The afternoon will host a classic MG car collection on show for everyone who appreciates how great the car is through time. Alongside this you can enjoy a children’s entertainment area* featuring a mini-waltzer, bouncy castle, face painting and lots more.

Grab a bite to eat from one of the delicious local food traders or enjoy a Pimm’s on the lower lawn whilst cheering the run competitors across the finish line.

The bar, stocking local brews, will stay open into the evening when the entertainment is provided from the brilliant musical talent of;

  • Java Jam

All proceeds from this event go towards projects to benefit the local community.
