After a 2 year break from COVID, the popular Classics at the College event is returning in 2022!   The popular event, which raises vital monies for Hope House Children’s Hospices, is being held on Saturday 4 June and this year will also be celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee.

Around 100 local classic and vintage vehicles will enjoy a scenic drive from Hope House through the stunning Shropshire and Welsh countryside before driving up to the magnificent gothic building of Ellesmere College.

The car run will leave Hope House at 10.30am, reaching Ellesmere College around midday.

From 12.30pm onwards members of the public are encouraged to come along to the college for free to see the fantastic selection of classic vehicles on display until 4pm.

The college will also be holding a free art exhibition on the same day which can be enjoyed at the same time. The exhibition will be in their fabulous grand hall (known as Big School) – well worth a visit for its own beauty.

Julie Kirk, organiser of the rally said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the Classics at the College event again and to be celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee.   The event is a fantastic opportunity for enthusiasts to get together to show their vehicles, and for members of the public to come along and appreciate their beauty whilst raising money for such an important local charity”

Early bird entry for the event is £11 per vehicle up to April 30, increasing to £15 thereafter.  You can sign up online at or by calling 01691 671671.
