Petrolheads are in for a treat next month as a classic car show with live bands, a beer festival and street food in tow is coming to north Norfolk.

The Broads Motor Mania will bring more than 150 vintage vehicles to Sutton Staithe Hotel in Stalham on Saturday, July 30.

The event is being held by Jessica's Wish to raise money for East Anglia's Children's Hospice (EACH).

Fundraiser Sue Goreham, alongside husband Robert, started Jessica's Wish in 2014 in memory of their daughter who was stillborn in 2006.

Since then they have been organising regular fundraising events raising money for EACH and other charities close to their hearts. 

"We can't wait to invite people along to Broads Motor Mania and we have so much in store for visitors.

"There will be nearly 160 classic cars, including an American fire engine and the hotel is also hosting a beer festival during the event.
