It is probably worth checking if these events are still on as it is some time since the list was published.

Hi Eric, thanks for the information. I know the places you mentioned well, I lived in Stacksteads not far from Burnley and would go to the dance hall in Burnley on a Saturday evening. My brother and his family live in Poulton le Fylde near Fleetwood. He doesn't have a Lotus yet but eventually my car will be his, he's 13 years younger than me.

A bit of car related TV for evening entertainment have look at Bangers and Cash shown multiple times a day on Freeview. Bit further out for you but a day at a Matthewsons having a mooch around the cars and memorabilia would be great day out search Thornton Le Dale
