The Classic Car Drive In Weekend 2020

Dates: September 18th-20th, 2020

Time: 09:00am – 11:00pm

After a relatively unpredictable Summer, it’s time to welcome a new event into the classic calendar.

Classic car enthusiasts can finally be united for the Classic Car Drive In Weekend, hosted at Bicester Heritage from the 18th-20th September.

Marrying both iconic classic car films with static displays will make for an impressive celebratory event, alongside a range of car clubs, dealers, a live auction via Bonhams, parades and track demonstrations.

Whether you’re a Gone in 60 Seconds aficionado, collector or classic enthusiast - this isn’t an event to be missed!


Bicester Heritage has become a staple setting for classic car events. The beautiful grounds are dripping in history (such as the UK’s best-preserved WW2 Bomber Station) and act as a hub for a variety of automotive businesses.

Formerly RAF Bicester, the staggering 444-acre site has been conscientiously restored and safely secured for its new modern use. 


Upon purchasing a ticket, you are permitted to experience the ‘Classic Drive In’, where classic car films will be screened.

There will be up to six screenings a day, so visitors can choose from a selection of cult classics, Hollywood blockbusters or documentaries. In order to view, simply drive into the ‘Cinema’ area on-site before the film is due to start and enjoy!

Films include (but are not limited to):

  • Baby Driver
  • Fast and Furious 7
  • Gone in 60 Seconds
  • Le Mans ’66
  • The Italian Job


One of the season’s first live auctions will also be held by Bonhams’ Modern, Popular and Historic Motoring section of the well-known international auction house.

The MPH arm will offer both enthusiasts and collectors the experience to not only browse their affordable classic vehicle collection for purchase but they will also be offering their expertise for visitors to draw on.
