The three-day extravaganza offers something for everyone: from the legendary Vulcan bomber to classic vintage fashion, plus, of course, the ubiquitous collection of old – and older – motor vehicles.
The last flying Vulcan bomber – XH558 – will carry out a flypast on the Saturday of the show as part of a series of appearances to mark its final year in flight.
For car enthusiasts, one of the biggest draws will be the Ferrari collection on display. The ‘Prancing Horse’ will have its largest-ever Revival presence at this year’s event – more than 50 of the legendary Italian machines – with a special display of road cars and a race dedicated to some of its most successful competition vehicles.
Among the household names to be seen, Dragon’s Den star Theo Paphitis will make his Goodwood debut, racing a classic Ford Anglia in the St Mary’s Trophy for 1960s production saloons. He gained his racing licence during the winter and has already finished on the podium.
And those who dress up in period costume – from the 1940s to the 1960s – are in the race to be Goodwood’s ‘Best Dressed’, with three men and women, on each day of the festival, chosen to win some unique prizes.
Tickets for the Revival are available from www.goodwood.com or through Goodwood’s ticket hotline 01243 755055.
