Classic cars, vintage stalls and family-activities are about to fill Wymondham as the town gets ready for its second annual Vintage Day.

Jazz and brass musicians will help take visitors back to the days of yesteryear at the event, which takes place on Sunday (September 10), 10am-4pm at Market Place, the baptist church, Central Hall and other spots around the town.

Suzanne Nuri from organisers, Wymondham Town Team, said: 'This year's Vintage Day is even bigger than last year with over 90 classic vehicles coming along including a vintage tractor, and we have two vintage buses this year, with a red double decker joining the vintage bus we had running last year. We are hoping people will come along dressed in their favourite era and get into the spirit of the event.

'We live in a lovely town and this event will bring together not only local people but also people from far and wide to visit Wymondham for the day.'

Lots of vintage fun in store

The event will start at 10am at the Market Cross and various locations nearby. This includes the Baptist Church which will host Memory Lane displays, and children's activities will take place at Priory Gardens near Middleton Street with a range of old-fashioned toys and games to keep youngsters amused.

Families can also follow the Great Wymondham Mystery Trail which will offer a special first prize to whoever solves the clues.

Jazz music will be provided by Those Darn Mouldy Figs and there will be some brass band sounds from Cawston Brass Band.

For history buffs, there will be guided walks with Georgette Vale in the guise of Wymondham's first woman councillor Ethel Gooch.

And this year will also feature a Cake-Off competition, and a Tea Dance at Central Hall.

Though most activities are free, Town Team members will be shaking buckets and encouraging visitors to donate their spare cash on the day so future events like this can take place again.

The event will be from 10am until 4pm. For further information, see Wymondham Town Team's Facebook page.
