Classic Cars on the Prom

Blue, black and turquoise classic cars in a row with the BIC in the background.


Classic Cars On The Prom takes place once a month from November through until May and features an ever changing line up of vehicles dating from 1915 up to pre-September 2001 which means that all the vehicles now have to be prior to the new style "51" registration plate (ie AB52 XYZ).

The event supports local charities/benefactors such as; RNLI, Beach Lifeguards of Poole Bay, Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulances and Langside School for Disabled Children.

The event takes place on West Overcliff Promenade, running up alongside the Bournemouth International Centre.

Admission is free for eligible vehicles, those dating between 1915 and before September 2001, and you can turn up at anytime between 11am and 2pm.

Please note that space is limited so it’s on a first come, first served basis. That said, the display normally attracts between 70 and 130 vehicles each week.

The event is subject to weather and other seafront activities.

We provide a club for like minded classic car enthusiasts in Bournemouth and surrounding areas to display their lovingly preserved and cared for motoring treasures.

Please note that you can keep up to date by visiting our Facebook page.
