A very British MOTOR SHOW 2020 happened on


Sunday 6th September

We had some fantastic vehicles this year and, it so happens, 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

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.

With grateful thanks to John Nunney for the use of his amazing photographic and design skills

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
