Held at Earsham Hall on Sunday, April 30, the rally is now in its fifth year and attracts classic vehicle enthusiasts from all over East Anglia.

The main categories for judging will be cars, American, military, tractors, heavy commercial and motorcycles, encompassing all eras and styles. One vehicle doing a special 'rev-up' will be a 1958 Hotrod called The Beast.

And as well as hundreds of vehicles and their proud owners, there will be craft and retail stalls, autojumbles, food stands and a licensed bar. Earsham Hall's own cafe, gift shop and furniture showrooms will also be open.

Live music will come from The X-Men, Bobby Graham and Mitchel Scott, and for the children there will be a bouncy castle, Punch and Judy, face painting and games.

The event is organised by Bungay Lions Club members, who are all volunteers, with help from other local Lions branches. This year members of Topcroft Cricket Club will also be helping as a thank you for the continuing support they have received from the Lions.

Over the past five years the rally has raised thousands of pounds for good causes, including Bungay Medical Practice, the Bungay St John Ambulance, Bact community transport and defibrillators for the town. This year's main recipient is Falcon Meadow Community Trust, responsible for maintaining, improving and promoting the 4.2 acre area of historic water meadow alongside the river Waveney between Bungay and Ditchingham.
