The ultimate automotive garden party comes to the City


After a year of zoom meetings, this summer calls for something a little more spectacular when it comes to socialising. And what could be more luxe than an al fresco garden party featuring close to 100 classic and performance cars, high end food from the British caterer, Searcys, and buckets of Veuve Clicquot Champagne?

One of the first public events of the year, taking place between 8th – 10th June, The London Concours returns for the ultimate celebration of motoring, gastronomy, and luxury in the city.

Taking over the iconic Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) and set to the backdrop of the historic Armoury House, home to the active British Army regiment and charity organisation, The Concours will transform the five-acre Artillery Garden into a motoring paradise with more than £50m worth of the rarest collectible cars on display.
