Click on the video below to get a flavour of just what the Greetham Gathering is all about…
The Greetham Gathering is an informal meeting of owners and enthusiasts with interests of classic and vintage motorcycles, cars and other classic vehicles. It is held once a month on the third Thursday of May, June, July, August and September, in the grounds of Greetham Community Centre. The event is open from about 5:00pm until dusk. We shall use this website to keep you informed of each event and any relevant information that you may need, so please check back here before you come to the event. The dates of the 2019 Gatherings are:
16 May 20 June 18 July 15 August 19 September
We do ask that all attendees be mindful of the fact that the location is on the edge of a village, and that you keep your vehicle speed to within the legal limits as there are children here. Also, please refrain from making excessive noise when driving through the village as we want the residents to be supportive of the Gathering, and please do not park on the grass verges around the Gathering – we have ample parking on-site. To that end, we operate a one-way traffic flow system whereby you approach the venue from the centre of the villageand proceed north up Great Lane. Under no circumstances can we allow vehicles to approach from the north side of Greetham down the gated section of Great Lane. Vehicles exiting the Gathering will be directed away from the village to keep disturbance in the village to a minimum. We know it may add a few minutes to your travel time, but we hope you understand the reasons. These travel requirements are a condition of us being allowed to hold the Gathering and thus keep our neighbours “on-side” with the event. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation on this.
All are welcome – with or without a classic or vintage vehicle! Come along and savor the relaxed setting and informal atmosphere. Relax and enjoy a drink (hot and cold!) and a bite.
On site we provide:
- Ample parking including disabled (we are currently charging just £1.00 per vehicle to enter). Motorcycles will be parked on tarmac, other vehicles on grass. Cars will be charged their parking fee at the gate; motorcyclists when they dismount. We like to segregate classic/vintage vehicles from more modern ones, so be prepared….
- A fully licensed bar will be open
- Hot food, cakes, teas, coffee and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available
All profits will be donated to the local Air Ambulance service and we have a raffle to further that cause. At time of writing we are arranging a presentation of our 2018 donation to the local Air Ambulance, and we shall disclose what that is soon after the presentation has occurred, in mid-February. Thank you so much for your support.
We look forward to seeing you at a 2019 Gathering…….

**STOP PRESS – January 2019***
In 2018 we experienced such a large turnout at some of our meetings that we were seriously challenged for parking space. In order to prevent that happening again, we have secured additional parking in the field adjacent to the Community Centre field, so there should be no risk to not having a parking space. See you later in the year…..
**STOP PRESS – March 2019***
We have been working with the local Air Ambulance to arrange a photo opportunity where we can hand over our 2018 donation to them. For very valid reasons outside of our control, we have not been able to do that, but we do have a provisional date in April when we can perform the handover. We have held off announcing our donation amount because we wanted a photo of the presentation, but have decided to announce now that we are donating £2400.00 to the local Air Ambulance from our takings at the 2018 Gatherings. This sum is the same as last years’ donation and we are pleased to be able to do this due to the tremendous support we have had from you. Thank you again and here’s looking forward to another season of fantastic Gatherings. Photos will be posted on this site when we have them.
