Fans of vintage and classic cars from around the region will be making a bee line for Woodhorn Museum this weekend.

Members of the North of England Classic and Pre War Automobile Club (formerly the North East Club for Pre War Austins) will be gathering at the museum on Sunday to show off their fine motors and meet old friends.

Dozens of stunning vehicles, all polished and gleaming, are expected to attend the event from the quintessential vintage car such as the classic Austin to more recent motors produced by Rover and MG.

Woodhorn’s Liz Ritson said: “The club’s aim to encourage the restoration and regular use of historic motor vehicles produced over 18 years ago, so almost every visitor, except perhaps the very youngest, will recognise and identify some of the cars.

“I’m sure people will take the opportunity to find out more about the beautiful vehicles on site but also to share their own knowledge and experience of old cars.

“With over 50 cars expected to take part in the event, and fingers crossed for many more with fine weather, the rally provides an excellent opportunity for photography.

“Visitors should be able to capture wonderful photographs, especially with the pit wheels and listed former colliery buildings in the background.”

The event begins at 11am and the cars will be on site until 4pm. Admission is free but the normal Woodhorn parking charge is payable for visitors.
