Lavenham Classics

Read all about it – the sun shone on our 2019 event

Thank you to you all who came and supported our 2019 event – over 150 vehicles were displayed ranging from a selection of pre-war cars including a Bugatti 1932 Type 51 Grand Prix car up to a brand new, limited edition McLaren 600LT Spyder and almost every other make that you could think of.

Food and drink was available and many of you enjoyed a picnic under August blue skies – whilst a local musician played songs to help us relax.

This Year’s event raised £3000 for local charities

The fantastic sum of over £1,200 was raised from donations on the day bringing this year’s total amount raised to almost £3,000. Double that raised last year and well in excess of my target of £2,000.

So a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone who attended, exhibited and of course to the volunteers.

All monies raised go to Lavenham Community Council, a registered charity that distributes funds to good causes within the area as well as funding the village community facilities.

Bruce Goddard, event organiser adds: “I moved into Lavenham in 2016 and as a life long classic car enthusiast/collector/racer volunteered to put on a car show for the charity when the Carnival ceased.

The event is now focused on being a lower key village event with a relaxed atmosphere and it is my intention to keep it that way.

For future years the number of cars on show will be restricted [as it was this year] to ensure that there is no crowding and that there is adequate visitor parking.

The event is ever evolving and arrangements are already underway for next year when it is hoped that a number of additional attractions can be incorporated aimed at our younger visitors.”

Entry forms for next year’s event will be available in early 2020.
