Heveningham Country Fair

Mid July saw a return to Heveningham Hall for the Heveningham Country Fair and Wings and Wheels with Phoenix CVC. Always a good show and usually good weather but not kind to us this year.
We met up at Flixton Air Museum for a quick 12 mile convoy to Hevingham, a varied range of sports cars from an old Lotus 7 to a Porsche.

We set off from Flixton, all cars nice and shiny only for it to rain on the way, and on the private road into Heveningham Hall Estate we all got muddy, some more muddy than others as they did not slow down, that would be me then!
We quickly got the shelter up before the routine intake of Bacon butties and Coffee's. The weather did dry up for most of the day which was a relief.
Rain eased off.
We did the tour of the lovely grounds, had tea on the lawns, looked at the lovely flower displays in the Orangery, and visited the various craft marquees and stalls dotted around the event ring.

After lunch and Pimm's we where entertained by the Breitling Wing Walkers and the Silence Twister Aerobatic Team. Unfortunately the weather kept quite a lot of the private planes from attending the annual fly in. Photo's from the websites.

Other attractions included Dog displays, Suffolk Punch Horses, Motorcycle stunts, Jousting, and Birds of Prey along with displays of selected cars touring the ring.
Later we looked around some of the cars on display, a mix of classic and sports cars.

When it came to packing up time there was a very heavy downpour so it was a wet Event Shelter stuffed in the boot of one of the Jags. Despite the weather another good day with a friendly car club.
