Excitement is building ahead of the Reepham Classic Car Festival, which will draw around 100 classic cars to the town’s centre.

The Market Place will be closed to traffic on the day of the festival - Sunday, September 24.

Hugh Ivins, co-organiser, said cars on show would include a rare Aston Martin, Lamborgini Urraco, Jaguar XK150S, 1930 Renault, 1936 Aubern, a Rolls and six Alvis cars from 1936 to 1964. 

Mr Irvins said there would also be “the usual favourites” from Austin Morris, Rover, Triumph and Lotus makes, as well as European and American carmakers such as Chrysler, Pontiac and Cadillac.

The Mirov 2 featured by Norwich Union and Ronart V12 will also be on display. 

He said: “Come and see them all for yourself and enjoy a great family day out.

“The festival opens to the public at 11am and ends at 4pm. 

“There will be Lilwall's hog roast, Dann's Ices and Hot Donut stalls and the Kings Arms, Dial House and other premises will be open during the festival.”

There will also be fundraising for East Anglian Air Ambulance.
