    Default NEC, Birmingham Classic Motor Show 12th-14th November 2021

    Anyone planning on attending?

    https://www.necclassicmotorshow.com/

    Is it worth going on Friday rather then the weekend to void the crowds?


    PS Has anyone got a promo code for tickets???!!! ;-')

    Me!

    We’re probably going on the Friday as we can but not sure if any day is better…
    I usually like Sundays for most exhibitions as the trade stands have the better deals?

    I cant quite make my mind up - I just assumed Friday would be quieter with folk not being able to take time off work.

    personally if your driving down avoid Friday, because when its time to leave Fridays the worst traffic in Birmingham if going North, south OK so come on weekend, or by train any day as stops straight at the NEC.

    I was going to drive down Friday or Saturday, stay over nearby and return Saturday/Sunday.

    Just wondering whether its worth going Friday if there's less people there

    I may do this. It has been a few years since I have been. I too would stay over. Not yet sure which night I would stay over though. I worked for Warwick Uni many years ago and as Paul says, Friday afternoon on the A45/M42... noooooo

    I always go on the Friday and help man the FOC stand. Will be doing the same this year. Never been on Sat or Sun so can't speak for that. Traffic going south is just bad for the M42 bit but once on the M40 is fine.
