Va-Va-Vroom to Woburn Abbey

THIS May Bank Holiday, Woburn Abbey will play host to the 14th Bedfordshire Classic Motor Show.

Hundreds of motoring marvels, from Austins to Wolseleys, will be parked up for perusal, including this beauty on the right, the Armstrong Siddeley Whitley Landaulette.

The only example of its type, it is the very same one used by the Queen on her Commonwealth tour of 1953. Cars aside and other attractions will include a Kids Zone, Go Karts, a picnicking area and trade stands.

The show will bring some va-va-vroom on Sunday and Monday, 10am – 5pm daily.

Admission is £8, over 65s get in for £7 and accompanied under 14s go free.
