Vintage Stony Vehicle Festival
1st January at 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
New Year’s Day event showcases pre-1940 cars and bikes, which have pride of place in the Market Square. Expect to ‘see’ a great deal of Vintage cars and bikes and even a few commercials. Expect to ‘hear’ a cacophony of engines as we celebrate the New Year with ‘one minutes noise’ at midday, followed at 12.30 by our unmissable awards presentation. Expect to ‘eat and drink’ at one of the many pubs and restaurants and stalls that open up especially to welcome you.
Its free for entrants and spectators but the events Team do collect donations for Willen Hospice. We are informed that they need to raise an astonishing 4.7 million a year to make it all happen, so please give generously – every little helps and any donation no matter how small will be gratefully received.
This year belistore are situated in the main square serving our warm pastries, illy coffee and blow torch toasted marshmallow, Madagascan infused hot chocolate and dry cured, oak smoked streaky bacon served in a warm bagel.
