A weekend of 1950's and 1960's Classic Nostalgia awaits you at the Midland Automobile Club's Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb on the 19th and 20th July, supported by Classic and Sports Car and Peter James and Stewart Miller Insurance. The annual event attracts a range of competing cars from the 1950s and 60s, and spectacular classic car displays in both the paddock and orchard. Visitors are encouraged to wear period dress, with prizes awarded on the Sunday for the best vintage outfits.
