Concours of Elegance, Hampton Court Palace 2024


Pictured above: Our previous gathering in September 2022

The 2024 Concours of Elegance will take place from Friday 30th August to Sunday 1st September at Hampton Court Palace, once again bringing a selection of 60 of the rarest cars from around the world – many of which will never have been seen before in the UK. Uniquely, the Concours of Elegance winner isn’t selected by a panel of judges but by the owners of the cars themselves. Each participant is asked to vote on the other models on display to decide which car is considered to be the ‘Best in Show’.

Complementing the Concours of Elegance will be displays of hundreds of other fine motor cars, including entrants to The Club Trophy. Now in its eighth year, The Club Trophy sees some of the UK’s most prestigious car clubs offering up their finest examples to an independent panel of judges. The winning Club Trophy car will secure a place in the following year’s main Concours of Elegance event.

The Coachmakers has been offered 10 places in the Club display on Saturday 31st August and knowing how many of us just love our garage ‘children’, this prestigious event will be a wonderful opportunity to show them off.

We have been given an early opportunity to book and have been offered a nice discount by the organisers. A promotional code has been set up:- 24COACH. The link for us to use is: https://concoursofelegance.seetickets.com/event/concours-of-elegance/hampton-court-palace/2814152?offercode=24coach

Each participant needs to purchase a Car Club Display Pass.

In previous years we have had a very small display. Hopefully this year we will be able to have 10 beautiful cars and their proud owners, and who knows, the Club Trophy might be in sight!
