In 1977

An idea was formed by the leaders of the 'MG Car Club Anglia Centre' natter, about a car show.

This was subsequently held in the car park of the Queen Victoria Pub in Theydon Bois Essex, where the natter met. It was a great success and held there until 1984 when it became too large for the pub car park, and so it moved to Blake Hall near Ongar. Two years later it moved again to form an integral part of the Metropolitan Police show in Chigwell, under the guidance of Dave Stonehouse.

In 2006

Dave & his wife Veronica decided to move to Lincolnshire, and so it looked like the Queen Victoria car show would end.

By chance

A conversation in another pub with an MGCC member and a local Rotarian revealed that they had a charity event that we could join and, like the phoenix, the Queen Victoria car show rose from the ashes.

The revised event was first held in Billericay on the 15th July 2007.
