Gallery: Lavenham Carnival celebrates vintage year
PICTURE-POSTCARD Lavenham was packed yesterday as crowds converged on the village to enjoy its annual carnival and vintage and classic motor show.
Held on Lavenham Playing Fields, the event, now in its 15th year, remains as popular as ever as it continues to raise money for local charities administered by the Sudbury and District Round Table.
“We’ve been really pleased with the turn-out,“ said key organiser Tim West. “We’ve got around 500 vintage and classic cars of all types on display today and lots of family fun in the top field.
“What makes this event special is the sheer variety of cars on show from vehicles worth in excess of �1million to small cars like the Austin 1100. All interesting cars and special in their own right.”
Perhaps the oldest car on show was a 1901 Locomobile steam car which, said owner Stephen Ward of Glemsford, always turns heads.
