Editor's Choice

Celebrate fine French automobiles at Prescott Speed Hill Climb’s La Vie en Bleu 2015, complete with a Bugatti Veyron, can-can dancing and family entertainment galore.

Gloucestershire motorheads are in for another treat this spring, when the prestigious Prescott Speed Hill Climb plays host to the ninth La Vie en Bleu weekend festival.

Taking place on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May 2015, the home of the Bugatti Owners’ Club will be transformed in celebration of fine French automobiles – when both vintage and classic cars will be on show at the historic venue.

This year will see many of the regular competitors make a welcome return, in addition to the likes of the Formula One three-time world champion, Ayrton Senna’s, Lotus Renault.

Other car clubs confirmed to attend include Amilcar, Sandford, Salmson, Renault, Delage, Hispano and many, many more.

What’s more, although the Bugatti Veyron has now ceased production, event organisers have confirmed the car’s attendance at the event, giving visitors the opportunity to see the car in the flesh with demonstrations running throughout the weekend.

Other highlights of the day are set to include French-themed can-can dancing; live music with plenty of accordions; an appearance from the Gendarmes; and a French-style shopping village brimming with food, art and berets.

Up to three children aged 14 and under can enjoy free entry with a paying adult, giving the whole family an excuse to make a real weekend of this springtime highlight.
