Blackpool Vehicle Preservation Group



About Us

Over recent years we've gone from strength to strength with more members and immensely popular events with hundreds of vehicles on show and huge visitors numbers.

Here at Blackpool Vehicle Preservation Group (BVPG) we are a group of vehicle enthusiasts. We are not just a classic car club, many of us own vehicles other than cars and some do not own a vehicle but have a keen interest in the motoring world.

If you share our interest, please come along to a club meeting or event and meet some friendly, like minded people, click "Latest News & Tweets" for forthcoming events and visit our Facebook page.

For more details on our events, send us an email to

If you have any questions about our group please do not hesitate to call our Chairman, Bill Swindlehurst.
