Salon Privé Concours Thursday presented by Aviva

Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire OX20 1UL | 28 August - 31 August 2024

Honouring the Past, Celebrating the Future

Thursday brings another opportunity to admire some of the world’s most exceptional and desirable cars on display on Blenheim’s magnificent South Lawn. The expert judges will make their final deliberations and Thursday sees both the Churchill Cup for most exceptional design and the Best of Show Trophies presented.

Enjoy the atmosphere as the concours cars take to the stage to receive their awards during the Honorary Awards Parade, and later in the day the excitement builds before the announcement of the Duke of Marlborough Award, People’s Choice and the Best of Show.

As a Concours, the reputation of Salon Privé precedes it, with no other event in the UK rivalling the sensational venue, hospitality, brands on display and show-stopping array of classic cars.
