The Donkey Sanctuary Car Show is back for 2018! With 600 cars exhibiting last year, this year will see us continue to attract cars from different eras, bringing them together for a relaxed day of car conversation, live music, great food as well as the chance to explore the sanctuary and meet the donkeys.
An event for motoring enthusiasts and families alike, you can expect a whole host of interesting cars from Bond Bugs and Austin A30s to Porsche 911s and Toyota Supras. Complementing the cars will be a selection of motoring trade stands, and since our lunchtime live music was so popular last year, we will be extending the musical offering throughout the day. There will also be plenty of delicious food and refreshments available (including vegan and gluten free options) and a children’s area with go-karts and bouncy castles.
For those exhibiting and a bit of fun, we will be running the inaugural Car Show awards, which each exhibitor’s car or club will be entered into automatically. Expect to see award categories like ‘Best in show’, ‘Best car club’, ‘Organiser’s favourite’ and other sponsored prize categories.
The Donkey Sanctuary will be open as usual for you to meet plenty of friendly donkeys, explore our exciting new attractions, relax in our stunning new restaurant and visit the new Gift Shop for lots of donkey-design goodies.
£3 per adult including free prize draw, under 12’s are free. Free parking and dogs welcome on leads.
£5 per car exhibiting (payable in cash on entrance), with no additional charge for passengers. If you would like to display your pride and joy, please do register via one of the following ways:
A little different than last year, but still super easy to register and you will receive a confirmation code from us once you’ve registered.
Option 1: Email your name, car make, model and registration to email@example.com. Please do not Facebook message us your registration, they will not be accepted.
Option 2: Download the registration form and return to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 22 June 2018.
Single entries will be allowed on to the show field from 8:30am and need to be in position for the gates to open to the public at 10am.
Once you’ve completed option 1 or 2, we would love it if you posted a picture of your car on our Facebook event page. It’s important that you register using the options above so that we can ensure we have the correct amount of spaces designated, so please register before the deadline to avoid disappointment.
IMPORTANT: We will be shutting the exhibitor gates at 11am to ensure the public's safety. Also, due to the donkey’s sensitive ears, we can’t allow sound demos at this show.
Group and club entries
If you are considering attending with a car club or as a group, please email Chris Phillips at email@example.com to discuss your requirements and an arrival time. Please do not Facebook message us your registration, they will not be accepted.
To ensure smooth arrival for your club, we can take a pre-payment for spaces upfront and send the passes to an allocated member of admin. This helps us to get your club in to the show field and parked as quickly and safely as possible.
Deadline for registration is Friday 22 June 2018.
