  Hearse was a first for Stokesley’s Classics on Show in 2023

A 1993 Volvo hearse, complete with an award-winning mural by Castleford artist Mark Jepson, notched up a ‘first’ for Stokesley’s annual ‘Classics on Show’ event, which on Saturday, June  17th 2023.

The hearse, owned by Leeds enthusiast Gary Edwards, is a popular attraction for Halloween and Goth-type events being fully equipped with a bar, eerie sound sirens, flashing green lights and a coffin.

“We do sometimes also use it for funerals of family members and friends,” said Gary. “It is something of a showstopper and with its mural, based on Jim Morrison’s song ‘No-one gets out of here alive,’ it’s a whole lot of fun.”

‘Rehearsel’ made its Stokesley debut on the town’s Showfield in 2023 as the first hearse to enter ‘Classics on Show’ in the event’s 11-year-history.

“Every year we have new entrants for the show and Gary’s hearse is one of the more unusual we’ve ever had,” said Chris Mayes of Stokesley Rotary Club which organises the event.

Classics on Show 2023 was supported by Mathewson’s classic vehicle auctions of Thornton-le-Dale. The show is free to enter for exhibitors, though donations are welcomed. Visitors pay £7.50 or £20 for a family ticket for two adults and two children, and £4 for school age children (under 16) while auto jumble traders pay £20 for a standard pitch. The event regularly attracts up to 500 exhibitors. Funds raised from the 2023 show will go to Headlight, the Hutton Rudby-based charity working with bereaved families, Blood Bikes and Childline.
