Road closures force new show dates
A classic car show organisation has been forced to change the date of two of its events after being informed – at short notice – of an important road closure.
‘Highways England have informed us that the M4 at Junction 13 will be closed on the date of one of our Newbury Showground events,’ says Kate Bowyer of Mark Woodward Classic Events. ‘ This is out of our control and will affect the show considerably, so we have had to change the date. ‘
As a result, the 4x4 & Vintage Spares Day at Newbury Showground has moved from the previously advertised 2 April to Sunday 26 March.
‘We have also had to move our Ripon 4 x 4 Spares Day and Land Rover Autojumble which takes place at Ripon Racecourse to 19 March to avoid the new 26 March Newbury date,’ says Kate.
The company hosts more than 25 major shows and autojumbles annually. ] www.markwoodwardclassicevents.com
