It is with regret we have come to the conclusion that it will be impossible to hold Vintage Stony on New Year’s Day 2021 in the way that we are used to and all enjoy.
As you will know, our event is held in a public space where it is not possible to control the number of visitors – be they exhibitors with their vintage and classic cars or the many members of the public who attend.
With the ongoing Covid–19 epidemic and demands required of the Government Protocols, we could not guarantee to maintain safe distances between you all, nor maintain the maximum meeting numbers required.
We sincerely hope that this dilemma will be over soon and that we are able to invite you all to our Classic Stony event in June 2021. In the meantime, we hope that you will keep safe and will manage to avoid this illness, and we look forward to seeing you and your cars, bikes and other vehicles of interest in the future.
Best Wishes to you all
Vintage & Stony Events Team
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 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.
Its free for entrants and spectators but we do collect donations for Willen Hospice. 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.
