A new event celebrating Britain’s most popular car brand is set to become one of the highlights of the show calendar.

The International Ford Fair will be held at Sandown Park in Surrey, on the outskirts of London, on the weekend of April 30 and May 1, and will bring together fans of the blue oval brand from all over the world.

The indoor event will feature some of the finest Fords from the UK and beyond, be they standard, restored or modified, along with premium trade stands from a variety of Ford experts and specialists.

There will be live demonstrations throughout the day, along with a significant presence from two of the Ford scene’s most respected magazines – Classic Ford and Fast Ford.

Advance tickets for the show are available now, priced at £10 per person for single-day access, or £20 for the weekend – up to two children below the age of 14 go free.

Those wishing to make even more of a weekend of it can also take advantage of on-site camping for an extra £10 per person, adding to the show’s festival feel. They can be bought from the show’s official website at www.theinternationalfordshow.com

Full details of the show, the cars and the various activities will be announced nearer the date, on the event website, or via the official Facebook page and Twitter feeds.
