Hundreds of classic cars and motorcycles are to go on show at a Suffolk village green as part of a popular annual event known for its relaxed atmosphere and eclectic mix of vehicles.
Friston’s Classics on the Green returns on Thursday, July 6, when owners of vehicles dating back from before 1970 are invited to display their vintage pride and joy.
Tony Morley, who is one of the event organisers, said he was hoping for around 250 cars, 100 bikes and a couple of steam engines.
“People seem to enjoy the laid back atmosphere of these events,” he added.
Cars on display in previous years have include a Model T Ford, Bugatti and Jaguar E-Type, with owners visiting from across the Eastern region.
The event runs from 3pm into the evening with collections held in aid of St Mary’s Church in the village.
There will also be a pop up bar on the green and the Old Chequers pub will be open.
