We’ve been supporters of Show & Glow since their first event back in 2013 when it was held at the exclusive indoor space at Bluewater shopping centre. It continued there successfully for another year, however, Bluewater then decided to abolish the space, which meant Simon and the team at Show & Glow had to search for a new venue. Luckily, something popped up nearby (still in Kent of course), the UKP Leisure Club in Sittingbourne. Although we, unfortunately, missed last year’s show, our new photographer Tristan managed to get down there last weekend. As it turns out, Show & Glow has become one of the most chilled events on the UK circuit. With some patchy weather, it was still much drier than last year, which resulted in a great turn out and a mixed variety of cars, with most hailing from the surrounding Kent and London areas. We captured some of the highlights, showing off the mixture of cars – check them out below…

Looking for a laid-back day you can take the family to? Well, Show & Glow is just that. With no snobbery or limitations on what is or isn’t cool, you’ll find all sorts of incredible cars here. Plus, just £5 for tickets on the gate makes it an absolute bargain, too. Plus, free pitches for traders, we’re seriously considering it for next year.
