Kings Lynn heritage day includes 50 historic buildings open with free vintage bus service between them.
To coincide with Heritage Open Day, Tuesday Market Place will once again host King’s Lynn’s Classic Car Day. Over 200 vehicles are expected to take part in this year’s event, representing a wide cross-section of motoring history. Amongst many booked to appear in the headlights for 2016, is a 1904 Oldsmobile Curvedash that once featured in the musical Genevieve and has recently completed the world famous London to Brighton vintage car run. Alongside, there will be a display of vehicles that have become synonymous with the 1930’s including a Riley Monaco, a Morris Isis Coupe, and several other vintage Austin Morrises, plus a variety of Fords from the era. Iconic examples from the 50’s and 60’s, such as Wolseleys, Vauxhalls, Singers, Hillmans and Sunbeams will adorn the Tuesday Market Place for all to view their splendour. Many of the cars on display are over eighty years old, and each and every one comes with a tale to tell. Stories of forgotten wrecks recovered from barns, and painstakingly restored to their former glory, pay testament to the passion and dedication of the car enthusiast, making Classic Car Day a day of motoring nostalgia. Once again the Les Daubney Memorial Trophy, personally sponsored by Councillor Nick Daubney in memory of his late father, will be presented to the car considered to be Best In Show, and the public will be invited to cast a vote too!
