Audlem Festival of Transport
This annual one day car show returns for 2021!
Those who attended our 40th AGM may recall attending this show on the Sunday of that weekend. Well if you are in the area (or can drive to South Cheshire on the day) you are welcome to attend.
To take part with your car, you must pre-register by filling in the online entry form at this website -
https://www.audlem-aset.org/events/transport-festival.html — it is free to take part!
You can of course visit the show on the day — but just be aware that parking in the village is tricky when there is a big event on such as this. As a spectator the best advice is to arrive early and follow the parking signs!
For those taking part in the main event — the cars congregate on the village green at Hankelow where the vehicle owners have plenty of chance to get a coffee and view the assembled machinery before the parade heads off to Audlem. The route between the villages is closed to the public and regular traffic. The convoy of classic vehicles pass through the lanes and into the village of Audlem where an enthusiastic crowd lines the streets cheering the procession. At the Church there is a running commentary on the cars as they arrive by a very knowledgeable local expert.
On arrival you are directed to park on the playing fields. There are side stalls and food facilities — plus usually a live band. Down by the canal there is a display of historic narrowboats plus sea shanty singing in the Shroppie Fly pub!
Upon lining up on the playing field there is plenty of opportunity to further view the cars, visit the stalls, listen to the live music or wander down to the canal to see the display of historic narrowboats which attend at the same weekend. The scenic village has various pubs and cafes open serving food and teas.
A fantastic event in a friendly village atmosphere and highly recommended.
Spaces are getting booked up — so don't leave it too long if you intend to join in.
