World-class motor cars, vintage aeroplanes and pigs? We can’t think of anywhere else you’d come across all of this, other than Heveningham Concours.
An grand showcase for both the petrol head and countryside enthusiast, the event returns to Suffolk’s Heveningham Hall on 22-23 June. With all proceeds going to charity it’s a trip out of London that is worth taking.
The grounds will play host to a quintessentially British country fair featuring: Joseph’s Amazing Racing Pigs, Sheep Show and Tractor Parade. At the rear end of the property is a whole other kettle of sheep (sorry…), where some truly spectacular cars will be on display.
The stage is actually a series of dramatic grass terraces designed by landscape architect Kim Wilkie creating a lush green amphitheater where the cars are the actors and we are the audience.
Cars, cars and more cars. As well as 10 beautiful Bentleys, other cars already confirmed for this year’s show include the Mullin’s ‘Million Franc’ Delahaye, not one but two Bugatti Type 57s plus, a Bugatti Type 35B Ferrari 512S and 512BB. Also appearing will be no fewer than two cars owned by gentleman racing driver, Bentley aficionado and one of the founders of the Bentley Drivers Club, Forrest Lycett.
Heveningham Concours also has lots of local food and drink stalls dotted around the estate, as well as live music throughout the weekend. Although this event is sure to attract the car fanatics, Heveningham Concours is the perfect weekend for anyone who tags along. Just don’t forget to pack your wellingtons.
