There’s a Father’s Day feast of motoring history, a flypast and a fun packed day out at the Haynes 100 on Sunday.

The event celebrates over 100 years of motor manufacturing and over 130 classic cars, plus vintage motor-cycles will be on display at the Village Hall Playing Field before taking part in a 2.7 mile Motor Cavalcade through and around the Village from 2pm to 3.30pm.

The Motor display is supported by a full programme of traditional entertainment and activities including a fun dog show, music from the Bedford Pipe Band, dance display, side-shows, a ‘Kids Country’ feature, over 30 stalls, refreshments and beer tent. All proceeds are in aid of the Village Hall Charity.

A major highlight will be a flypast by an iconic Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

The ‘100’ is open from 11am to 5pm. Admission is £2 for adults and free for accompanied under 16s. There is public parking space on the playing field, but drivers are asked to arrive before 2pm as road closures will apply during the Cavalcade.
