The throaty roar of classic car and motorbike engines will flood the Market Place in Reepham on Sunday, September 28 as the first Reepham Festival of Classic Cars and Bikes rolls into town.
Peter Fitzjohn and Brian Hope, who are on the organising committee of the popular annual Reepham Music Festival, have teamed up with fellow classic car enthusiast Michael Pender-Cudlip to plan an event assembled around selected classic car marques, such as Rolls Royce, MG, Triumph/TR, Porsche, Lotus and Jaguar, along with motorbikes of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The Festival will also feature outstanding examples of other favourites such as the powerful AC Cobra, American 'muscle cars' and historic military vehicles.
Local traders will be providing food and drink for the many visitors it is hoped the Festival will attract.
The Town Council has agreed the town centre will be closed to through traffic for the day, which means that visitors can view the gathered classic vehicles in safety.
Mr Fitzjohn said: 'We're hoping to show the lifespan of each marque, with an example of the most important models to illustrate the vehicle's evolution. Space is limited, with the numbers of car and motorcycles already booked to attend, but entries are very welcome from classic car owners across the region, especially if they have that particularly rare vehicle that seldom sees the light of day.'
The event is open to the public between 11am and 4.30pm.
