Sewerby Hall and Gardens hosts the Spring Gathering of the East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club this weekend.

Visitors will get the chance to view the many historic vehicles on display and chat with their owners.

The event takes place on Sunday 19 May between 11am and 4pm.

Based in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the EYTCC is a regional club for owners and enthusiasts of all types of motor transport which are part of our motoring heritage.

The club caters for all forms of vehicles, including motorcycles, from Veteran and Vintage through to Post Historic, from 1900 onwards.

The club provides a social and practical environment to promote and encourage the ownership, maintenance, use, enjoyment and restoration of all the above forms of transport.

The vehicles date between 1920 and the late 1980s and some of the cars included on the day are likely to include the Austin 7, Morris 8, Standard Vanguard, Austin Cambridge, Morris Minor, Morris Oxford, Humber Supersnipe, Humber Hawk, Rover P5 and P6, Ford Cortina and Ford Granada.

Mixed voice choir, Cadenza will also be performing a program of popular songs in the Orangery on Sunday at 2pm.

A regular to Sewerby Hall and Gardens, Lynn Corkery’s spinning demonstrations offer an insight into the basics of weaving through to the advanced skill of lace making. Lynn can be found in the Swinton Room between 11am and 3pm.

Not only will visitors be able to watch the process first hand, Lynn also encourages a ‘have-a-go’ approach. Lynn believes that it is important that these skills are not lost, and by doing what she does, she hopes to create a memory that children and parents will remember forever.

Admission charges to Sewerby Hall and Gardens apply but there is no additional charge to attend these events.

Adults £4.80, over 60s £4.20, children (three-15) £3, and family tickets (two adults and two children) £15. Season passes are also available.
