BADCCC attended this event in 2016 and can confirm it’s a cracking day out. There is non stop action on the Thames and a carnival atmosphere on the river bank at Fawley Meadows at Henley-on-Thames.

This popular, long running event is now bigger and better than ever. It offers more attractions on the water, in the air and on the land, than ever before.

For example: This year will feature the largest display of traditional boats in Europe consisting of the fleet of Dunkirk “Little Ships” with MTB 102, Her Majesty’s row barge “Gloriana”, the return visit by Bluebird K3 and the largest gathering of amphibious vehicles to date. There will be a WW1 air display team and of course a display of Classic Cars from Austin 7 club, Lagonda club, Ford T club , Healy 3000 club, and potentially BAD CCC plus many individual entries.

Gary Hammond will be camping on-site on Fri 14th– Sat15th July in his VW T2 camper van and displaying his Messerschmitt KR200 on both Sat 15th and Sun 16th July.

It would be great if we could get a group from BAD CCC to attend on both days.

More details can be found at: http://www.tradboatfestival.com/home

Entry forms can be found at: http://www.tradboatfestival.com/vintage-classic-vehicle-registration

Standard entry is £13. However if you are displaying a Classic Car a fixed entry fee of £10.00 covers vehicle entry plus driver and one passenger for the 2 days of the Festival

(Please note there is a pre-1969 cut-off date for Classic display cars)

However, there is a Special Interest group covering the years 1970-1980 that should open this event up to additional member’s cars.

If you are attending please let Gary know what day and he will arrange all BADCCC cars to be together.
