The BVAC committee are delighted to announce plans for the 2023 BVAC Classic, at Thirlestane Castle, in the beautiful Scottish Borders.

Following last year’s Sir Jackie Stewart Classic and 50-year BVAC anniversary celebrations, the show will return to the more traditional BVAC Classic format, on 18th June 2023, which also happens to be Father’s Day.

We anticipate that the event will once again attract a wonderful display of 1,000 veteran, vintage and classic cars as well as vintage truck, military vehicle and classic motorcycle displays, for those who prefer two wheels! 2023 also marks a number of special automotive birthday milestones and as such, the show looks forward to celebrating a selection of anniversary marks.

Beyond the extensive automotive displays, there will be plenty for all the family to see and do. There will a retail area, Artisan food and drink hall, children’s play area and activities, arena stunt display’s, pipe band shows and plenty of wonderful food and drink vendors to keep visitors fuelled throughout the day!

In addition, the Sporting Bears will be in attendance, offering visitors the chance to enjoy ’dream rides’ in their fabulous range of exotic cars, in exchange for a modest donation to their children’s charity.

New for this year will be the introduction of a live rally display, meaning visitors will be able to enjoy the wonderful sight and sound of live motorsport action. More details will be announced on this very soon!

For the first time, BVAC Classic visitors can purchase tickets in advance and grab themselves a bargain with a special advanced ticket price of £10, available to visitors who purchase before 31st May 2023. Under 16’s can enjoy free show access and tickets will also be available to purchase on the day, for £15. Well behaved dogs will also be welcome! The show gates will open at 11am and the event will close at 5pm.
