The UK’s largest new car selling space
What an incredible year 2020 promises to be for the Baston Car and Bike Show. In 9 short years of the event’s existence that had already demanded a move to a larger display site, extraordinary growth accelerated even further resulting in that just 2 years down the line we out grew our newly prepared Baston site.
As a result, organisers decided there was only one place they wanted to go. Nearby Grimsthorpe Castle just a few minutes drive west of Bourne in the beautiful South Kesteven district of South Lincolnshire. With convenient access to the A1 just over 10 minutes away and the Cathedral Cities of Peterborough and Lincoln to the south and north, it was the perfect location to host this prestigious event and catchment of visiting, and therefore buying, public.
Having joined forces with a Grimsthorpe team in 2019, lead by Sebastian Miller, new event opportunities are arising all the time. Sebastian is also a car enthusiast which helps when you consider it’s his beautifully manicured lawn that will play host to the tyres of car manufacturers and dealers selling their latest models as well as a variety of clubs and motorsport displays.
Now in our second year at Grimsthorpe the 2020 event looks to surpass the success of 2019s show. Look out for exciting new opportunities to get involved.
We will update this page once all opportunities to be part of this great show are finalised.

Previous sponsors are clear about the benefits the event offers. Many quote brand exposure which of course is highly desirable. But when they claim that exposure couples with real-world sales, whether to attend the event becomes one of the easier business decisions of the year.
“We’ve been attending the Baston Car and Bike show for over 6 years and have to say that it is one of the best organised events we display our cars at. The show has expanded massively over the years, but the organisation remains first class and personal. Each year at the show we speak to a large volume of current and potential customers and have definitely sold a number of cars directly from it.”
“Having attended Baston Car and Bike Show for many years, as a large group it’s invaluable to us in getting our multi-brand franchise name and products out to a very large audience. The best bit? The show manages to be both professional but ultimately provides a wonderfully relaxed ambiance in which buyers can browse their next car purchase.”
It’s the full intention of the organisers to carry on building on the success of the event. The new location at Grimsthorpe Castle enables us to head along pathways only dreamed of in previous years. We have the opportunity to turn this one day event into a weekend celebration, and possibly as early as next year. If successful this would enable us to allow motor manufacturers and dealers to use the ‘Hill’ and the Estates 8 miles of roads and 3000 acres of parkland to provide test drives in a safe and scenic environment.
On the Sunday, the Hill will morph into an elevated course to showcase everything from F1 cars at full audible chat, screaming motorcycles and numerous other, mostly diverse, motor powered vehicles strutting their stuff on the rise in front of this beautiful castle.
