Vintage poster for classic car show unveiled

Published Wednesday 23 May 2018

The new vintage style poster for this year’s Market Harborough Classic Car Show has been unveiled.

Harborough District Council has unveiled the promotional poster – designed in an art deco style – for the classic car show being staged in the town in July.

The new poster (pictured) has been created by local artist Jonathan Holder who also created the design for the Harborough by the Sea postcard three years ago, as well as last year’s classic car show poster.

A framed version of the poster could be presented as a prize as part of the event and special limited-edition collectors’ postcards, featuring the design, are being produced to promote the event.

Market Harborough's Classic Car Show returns on Sunday 8 July 2018 from 10am to 4pm – with some of the most amazing retro cars, motorcycles, scooters and commercial vehicles from across the country lining the streets.

Last year's inaugural event proved hugely successful with thousands of people, and car enthusiasts, descending on the town for the occasion.

They'll also be stalls and activities, plus prizes for 'best in show' and other categories up for grabs if you enter a vehicle in the event.

Councillor Neil Bannister, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “This poster is fantastic and will certainly transport people back to a golden age. It will definitely help promote the event and the framed print will no doubt be a much sought-after prize on the day.”
