About Helmingham Festival of Classics and Sports Cars

This amazing collection of vehicles is displayed against the magnificent back drop of Helmingham Hall and its surrounding moat which sits in the middle of the ancient deer park.Dress to Impress! Do you own a classic vehicle and want to show how you would have dressed in that era? Then why not come along in your car wearing your vintage fashion and display all that was great from that time period. We will be running a competition for the ‘best dressed’ and would like to see a range of participants displaying styles from throughout the years – from demob suits, full skirts and petticoats to flares, we’d love to see you dress to impress. There will be an abundance of local food, drink and entertainment. We are excited that country music artists Sam Coe & The Long Shadows will be performing among other performers, plus Chocks Away will be dancing throughout the day showing off their skills in Jive, Swing and Lindy Hop.
