Sunday 28 May 2017 - Lion Green


Eight great years...

" In 2009, I was invited by the Haslemere Festival to assemble a group of Classic Cars to display at the Donkey Derby, I ended up with about 40… this has grown to the amazing variety of well over 200 vehicles seen on Lion Green in 2015.

We now attract cars and traders from a wide area and with support from the Festival and sponsors we have been able to achieve a ‘vintage’ fete where arts and crafts meets farmers market, while the focus remains on classics spanning several generations.

Each year we seem to go from strength to strength with  Lion Green bulging with classic cars, crowds and cake in the afternoon!

It’s fantastic to see so many people enjoying the cars while relaxing in the sunshine listening to jazz, we’ve been able to provide free entertainment for the people of Haslemere while still raising money for the Haslemere Festival and helping to fund other events in the local community."

James Ewing


The Haslemere Classic Car Show and Tour has been running since 2009 and has attracted a great variety of classics from the turn of the 20th century to the early seventies, including most of the major marques and a number of more unusual and rare vehicles.

Each year we seem to attract a bigger audience coming from all over the South East of England. Over the years the tour has covered many miles through the beautiful local countryside surrounding the town. More and more of our entrants are dressing to ‘match’ their cars and taking place in our ‘Best Dressed’ and ‘People’s Choice’ competitions.
