Video of last years event to tempt you!! No limit on numbers, so book now!
The Bunbury Arms on the 26th July was a jolly affair! Luckily the showers were short lived so the Morris Dancers could perform outside! Nice to see Peters Lancia Delta too, the second one I came across in the space of two hours!
National Alfa Day, 7th August. Bicester Heritage Centre
For those not coming to Helming and looking for a good Alfa day out, don’t forget NAD at Bicester, see below for details, tickets still available!
ENTRIES CLOSED Sunday 7th August Helmingham Hall Festival of Classic and Sports Cars 2022 Helmingham is simple, I have booked a stand for 30 cars, £10’s to me in advance to save a spot, more details will of course follow. PS I don’t get to keep the tenners they all go to Helmingham as I have to pay up front in advance! Please remember, as the event is open to the public, their public liability insurance restricts any car movements off the club stands between 10am and 4pm. https://www.helmingham.com/events/the-festival-of-classic-sports-cars/
If you’ve not been before see the video below;
Sunday August 21st Suffolk Drive 8.30/9am meet at Walkers Snacks A1065 Barton Mills, Bury St Edmunds IP28 6AE then a drive via one of Malcolm’s devious and infamous Tulip road books to arrive at West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village and Country Park Icklingham Rd, Bury Saint Edmunds IP28 6HG for a visit back to an earlier time! Perhaps a panini in the café and a walk round the park!
Sunday 4th September Classics at Glemham 2022, Glemham is a bit different this year, you have to pay via the website and then download and print your tickets to display on your windscreen coming in. There will be two entrances, your ticket colour (see later) will dictate the directions and entrances you use. ( entry will be via the main drive opposite Buttons Lane) There have already been some problems with incorrect ticket booking. Please remember, like Helmingham, as the event is open to the public, their public liability insurance restricts any car movements off the club stands between 10am and 4pm
