Classic Car Day 2023 is another classic hit

Classic Car Day 2023 in the Tuesday Market Place, King's Lynn.

Published: Monday, 11th September 2023

The Tuesday Market Place hosted over 200 classic cars on Sunday 10 September as part of Heritage Open Day.

The Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk’s popular event was the most successful ever, with all the free spaces booked out months ago. Watch the cars arrive below.

A wide variety of vehicles were on show, dating from a 1928 Austin 7 Chummy and Ford Model A Hotrod to a 2013 Dodge Challenger RT.

Cllr Simon Ring, Cabinet Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing said:

“Once again our Classic Car Day has proved popular. More than 200 amazing vehicles were glistening in the sunshine. The whole town was packed thanks to all the activities taking place for Heritage Open Day, which is organised by King’s Lynn Civic Society.

“It was wonderful to see so many historic buildings open their doors and The Walks was hosting re-enactments, falconry displays, archery and more. I thank the many volunteers and our council staff who made this possible, especially as it all took place on one of the hottest days of the year.”

The best pre-70’s classic car winner was the 1969 Bedford CA Van, owned by Ryan Dearing from Bourne.

Heritage Open Day, organised by King’s Lynn Civic Society, celebrated local history and architecture and gave people the chance to explore a range of fascinating buildings and gardens, not usually open to the public.
