"Attendees will be able to enjoy listening to Hexham Brass, enjoy an ice cream from Tony's Ices Ponteland and a BBQ provided by Scott's Catering & Hog Roasts.

"Cars attending the show will range from pre-war classics right up to modern supercars.

"Many local car enthusiasts and car clubs are due to attend the event.

"We have more than 50 cars registered so far.

"Everyone is welcome to turn up on the day.

"2022 promises to be even bigger and better."
