The Festival of Classic & Sports Cars - Sunday 1st August 2021
Held in association with the Suffolk Vehicle Enthusiasts Club (SVEC). Over 7,000 people attended the 2019 festival.
Over 1000 vehicles attend, representing the last 10 decades of motoring history, including many from Britain’s motoring heyday – marques on display included Alvis, Bristol, Jensen, AC Riley, Armstong Sideley, Lea Francis, Crossley, BSA, Lagonda, Lanchester and Gordon Keeble. The oldest vehicle seen on display was a 1914 Ford Model T and the latest sports car models have included the Chevrolet Corvette and Ford Mustang’s as well as Ferraris’ and Porsche.
This amazing collection of vehicles is displayed against the backdrop of Helmingham Hall and its surrounding moat which sits in the middle of the ancient deer park.
As well as this impressive display of vehicles, the festival is also a lovely day out for the whole family with children’s activities, fairground stalls, over 40 craft and trade stalls, main ring entertainment, birds of prey and much more!
There will be an abundance of local food, drink and entertainment. We are excited that country music artists Jax & Co will be playing among other performers, plus Chocks Away will be dancing throughout the day showing off their skills in Jive, Swing and Lindy Hop.
