On Sunday 5th May I had the pleasure of showcasing my photography at The Classic Motor Hub in Bibury, Gloucestershire as part of their Coffee & Classics Italian event which attracted a huge crowd of marvellous guests and their wonderful Italian Classics.
It was great to be amongst some of the finest Italian cars and motorcycles, from Ferrari to Ducatti and Lamborghini to Lambretta and so much more!
Whilst I wasn’t behind my ‘desk’ discussing potential commissions, I took a brief few moments to grab my camera to capture the essence of the event to give you a flavour of the occasion.
The cars and bikes arrived in quick succession with a live band adding to the Italian atmosphere and many familiar faces who frequent these occasions and new ones too, eager to see what the Hub has to offer and to share their love of cars.
It was good to speak to the drivers and their passengers to hear a little bit more about their cars and the history behind them, they each had an interesting story to tell.
Scroll on down to soak up the atmosphere…
You really have to see the showrooms for yourselves because this is not like any other showroom I have encountered, The Classic Motor Hub sits in a five-acre former RAF site dedicated to classic motor sales and events, it is a haven of mixed delights in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere which resembles a museum, a museum where you can buy the ‘goods’ is a match made in heaven.
The team at the Hub certainly know how to put on events, they take place the first Sunday of the month between April and October from 10am - 1pm with a different theme each time.
The Classic Motor Hub is open Tuesday to Friday 10am -5pm and Saturday 9am-3pm.
I’ll be back there again on Sunday 2nd June for their next event and to sell my limited edition framed photographs and to discuss any commissions you have in mind.
A few cars from other parts of Europe were included to add to the mix too, the Citroën is from 1948!
That’s it for now, I’ll be back again soon with other updates about my work, in the meantime if you are interested in taking one of your cars or bikes to the next event on Sunday 2nd June, follow this link to find out more.
Thanks for reading, bye for now…
