Around 800 cars were on display on the showground at Stonham Barns, near Stowmarket, attracting thousands of people on Sunday.

Alan Forward, owner of Stonham Barns, said: “We had 800 cars, which was up on last year, and if we had better weather I think we would have had even more cars.

“But we had a good gate. It is a really strong event and we didn’t have any complaints.”

Live bands provided a musical backdrop to proceedings while bargain-hunters could also look round a vintage market.

Mr Forward added: “We have had a lot of comments saying how Stonham Barns has improved in general over recent years. We have a lot more shops and the car boot sale was very busy on Saturday morning.

“We are looking forward to next year’s event now.”
