A fine week to be out in the field, and what better surroundings than the sun-drenched Castle Howard Estate.
The Yorkshire Post Motor Show has become somewhat of a tradition for Daniel Bland, now in his 15th year of being involved in the event which began at Harwood House over two decades ago.
Utilising his skills as an Architect to plan and coordinate the events infrastructure Daniel, alongside his associate Martin Atkinson of Hex Events, roll up their sleeves and build the event themselves, involving everything from setting out onsite, erection of temporary fencing, installing trackway for the construction of a temporary vehicle bridge to the de-rig and clear-up following the event itself.
The annual event, traditionally on Father’s Day, attracts several thousand day visitors and hundreds of classic vehicles ranging from pre-war marvels, post war classics such as the Triumph, MG and loveable Mini, to the more ‘modern’ classics such as the Peugeot 205, Ford Escort and VW Golf. Additionally, the event plays host to several main dealers, including Bespoke, Inchcape Landrover and Tesla, temping visitors with their latest luxury cars.
Whilst enjoying the variety of arena displays in the glorious sunshine, visitors were kept ‘fed and watered’ by the team at Homegrown Hospitality; who provided a wide range of delicious food and drinks all sourced locally from gods own country.
