Festival of Classic and Sports Cars
Sunday 3rd August 2014: 10:00am - 5:00pm

Held in association with the Suffolk Vehicle Enthusiasts Club (SVEC). Over 5,000 people attended the 2013 festival. The event attracts classic and sports car owners who exhibit their cars some of which parade up and down the main drive on the two concourse runs throughout the day.
Over 700 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 a Ford Mustang as well as Ferraris’ and Porsche.

This amazing collection of vehicles is displayed against the magnificent back drop of Helmingham Hall and its surrounding moat which sits in the middle of the ancient deer park.

Calling all Motorcycle Clubs...WE NEED YOU!
In addition to classic & sports cars we would very much welcome local motorcycle clubs to exhibit with us. Thanks to the 2013 attendees we had a great start to this display but would welcome many more! Please email us for a motorcycle club booking form.

As well as this impressive display of vehicles there will be main ring entertainment, craft and trade stalls, birds of prey, lots of live music and great local food & drink!

The 2013 event made a £4,500 donation to EACH - Ipswich Children’s Hospice www.each.org.uk

Car exhibitors have given very generous over the past 9 years and we hope that with the 2014 Festival we will be able to make an even greater donation. It is possible to make a donation with your classic car entry or as a visitor on the day at the EACH stand.
