Road closures confirmed for Festival of Classics


Newport Now BID is staging its annual Festival of Classics car show in the city centre on Saturday, June 8.

The event will be making use of both Commercial Street and High Street to exhibit classic and vintage cars and motorcycles and to stage a street market. To enable the event to run smoothly and safely for exhibitors and visitors, there will be road closures in place.

Commercial Street (between Stow Hill and Hill Street), High Street, Griffin Street, Market Street, Corn Street (between Upper Dock Street and Commercial Street), and Charles Street (from the Job Centre downwards) will be closed to all vehicles, including pedal cycles, from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, June 8.

If you have deliveries during the closure times, can you please ensure that alternative arrangements are made; or that deliveries are completed prior to the closure starting.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, but the safety of visitors to the city centre is paramount.

If you have any queries regarding the closure, please do not hesitate to contact BID manager Kevin Ward on or 07824 472543.
