Would you like to bring your Hot Rod, Van or Custom Car? Due to space restrictions, places at Cars & Coffee are strictly limited and only pre-registered vehicles will be permitted onto Millennium Place on the day. To register please email

Now in its fourth year, our regular Cars & Coffee events are growing in numbers every year. We also welcome on-board Footman James Insurance as our Cars & Coffee Sponsor for 2017. Every car owner will receive a voucher for a free Tea/Coffee and Party or Teacake from the Esquires Range.
