The Aston Martin Owners Club will take over the King’s Boulevard with 50 of its members’ finest Aston Martin cars. In addition, a special collection of 25 classic cars, representing the five manufacturing eras of Aston Martin, will be on display between the fountains of the award-winning Granary Square – a celebration of world class British car design through the ages.

Meet the owners of these beautiful machines and discover more about the bespoke engineering and craftsmanship of the Aston Martin. Take the driving seat in car-themed activities throughout the day. Relive the bygone era with music performances inspired by the classic cars on display at Granary Square. Be entertained by a host of vintage dressed actors, including roller girls, and for younger car aficionados, a classic car treasure hunt and competition will reward one lucky winner with a toy ride-in car.

A range of delicious vintage-themed food will be available or take in the event from the outdoor terraces of Granary Square, home to a range of popular restaurants.
