Fun Day

Bring the family and enjoy a fabulous day out! Bouncy castles and games for the children; a large range of stalls for mum to browse and vintage cars and tractors from all over Norfolk and Suffolk to interest dad. When you’re worn out with the excitement sit and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake from the tea tent, burgers, hotdog's and delicious hog roast from Pepperell’s barbeque or a thirst-quenching pint from the bar (kindly supplied by the Swan Hotel). There will be also be an ice-cream van. This year get up close and personal with heavy horses. Come and meet Raymond, a Shire and Hamish and Harry the Percherons and enjoy a wagon ride too. The wagon is equipped to take disabled passengers so no-one need miss out. Don Westgate will be entertaining you on the stage with music from the 40s to 70s. Weather and operational commitments permitting, there should be a fly over by the Lancaster bomber of the Battle of Britain Memorial flight, arranged by RAFA. Local vintage and classic cars and tractors will parade on an extended route this year through the streets of Harleston. Drivers and passengers in period dress. All the sounds, smells and excitement of the early days of motoring. Make sure that you’re there to see the parade. Vintage and Classic Car and Tractor owners from all over Norfolk and Suffolk will bring their beloved vehicles for a spectacular parade through Harleston and onto the Recreation Ground to open the Family Fun Day.
