The action is at Kop Hill in Princes Risborough, and all the fun, thrills and hard work contribute to raise funds for local charities and good causes on behalf of Heart of Bucks- the Community Foundation of Buckinghamshire – well over £500,000 to date!
So what can you expect from this year’s Festival? Well if its cars and bikes, then the hill will be packed with both, with commemorative runs celebrating motoring through the ages from the early 1900’s to modern day exotics. Returning to storm the hill is the Brooklands record breaking Napier Railton. Why not buy a Grandstand ticket and see all the action.
In the Paddock you can get up close to the vehicles and drivers, visit the fun fair and ride the Ferris wheel, check out the Soapbox competition with new, exciting additions to the track, or how about finding out more about that treasured family heirloom? Eric Knowles and his team from the BBC Antiques Roadshow will give free valuations of any item that can be fitted into a carrier bag or an image on your tablet or phone.
Come and help celebrate some special anniversaries – 100 years since the Great War ended is marked with cars and vehicles from that era. Seventy years since the launch of the first Land Rover and Jaguar XK120.
With so many things to see and do a break for some food and drink will definitely be in order. So, relax in the food court while taking in the sounds of the stage, with a fantastic line up. Then why not browse the many exhibitors and indulge in a spot of retail therapy – from art to clothing, memorabilia to food.
Whether cars and bikes are your thing or not rest assured this year’s Kop Hill Climb Festival is a family affair.
