Cumbria Auto Show FAQs


Q. When is the next Show?

The 2018 Show is on Sunday 1st July 2018 from 11.00 am.

Q. I'm in a Car Club, what is the best way to get my tickets?

The only way to park together as a club is to buy advanced tickets by June 16th 2018, simply add your club name into the box on the ticket page. This allows us time to make sure all clubs have the space needed allocated correctly.

Q. I'm a Car Club Organiser, can I buy tickets in bulk?

Yes. Although the easiest way is to let your members simply add your club name into the box on the ticket screen. This means your members will receive their tickets directly. Advance ticket sales close on the 16th June 2018.

Q. Can we have a Club Stand at the show and buy tickets at the gate on Show day?

No, having listened to club feedback from 2017 we know that as clubs you want space allocated out. We simply can't do this without knowing numbers. On the day entry will be single entries, so if you arrive together and haven't pre booked, we will park you together if we can but you would miss out on the prebooking discount . 

Q. I'm not in a Club, can I show my car?

Of course! Buy a ticket and come along as a single entry!

Q. How much is entry on Show day?

Admission is £7.50 per person at the entry gate but remember kids under 16 years go free when accompanied by a paying adult.
