August Bank Holiday Monday

After a somewhat dull & soggy day last July 2018 the SADCASE Classic car club were forced into cancelling their main show of the year that is held on the Recreation Ground in Storrington, West Sussex.

After hearing this through our own car mad landowner, we at Ford Airfield came to the rescue offering the use of our facilities to re – stage the event. It was gratefully received, and the main event MK II was held on the August Bank Holiday Monday on the market and car boot sale area.

What a cracking event it turned out to be! The organisers pulled out all the stops and in not too many weeks managed to get a sunny day and over six hundred well-presented shiny Classic vehicles. These were of all shapes and engine sizes along with their enthusiastic owners proudly chatting to anyone & everyone who stopped to look at their particular prized asset.… It really was a fantastic sight to see on the airfield.

This year on the back of that success they will be returning for ‘The Big One’. It will be held on the same August Bank Holiday Monday, which is the 26th, and will start at 10am until 4pm this year for the general public (owners contact  and should be, as the show label says, bigger and better as they have had a whole 12 months for that great organising crew to put their heads together, come up with new ideas & provide a top day out for petrol heads! (and their families ha ha)

This is definitely one for the diaries even if cars aren’t your first love!

There are plenty of other things to do on the Bank Holiday Monday in the area of West Sussex if you want to make a day of it. The Arundel Festival has been running for 41 years! With street entertainment, music in the Jubilee Gardens and many other arts and traditional events. The Garden lovers amongst you will have to visit the Flower Festival at Steyning which is held at the Churches of St Andrew and St Cuthbert. It will be a fragrant feast of colour and it is free entry too! Or maybe a visit to Petworth House’s 700-acre estate and Deer Park which is a lovely landscaped stroll with plenty to see and do for the adults and children alike. Then of course there are the beaches & boy does West Sussex have some! There’s Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Goring, West Wittering, our local one Clymping & quite a few more that are all up to Blue Flag standard or have Seaside awards. We will still be holding our weekly Market and Car Boot sales on every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the year, come rain, shine, snow or tempest, but we love our Bank Holidays off 🙂 hence letting the SADCASE team work their magic!

Wherever you go or whatever you do we hope the sun shines bright for you!
