The Bentley S3 was bought by Mr Epstein following the band's hugely successful American tour in 1964, and is rarely seen by the public.

The Rocky's Road festival has been organised by Aylsham's Paul Moore, whose father Peter played bass guitar for Ricky and the Hucklebucks when they supported the Beatles in Norwich at the Grosvenor Arms in 1963. Peter's nickname was Rocky.

Mr Moore said: "Dad always loved rock'n'roll and classic cars. The event will be held in his honour, and will raise money for Kidney Care UK, which supported our family in times of need."

The day will also include live music, food, drink, stalls, and a vintage aircraft flypast.

It will be held on Aylsham recreation ground, Sir Williams Lane, from 12pm to 6pm on Sunday, July 14.
