Vintage, classic and iconic vehicles from the last 100 years will be on display on the Tuesday Market Place on Sunday, September 15 (10am - 4pm).

The show is one of west Norfolk's most popular events, attracting thousands of car enthusiasts to the town.

It is part of Heritage Open Day, when historic buildings in and around Lynn are open to the public.

Graham Middleton, the borough council's cabinet member for business development, said: "Classic Car Day is one of our most successful events, and we're delighted with the demand we've had for places.
