Classic Cars on the Prom/Quomps

Organiser, Ashley, with his light blue car, Doris.


Classic Cars On The Prom/Quomps 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.

This summer/autumn, the dates for the Quomps are, Sunday's from 10am until 5pm:-

3 September Classic Cars On The Quay (Christchurch Quay)

10 September Classic Cars On The Quay (Christchurch Quay)

24 September Classic Cars On The Quay (Christchurch Quay)

8 October Classic Cars On The Quay (Christchurch Quay)

All vehicles must have been registered before September 2001 & come along with an oil drip tray & a £2 coin to gain admittance

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/quay activities.

We provide a club for like minded classic car enthusiasts in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole 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.
