Hundreds of classic cars went on show near Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday (August 26th) at the Mark Moor International Vehicle Festival.

Members of the village’s Community Association organised the popular display, which was held besides Mark Village Hall.

The event was opened by Michael Penn, the Curatorial Director of Haynes Motor Museum, along with overall organiser Bruce Penrose.

“This year’s show featured in excess of 300 display vehicles ranging from classic, vintage, military and agricultural cars, motorbikes and lorries to today’s latest showroom family cars,” a spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The event was hailed a success after attracting a crowd of over 1,000 spectators – helped by a day of brilliant summer sunshine.

Burnham’s MP Tessa Munt is pictured sitting in a 1953 Sunbeam Alpine, owned by Portishead enthusiast Cliff Richards who has owned the vehicle for two years and has fully restored it.
