The hugely popular free Stratford Festival of Motoring 2015 will accelerate into action in Stratford on Avon town centre on Sunday 3rd and Bank Holiday Monday 4th May.  This unique event is one of the few times in a year where the streets of Stratford are closed, creating a fun family atmosphere.

The historic town centre streets will be filled with over 300 high performance motors and classic cars.  This will be supplemented by invited vehicles from organisations such as the Motor Heritage Centre Gaydon and the Auto Adrenalin Club.  As the unique cars, including stunning supercars and vintage classics, return to town after their scenic drives, there will be a Lap of Honour through the town between 930 and midday.

Contributing towards the free fun family friendly atmosphere will be live music from The Rocking Dinosaurs and The Voice participant Karl Loxley, street entertainers and more.  The cars will spread as far as the Bancroft Gardens and there will be a lively market.

The family area will be full of things for children to do, whether they prefer action with Go karting, the Bouncy Castle, a climbing wall or quieter art activitiesEmergency services vehicles will be on view for the kids to clamber in too!  What child doesn’t love a fire engine?!  Take part in the children’s free Treasure Hunt, in the Family Area at Rother Market, for a chance to win some cool prizes such as family tickets to the Stratford Butterfly Farm and the Creaky Cauldron.

On Sunday 3rd May it is also The Children’s Book Day at Stratford Literary Festival.  It is held at The Arts House on Rother Street so a perfect match!  For more information go to
