We are deeply saddened with the death of Her Majesty the Queen and the shadow that is cast over the nation.
Having reviewed current Government guidance and with all due consideration we have decided, along with the event organisers and appropriate parties, to go ahead with the Concorde Classic Car Show this Sunday 11th September, as a mark of respect to Queen Elizabeth II’s dedication to charitable causes.
We will hold a minute silence at start of the show at 10am to pay our respects to her Majesty.
Honouring her memory will continue to inspire us all, and subject to further government guidance, we look forward to seeing you on Sunday 11th September at the Concorde Club, Eastleigh.
On Sunday 11 September, the Concorde Classics Car Show is returning to the Concorde Club in Eastleigh for its thirteenth year, in aid of Naomi House & Jacksplace.
The show is returning for the first time since before the lockdown in 2019 and will feature over 130 classic cars, a supercar display including Lamborghinis, Aston Martins and more. There will also be a Ferrari display, the opportunity to meet The Stig, a large Scalextric track, trade stands, plus a BBQ and various food and drink venders. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Movie Cars’, meaning attendees may spot Herbie, a Back to the Future Delorean, The Ghostbusters’ ‘Ectomobile’, the Austin Westminster from Heartbeat, the Cherry Bellair from Dark Shadows, a Top Gun motorbike replica and a James Bond Aston Martin DB5!
Sporting Bears, a charity made up of classic and sports car enthusiasts, will also be at the show, offering ‘Dream Rides’; giving attendees the chance of a ride in a car of their dreams in exchange for a donation to Naomi House & Jacksplace.
Concorde Classics Car Show Manager, Rob Heard, said:
We are so excited to be going back to a normal full show this year. We have a wide range of vehicles on display, from vintage right the way up to the most recent supercars. We have a TV and movie car display, alongside a large Ferrari Display and our popular Scalextric track. Guests may even meet the odd celebrity. The show is a fun day out for the whole family and has been described as ‘a garden party for car enthusiasts’.
We are proud to support Naomi House & Jacksplace and we realise the importance of raising as much money as possible for the vital work the hospices do. We are always looking at new ways to increase the funds we raise and every penny we make goes to the charity. It’s thanks to the support of our car owners, traders, advertisers, sponsors, and the public that we are able to support this brilliant charity. It really is a team effort by all.
Suzie Simmons, Head of Regional and Corporate Fundraising at Naomi House & Jacksplace, said:
We are delighted that the car show is back again this year after being unable to run since before the lockdown. The event is set to be a brilliant day out for car enthusiasts, and the whole family alike, with lots to see and do. The Concorde Classics Car Show Committee are an amazing bunch of people and have supported our hospices for 13 years, raising over £107,350 for our charity. I cannot put into words how much we appreciate their wonderful support and I very much look forward to another fun-packed car show in September.

To find out how your support, and the proceeds from events like the Concorde Classics Car Show, helps local families that need it most, hear from Naomi House mum, Bev, in her family story. Bev’s daughter, Bonnie, was born with severe brain damage and Bev was told to take her baby home and keep her happy. They didn’t expect Bonnie to live longer than a month. That was 30 years ago.
