Wheelnuts Classic Car Show

The annual classic motor show known as ‘Wheelnuts’ is staged in the beautiful grounds of St Rose’s each spring. It has become a very popular event attracting large numbers of owners, with their unique and magnificent vehicles, as well as a large and appreciative crowd of admirers and enthusiasts. Together they celebrate all that is excellent in motor transport down through the ages.

The event has raised substantial funds which has allowed St Rose’s, along with help from the Variety Club of Great Britain, to replace its aged minibuses. Our children and students use them to go out and about in the community, visiting places of interest, attend sports events and take part in other leisure activities.
