Classic cars sparkled in the sunshine on Saturday as crowds flocked to a show in the North Herts countryside.

The Letchworth Garden City Classic & Vintage Transport Picnic saw more than 300 vehicles on display at Fairclough Hall Farm in Halls Green.

Lively toe-tapping music from Herts-based band Fifth Wheel provided the soundtrack for the event, which saw Derek Chapman’s Jensen prototype – the only one of its kind in the world – named the ‘car of the show’.

Also on display was a Routemaster bus that will be driven to Japan in 2017, Bugatti, Frazer-Nash, Ferrari and Maserati models, and an array of classic and vintage bicycles.

The event’s committee chairman, David Davis, called the show ‘a great success’ and said local charities stand to benefit once costs are covered.
