A Family Guide to… The Regent Street Motor Show
From Piccadilly Circus to Oxford Circus, the capital’s world-famous shopping street will be closed to through traffic so it can, once again, host the annual Regent Street Motor Show: the UK’s largest free-to-view motoring extravaganza.
Last year, a record 400,000 visitors, both young and old, were able to pore over a huge variety of mouth-watering machinery embracing everything from motoring’s pioneers to the latest supercars.
As well as being able to see over 300 cars on display, this year’s event has been made all the more family friendly with the addition of entertainment from West End Kids, the UK’s best known musical theatre song and dance troupe. In particular, they’ll be performing a brand new Motor Medley alongside members of the WEK:Training companies, forming a 100-strong ensemble! At the 2013 Show the troupe had the great privilege of performing on a 1903 Daimler 14hp Tonneau Tourer. Will they be able to trump this in 2014?? Come along to the show to find out!!
Aside from this excitement, the range of automobiles on show is second-to-none, spanning 125 years of motoring from the earliest 19th Century veterans to the 21st Century cars of the future. There’ll also be exhibits from leading car manufacturers including Morgan, Renault, Tesla, BMW, Mini and Infiniti. The 2014 show will even feature celebrations of the 911 Turbo and the Mustang, along with a live action zone and a very special announcement for all motorbike fans worldwide…!
There will also be 100 veteran cars on display, all ready for the annual Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, which starts from nearby Hyde Park the next day. The veteran motorcars, all built before 1905, will be taking part in the prestigious EFG International Concours d’Elegance and hoping to take overall honours ahead of the 60-mile trial to the coast.
First held in 2005, the Regent Street Motor Show attracts a large number of manufacturers keen to display their newest products to an audience made up of enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike.
