Hundreds of classic cars from all over the county will be lining up at Sheringham’s main car park on Sunday, for the start of North Norfolk Classic Vehicle Club’s (NNCVC) annual St George’s Day run.

The event, which is sponsored by Anglia Car Auctions of Kings Lynn, is held as part of the Federation of British Vehicle Club initiative Drive it Day, and raises upwards of £5,000 a year for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Cars, ranging from a 1917 Model T Ford, to a brand new Aston Martin DB11, will set off to Holkham Hall from Station Road car park at 9am on Sunday.

NNVC secretary Roy Beckley said organisers were expecting a record turnout this year.

“The run gives enthusiasts a chance to drive their historic vehicles and marks the start of the classic vehicle season,” he added.
