On Sunday, May 27 more than 700 people travelled to The Burston Crown, near Diss to enjoy a day of classic cars, vintage petrol pumps and live music.

More than 100 cars of varying makes and age parked up on Burston Common whilst Peter Hyde from Diss Ironworks also put on a display of vintage petrol pumps including a very rare ‘tiger in the tank’ pump.

Live music was provided by Ludlum Pikes and Charlie Harper Blues Band.

Bev Kembery, owner of the Burston Crown said the day had been ‘amazing’: “We were blessed by amazing weather and were able to raise a lot of money for Burston School at the same time.”
