The project is the vision of Simon Hughes and his family, who already run Burt's Girls Coffee Co in Dereham and Burt's Boyz car group.

Both ventures are named in tribute of Mr Hughes' father, who went by the name Burt and had a passion for cars himself.

Mr Hughes' said: "It's going to be really exciting - there has been a lot of talk about it.

"It's mainly to help pull in trade for the shopping centre and other shops in town.

"But you never know, this could lead to a premium car event in the future."

Cars and Caffeine will run from 9am until midday and entry is free.

Parking is available in Dereham Shopping Centre.
