The first annual Didsbury Car Show 2010 took place on Sunday 11th July in Didsbury Park. The event started at 12pm and ran right through to 5pm.

The charity car show event, in support of Music In Hospitals was the first Car Show to take place in Didsbury. The theme in it's first year was cars with character and included such cars as

Being closet car fans we went along to have a poke around and were pleasantly surprised by not only the turnout but the huge selection of car eye-candy to dribble over.

The love and the care that people lavish on their cars is enough to bring a tear to the eye.

The only thing really missing from the event was better food options and more information on related stalls.

As Lesley Jackson said on our Facebook Page, "If this becomes an annual event organisers should persuade local cafes to provide coffee and cakes - they'd have done a bomb today." and we couldn't agree more. If Airyfairycupcakes, Silver Apples or a Folk Cafe BBQ had been in attendance, people would have been fighting their way to the front of the queue. Maybe next year though hey!?
