AN ANNUAL car show is taking place this Bank Holiday.

Stamfordham Classic and Sports Car Show will take place on Monday (August 30) at Stamfordham Cricket Club.

The show began in 2016 when the village's fayre was revived.

In its first year, around 25 classic cars parked on the village green.

Event organiser James Freeman-Griffith said the event "has sort of got a bit bigger every year"

"Last year we had around 100 cars turn up," he said.

James said around 70 cars have already registered, with more expected to turn up on the day.

Although last year's fayre did not go ahead, the car show was able to do so.

The village fayre will also not take place this year.

"At that time, a lot of car shows had been cancelled, so I think we got quite a lot of people to turn up who otherwise would have been at other events or who wouldn't have known about this one," James said.

"Hopefully next year we'll get the village fayre back and running again as well."

Food vendors Fire and Dough and Frost's Fish and Chips, along with Tony's Ices from Ponteland will be at the event.

Hexham Brass will also be performing.

The show will take place between 12pm and 4pm.

The event will be free to attend but organisers will be asking for donations on the day.

Funds raised will go to Stamfordham Primary School, the village hall and St Mary's Church in the village.
