The 40th Carole Nash
International Classic MotorCycle Show

sponsored by Carole Nash
Staffordshire County Showground (ST18 0BD)


Due to the worsening situation of the coronavirus pandemic and recent announcements from the UK Government, Mortons Events have had to further postpone the 40th Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Show which was originally due to be held on the 25-26th April.

The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is the most important factor and the key reason for postponing the event. The event team have been continually monitoring the latest public health and government guidelines regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and acting in accordance with their advice.

We have secured a new date for the show at the Stafford County Showground which will now take place on Saturday 15th August to Sunday 16th August 2020. All ticket and trade bookings will be honoured for this new date. However, if you are unable to make this new date, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

For all ticket enquiries please contact our Customer Services team on 01507 529529 or email

For all trade enquiries please contact our Shows team on 01507 529430 or email

Lines are open Monday-Friday, 8.30am-5pm.

Thank you all for your patience, understanding and support in these unprecedented times.

Stafford works for us as there are many European visitors looking to buy parts. It seems to have become a main European centre for classic Japanese bike parts, especially in regard to the October event. The attraction of the auction, the used parts and bike sellers outside and the indoor vendors and clubs works well together.

Central Wheel Components and our sister company Wheelhouse Tyres have exhibited at the two Stafford Show shows since their for some 15 years. CWC shows examples of our range of rims, spokes and nipples coupled with our in-house wheel building service. Wheelhouse Tyres shows its full range of tyres for classic, road, race and MX usage. The two shows are similar but different. One catering for the up-and-coming Japanese ‘classic’ market and the other for the general classic enthusiast. It would be fair to say that along with the Shepton Mallet/Bristol Show, the Stafford shows rate as the best classic events that both CWC & Wheelhouse Tyres exhibit at in the UK.

Central Wheel Components have long been associated with both Stafford Shows. For many years we were the proud sponsors of the two annual events. CWC have two and sometimes 3 stands at each show. With a large presence in the main Bingley Hall supported by another large Outdoor stand featuring our Tyre Company ….. Wheelhouse Tyres. Mortons have brought an extra level of professionalism to both events & we always know that any problems will be swiftly resolved by Andy Catton or Andy Kitchen.
