Revival and vintage events

Each year there is the legendary Goodwood Revival taking place in September. Not to confuse with Goodwood Festival of Speed usually in June.

Vintage is without a doubt coming back and this affects also the cycling industry with the famous Tweed Run but also Velo Vintage in Devon and even in France with Anjou Vélo Vintage.

The Southwest of England has also seen Crikey! It’s Vintage – it has proven to be rather popular and there is something else coming up early September 2014.

It is seen as exclusive, innovative and challenging too: Turner Locker Barnfield Revival.

Here is the event dedicated Facebook Page. A small Goodwood Revival in a charming crescent.


The brief is short and clear:

"Classic Car event Exeter an unashamed imitation of The Goodwood Revival, drivers and guests to dress in period costume to match their vehicles."

A few details for this gathering: music by The Siren Sisters (1940’s singing trio) and even a vintage tea room by newly opened The Hidden Treasure Tea Room.

Now, it is all about networking to get participants, but this shouldn’t be that difficult with social media everything can go rather fast. Online advertising goes global and consequently there is no limit to outreach… it makes life easier for everyone – organizers and the general public too.


According to what is announced, there will be this British final touch, which makes all these open air events special and successful.

An interesting approach from these commercial property consultants who deal on a day-to-day basis with serious situations such as business relocation, investment property and office spaces to let. Time to unwind, relax and have fun for a day around classic cars under the sun of the Southwest of England.

Not to forget that Hackett is also official sponsor of Goodwood Revival, this is clearly a sign of quality with that finesse, which gives a cachet to the overall reunion.

"…The Revival is the world’s most popular historic motor race meeting and the only event of its kind to be staged entirely in the nostalgic time capsule of the 1940s, 50s and 60s…a real must whether you are a car enthusiast or not…"
