More than 200 cars were also on show at the first Rocky's Road event, which was held on Aylsham recreation ground, on Sunday, July 14.

The festival was organised by 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 was held in his honour, and raised money for Kidney Care UK, which supported our family in times of need."

The day also included live music, stalls, and a vintage aircraft flypast.
