About the Event


Held in association with the Suffolk Vehicle Enthusiasts Club (SVEC). Over 7,000 people attended the 2016 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 driveway runs throughout the day.

Over 900 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 magnificent back drop 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 mini Land Rovers for children to drive, fairground stalls, over 40 craft and trade stalls, main ring entertainment, birds of prey and much, much more!

There will be an abundance of local food, drink and entertainment plus Chocks Away will be dancing throughout the day showing off their skills in Jive, Swing and Lindy Hop.

Tickets available to purchase online.
