MOTOR SHOW 2022 will be arriving on the 3rd JULY!
We hope to have yet another interesting and broad mix of motors for MOTOR SHOW 2022 - from our expected sporting icons through to the cute & pretty little 3-wheeled Piaggio Apes (you'll definitely want one!), courtesy of Tukxi Ltd.
There will be live music, along with pizzas served from the King's Shack and your chance again to vote for your favourite car in show.
It was in the Kings Arms, sat comfortably at the bar, on a quiet winter's eve, when an idea suddenly sprung to mind. You may not be surprised to learn that there are a fair few petrol-heads within our village, who love to show their pride & joys and enjoy seeing others display theirs.
So, when Jo & Lee confirmed they would be happy for The Kings Arms garden to become our showground, the PORTESHAM MOTOR SHOW was born with the inaugural event being MOTOR SHOW 2017.
A group name was then required, ideally in keeping with a small and nostalgic village group, reminding folk of a bygone age. The PORTESHAM AUTOMOBILE SOCIETY seemed most appropriate, but so we could exhibit an eclectic mix and not just vehicles of a certain age as is generally found in many a Classic Car Show, we named our event the MOTOR SHOW.
A very British MOTOR SHOW took place on Sunday 6th September 2020
We had some fantastic vehicles and, it so happened, they were all "Made in Britain" :
Thanks go to The Kings Arms for allowing it to happen
Colin - 1904 Humber Olympian. Tristan - Morgan 3 Wheeler. John - Stag, NG TA and Oxford Allen Scythe!
Bruce - E-Type and winning XK120. Mike - Interceptor. Michael - MG TF. Mike - MGB GT. Paul - MG Midget
Danny - TR6. Steve - Aston AMV8. Keith - Aston DB7. Stewart - Aston Vantage V8
Despite it being called the Portesham Automobile Society, anyone within the Chesil Bank Parish with an interest in motors, whether they be 2, 3, 4 or more wheeled (or none, it just needs a motor) is very welcome to join us. Our current members' ages range from 14 to 84.
We raised funds in 2019 to help buy the defibrillator which can be found in the Kings Arms Front Street foyer
With grateful thanks to John Nunney for the use of his amazing photographic and design skills
