An estimated 15,000 visitors came to the Herne Bay Motor Show on 22 June 2014. With a wonderful selection of classic vehicles and great music, made this one of Classic Music & Motors most successful events to date. This is what some of the exhibitors said:

Stan White What can I say…  The Herne Bay show had it all, and the weather was fantastic! Initially I was not sure that I liked the new layout along the sea front, but within a few minutes of arriving, the advantages became clear.I hope you get lots of positive feedback, I certainly heard many appreciative comments. A great day out, well done for all your hard work.

JEC Kent Region: Just a quick email to say a huge well done and thank you for yesterday’s show at Herne Bay. We had huge numbers of visitors to our stand with lots of questions about the cars and I think we even picked up a few more members too. The bands were excellent, but in particular, XYZ. The music they played and sang was outstanding. The shows that you and your team organise are second to none. They are probably the best there is.

Herne Bay Sports & Classic Car Club: Let me say how wonderful the Classic Car Show was yesterday with all the attractions, superb food and entertainment.  Definitely the best so far and wonderful for the town.  Thank you so much for all your hard work.
