Clarion Events, organiser of the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, is working in partnership with NCP Car Parks to provide visitors with an alternative parking option for the automotive event, which is to be held at Birmingham’s NEC this November.

The move comes after a number of visitors to the event complained at the high parking charges being applied by the NEC.

Clarion Events is owned by Blackstone, the asset management company. NEC Group is also owned by Blackstone.

Lee Masters, show director, explained: “It is important to us that we give our visitors the best experience possible when enjoying their day out at the show. We know travel and parking is key factor in this and have secured discounted parking at an NCP car park at the nearby Birmingham International Airport to give visitors more choices when planning their visit.”

Visitor can park in the airport NCP Car Park 5, between 8am and 7.30pm, for just £9 when booking in advance. A free shuttle bus will run from the car park. There is still the option to park at the NEC, which costs £12 per day when booked in advance and £16 if paid on the day.
