Classic Cars by the Lake vehicle registration


More than 5,000 people flock to this annual event to celebrate their passion for motoring

Now in its tenth year, we believe the show has grown into one of East Anglia’s most successful car shows. More than 600 vehicles go on display, made up of individual owners and car clubs, including vintage, pre-war, post-war, classic, modern and super cars, motor bikes and commercial vehicles, which attract more than 5,000 visitors throughout the day. A team of 20 judges view each car throughout the event and select the best from each category to receive awards later in the day.

Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake was the idea of Andrew and Gina Long in 2010. The event has been organised and run by The St Nicholas Hospice Special Events Committee plus a number of other key volunteers with the sole intention of raising funds with 100% going to the St Nicholas Hospice Care, based in Bury St Edmunds, providing key services in and around West Suffolk and Thetford. Since its conception the event has raised in excess of £290,000 for the Hospice with the event growing in size, quality and fundraising year on year.

It’s a great day out for all the family and in aid of a great local charity with 100% of the proceeds going to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

We suggest a minimum donation of £10 per vehicle. This is optional. Monies kindly donated are greatly appreciated. 100% of all money raised from the event goes to the Hospice.

For any enquiries about vehicle registration, please email Karen Ridgeon at or call 07830 468228. 

We look forward to seeing you.
