As the primary sponsor of The Festival of Classic and Sports Cars at Helmingham Hall, we found yesterday’s event to be an incredible experience that allowed car enthusiasts and families alike to celebrate and enjoy a huge collection of automotive design and history.

Hosted within the picturesque grounds of Helmingham Hall, The Festival of Classic and Sports Cars proved to be a big success. Despite the unpredictable and ever-changing weather, we were lucky enough to enjoy several spells of warm sunshine with only a couple of short (but rather heavy) downpours.

On the Bridge Classic Cars stand, we displayed a range of classic cars including our very special 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 which is available to win in our biggest ever competition to date.

Highlights of The Festival Of Classic And Sports Cars

  • Diverse Collection Of Cars: Visitors to the show got to see an eclectic range of classic and sports cars. They were also treated to the beautiful cars being displayed and driven up the stunning driveway of the hall gardens. From modern sports cars all the way back to some very early classics, there was something for everyone with a passion for cars to look at.
  • Expert And Specialist Vendors: As the event’s primary sponsor, Bridge Classic Cars brought our expertise and passion to the thousands of people who came to see us. The team had a great time engaging with so many fellow car enthusiasts. In addition to our competition cars, we also had some examples of our handmade interior trim work on display too. Other stands included those selling sweets, pet accessories, children’s toys and accessories, plants, and so much more. Our friends from Vint-tro also had a presence as did the Suffolk Vehicle Enthusiasts Club, who helped oversee the event alongside the Helmingham Hall team.
  • Family-Friendly Activities: The festival catered to all members of the family, offering activities such as live entertainment, dancing, food stalls, and it was also dog-friendly! The atmosphere throughout the day was vibrant and extremely positive.
  • Community Engagement: The Festival of Classic and Sports Cars provided a platform for enthusiasts to come together to share their passion and enthusiasm. We were impressed by how well the owners of the cars on display cared for their vehicles and we loved seeing them up close. Money was being raised for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) which is a fantastic cause, and one we are extremely happy to help support.
