2024 News

A huge thanks to all of those of you who came to Vintage Stony and made a donation to our chosen charity Willen Hospice. Also our sincere thanks to all the local businesses who supported the event with their donations and support. A record £6,940 was raised this year which was truly amazing for an event that is free to attend. Thank you again.


Thanks to everyone who attended this event, the Willen Hospice bookshop in the High Street sold a magnificent £1338.70 worth of books during the day.


Be sure to join us for Classic Stony on Sunday 2nd June to see more Classic Vehicles. Visit https://classicstony.co.uk/ for the latest event updates.


We are always looking for volunteers in the run up to the event and also on the day. Can you help?

About us

Welcome to Stony Stratford

The jewel in the crown of Milton Keynes and home of Vintage Stony. We can’t lay claim to putting Stony Stratford on the map – the Romans did that for us, but we do run two pretty special and popular car and motorcycle festivals in Stony, that have been growing steadily in size and stature for the past 10 years.

Our New Year’s Day event, starting at 09.30am, showcases pre-1940 cars and bikes, which have pride of place in the Market Square. Expect to ‘see’ a great deal of Vintage cars and bikes and even a few commercials, expect to ‘hear’ a cacophony of engines as we celebrate the New Year with ‘one minutes noise’ at midday, followed at 12.30, by our unmissable awards presentation, expect to ‘eat and drink’ at one of the many pubs and restaurants and stalls that open up especially to welcome you. Oh, and you can expect a free bacon butty if you are one of the first of the vintage pilots to arrive. The event ends at 2.00pm but you are welcome to linger longer and take advantage of the hospitality that Stony Stratford offers.

It’s free for spectators and drivers but donations to Willen Hospice would be appreciated. We are informed that they need to raise an astonishing 4.7 million a year to make it all happen, so please give generously – every little helps and any donation no matter how small will be gratefully received.

We look forward to seeing you here.
