AN exciting blend of vintage motors, super sports cars and top class cooking is coming together at the fifth annual Gloucestershire Motor Show.

Taking place on June 7-8 in the stunning grounds of Highnam Court the popular show is back again this year to wow auto enthusiasts and raise money for the Pied Piper Appeal.

Chairman of the show Nick Broady said: "This year is going to be bigger and better with a lot more activities for the whole family to enjoy.

"Every single penny goes towards helping sick children in Gloucestershire."

One of the star attractions at the show will be the chance to enjoy a ride in either a Ferrari 458, a Porsche 911 Cabriolet or a Nissan GTR.

There will also be 120 classic cars including Rolls Royces dating back to the 1920s, Bentleys and Bugattis as well as a magnificent Peterson Blower Bentley. Petersen Engineering has forged a name for itself worldwide for rebuilding and recreating vintage Bentley motor cars using period parts and built to original designs.

The county's top motor dealerships will also be at the show including Blade, Bristol Street Motors, Warners, Wessex, Baylis, Cheltenham Audi and Williams Morgan.

But it is not all about horsepower at the Gloucestershire Motor Show 2014 - there is a wide variety of fun activities to entertain the entire family.

Take a tethered ride in the Renishaw hot air balloon or let the little ones play in the children's marquee.

Strictly Come Dancing star and former James Bond girl Fiona Fullerton will be bringing a touch of glamour to the show which also features a fabulous fashion event.

Food also takes centre stage throughout the weekend with a feast of different hot and cold dishes to enjoy as well as cookery demonstrations from top chefs.

Gloucester-born Tom Kerridge is due to film at the show and former England Gloucester Rugby star turned Masterchef winner Phil Vickery is also attending.

Executive head chef at the Ellenborough Park Hotel Davd Kelman is also on the bill.
