What’s on

Just like the first show, Rustival’s main motto is ‘Clapped out to concours – if it has got wheels it is welcome’ so whether you’re in a brand-new car, a shiny classic, a commercial vehicle, camper, a three wheeler or a bike, you are welcome and we would love you to join us.  

There are no age limits (upper or lower!), you don’t need a shiny car to get in, if you love driving it or riding it, we’d love to see it.  

Traders, sellers and parts suppliers are very welcome to trade at this event, please contact our team for more information on this by emailing hello@rustival.co.uk
