you in the right direction.


Food & drink

Food & drink are available throughout the day from Black Horse Beamish Gastro Pub, or the Orchard Marque, both on-site and both with indoor and outdoor areas. Other food and drink concessions will also be available around the site.

Exhibitor Entry Times

Entry for exhibitors is between 07:30 and 10:00. An email will be sent to all exhibitors the week before the show with more information.
