Previously held on Walmer Green, the show will this year be held at Betteshanger Country Park, with thousands of people expected to attend.

An array of classic vehicles will be on display, including the Aston Martin Owners Club Area 7.

English rock bank Toploader will perform, while other highlights will include bus rides, retro stalls children’s rides and entertainment, refreshments and much more.

Chris West, event organiser, said it is not possible to return the show to Walmer Green this year.

He said: "Some people are disappointed the show will not be on Walmer Green.

"From 2009 to 2019 the Deal Classic Motor Show was on Walmer Green.

"In 2019 we had 1,027 classic vehicles, and an estimated 15,000 visitors throughout the day who had free entry to the event, as it was public open space.

"Due to Covid-19 the show didn't take place in 2020, and in 2021 we had to move the show to Betteshanger Park, due to the government restrictions in holding a public event in open spaces.

"This year we have not been able to secure the sponsorship we require to hold the show on Walmer Green, due to the current economic climate and local businesses are struggling.

"Betteshanger Park is now fully open with great attractions such as the Mining Museum and I am very pleased to be holding the Deal Classic Motor Show there."

The event is supporting the Miners History Museum and the RNLI Walmer Lifeboat.
