The Stow Motor Show will return after a four-year wait.

Having been hampered by Covid, the bi-annual show will return on Saturday July 9.

Organisers say there will be a “seemingly endless” list of attractions, as well as food, drink, and music throughout the day.

Chairman of the newly-formed Stow Motor Club, Ben Eddolls, said: “At last, Stow Motor Show is returning after four long years, two of which disappeared under the covid cloud, not only is it back but it promises to be better than ever!

“Although years have passed, the motor enthusiasts of Stow and the local area have not only been adjusting tappets and polishing brightwork but have also formed the Stow Motor Club, with the aim of organising events and trips throughout the year culminating in the bi-annual Motor Show."

He added: “Of course the real stars of the event will be the exhibitors ranging from farm tractors to lorries, motorcycles to military equipment, and of course cars of all persuasion, even electric, maybe steam!

“The primary reason for the Show is to hold a fun event for local motor enthusiasts, the people of Stow and its visitors, with surplus funds shared to local charities.”

The 2022 free event will be held on the Queen Elizabeth II Field, also known as the Cricket Field, off the B4068, with parking available nearby.

Also taking place will be a demonstration of a road traffic accident by the local fire service team and live music performed by a brass band.

Funding for the Motor Show has come in the form of a Build Back Better grant from Gloucestershire County Council, and an additional grant from Stow Town Council.

The last event, in 2018, raised over £3,000 for local charities.

During the pandemic, the newly formed Stow Motor Club organised zoom meetings and various outings, including trips to the Morgan Motor factory in Malvern and Caffeine and Machine in Ettington.
