Northamptonshire: 7th July 2022

It’s almost time for the automotive highlights of the year, and there’s still time to grab a ticket for the 2022 Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional taking place on Saturday 30th July at Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire.

Festival of the Unexceptional showcases long forgotten ordinary classics of the late 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s, and remains the only concours where a sporty or luxury model is rejected over a base model for a spot on the judging lawn. If you remember a time when windows were wound up and down, when central locking meant leaning over to unlock the door from the inside, and when a passenger door mirror was optional, this is the show for you.

10 cars have already been announced as taking part in the 2022 concours including a Fiat Panda Italia, Ford Fiesta Fanfare, and a Mazda 1800.

A number of special attractions will be added for the 2022 event, including esteemed motoring journalist Steve Cropley joining the Concours judging panel, and TV Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer attending the show. In addition, there will be a number of exhibitors, a children’s play area and hundreds of unexceptional cars to view in outside of the 50 chosen to be a part of the concours judging.

Tickets for the 2022 Festival of the Unexceptional are priced at just £20 per car, meaning the more friends and family guests bring along, the better value the ticket price. Limited tickets remain available and early booking is advised to avoid missing out.

Press accreditation remains open for media who wish to cover the event.
