Our sponsors

Alton Lions Club (CIO) would like to thank the sponsors of Alton Classic Car Show 2023, without whom it would not be possible to hold the event.

Primary sponsor

The Little Grey Cells

The Little Grey Cells is an Alton business established in 2006 as a Marketing Consultancy which has since gone on to become a Business Consultancy, specialising in Corporate Restructuring. Using the Mantra “Creative Solutions” The Little Grey Cells truly deliver on the age old saying of thinking outside the box in everything they do, whether that’s reviewing the processes and structure of a business as part of a Business Review or in Project Management (a specialty), managing both in house and projects for corporate clients.

The Little Grey Cells has a long history of supporting Alton and in particular The Alton Lions, whether that’s Party in the Park, Community Quiz Nights or one of their many other fundraisers, we are honoured to continue our support of the Lions Classic Car Show.

The Little Grey Cells Managing Director Dean-Paul Phillips tells us: Alton’s Classic Car show is without doubt the towns greatest “must attend” event, there’s something for everyone and even if you’re not a “petrol head” the show can capture the heart or imagination of anyone, any age. The 2023 offering promises to be high octane as we invite motorsport to roar it’s way into the centre of our town.

We are a family business owned and operated by John Walker who himself is the proud owner of just a few Modern Classics. His passion for cars and his expertise in Transporting Vintage & Classic and Super-Cars led to the creation of the Storage Facility which is now home to a host of interesting vehicles.

Vehicles awaiting restoration or entry into shows and rallies such as London to Brighton. Many customers wanted somewhere safe and secure and with the right environment to preserve their precious cars and to leave them in the hands of someone who knows how to care for them.

Whether you own one car needing storage for just a few weeks………..long term storage or, a safe home for your car collection – we offer easy access seven days a week to your car and you can collect or arrange delivery if required in our Fully Enclosed Trailer.
