Cars & Coffee 2016 dates announced


Classic hire and workshop specialist Great Escape Cars has announced the 2016 dates for its popular Cars & Coffee meets at its Redditch base. The Sunday morning gatherings bring local classic car enthusiasts together with the promise of free coffee, hot rolls and a donation to local Acorn’s Children’s Hospice for every car that comes along.

The popularity of the 2015 Cars & Coffee events, which saw over 100 classic cars turn up for each one, has encouraged Great Escape Cars to add more dates for 2016. The events run on Sundays between 10am and 12pm on March 27th, May 22nd, July 24th and September 25th. Great Escape Cars’ address is 26 Dunlop Road, Redditch B97 5XP. There is no need to pre-book – just turn up, grab a coffee and inspect the cars.

Any classic car is welcome and there is secure parking at Great Escape Cars’ site for 100-200 vehicles. Free barista-made coffee is provided and the owners of the first 50 cars on site will receive a free hot roll. Great Escape Cars donate £1 to Acorns Hospice for every car that attends. In 2015 the charity received several hundred pounds from the company.

“We were gobsmacked by the turnout for our 2015 Cars & Coffee events,” says Graham Eason of Great Escape Cars. “For 2016 the format is the same – an informal gathering of enthusiasts, plus great coffee and hot rolls.

“We’ll have some of our hire fleet on display, plus a chance to talk to our workshop about our restoration services.”

Great Escape Cars is the UK’s largest classic car hire company. As well as car hire the business operates a MG and Jaguar specialist workshop and provides cars for TV and films. Great Esacpe Cars also runs corporate events and road trips.
