Kop Hill Climb Festival

Fundraising for the local community

15/16th September 2018

Visitor Info

Kop Hill Climb Festival is so much more than a passive celebration of the history of motoring. It’s your chance to get up close and personal with all the cars and bikes in action – admire their beauty and chat with their owners– the full experience.  We’re set in a beautifully relaxed location with a real family friendly village atmosphere.

If you’ve had your fill of cars and bikes then the festival boasts a tempting array of vintage clothing, antiques, memorabilia and art.  Set in the beautiful Chiltern Hills, we have just about everything you can think of that’s motoring related – a real village of delights.  Enjoy some great food and drink in the heart of the paddock or perhaps take in the amazing panorama from the Ferris wheel.  Come and cheer on your favourites in the soapbox challenge, ride the dodgems, or relax with a pint in the sun and take in the live bands that are centre stage.  Everyone in your family will find there’s plenty to see and do even if cars and bikes are not the #1 thing in their world.

The best news is that it’s all in aid of raising money for local charities – so successful that last year we passed the half million pounds mark!

Opening Times

  • Gates open at 9:00am
  • The event closes at 6:00pm

Car Parking at Kop Hill Climb

  • Free car parking is provided at the event in adjacent fields.
  • Suitable foot wear is advisable.

Disabled Access

  • Kop Hill attempts to facilitate wheelchair users and has provided a disabled viewing area right by the start line. Space is limited, so one carer can be permitted with each wheelchair or mobility scooter.
  • The Grandstand and Viewing Carriers are unfortunately not accessible to wheel chair users.
  • Disabled Spectators should make themselves known to the Parking Stewards, they will be directed to a reserved parking area.
  • There are toilets for the disabled. One in the spectator field with the toilet block near the foot of Kop Hill, the other in the paddock adjacent to the stage and food area. Both have baby changing facilities.

Dogs at Kop Hill Climb

  • We welcome dogs to Kop Hill Climb with a few common sense rules followed.
  • Keep your pet on a short leash…with many spectators around and many vehicles on the move, especially at the start-line it is essential that your dog is under control at all times.
  • Clean it up…obvious we know but needless to say we want the event to be enjoyable and hygienic for everyone attending. There are many waste bins around the site so please “Bag it and Bin it”.
