A classic car rally is set to drive in to Swaffham this weekend - almost 20 years after it was last staged.

Norfolk Vehicle Club and Swaffham Town Council will host the event in the town’s recreation ground, on Sunday, August 27, from 10am to 4pm.

As well as a display of cars and motorbikes, the family fun day will also include a beer tent, fairground and face-painting.

And everyone is invited to take part.

Motorists are invited to show off their vintage vehicles. There is no age or category restrictions on entrants, and entry is free.

Last staged in 1998, it has been organised to raise money for a new skate park in Swaffham, and will include a £200 prize draw. And organisers are keen to keep to a vintage theme,

Bargain hunters can also enjoy a car boot sale and stalls.

Free parking is available opposite the recreation ground and in Theatre Street car park.
