A vast collection of vintage motor vehicles dating back to the early 20th Century will descend on the Heritage Centre in Gaydon on Sunday for this year’s Banbury Run.

Organised by the Vintage Motor Cycle Club (VMCC), about 500 entries are expected to attend the event which starts at 10am, with the heritage centre museum opens from 10am until 5pm. There will even be some cars dating back to 1899, including a De Dion Bouton and a Leon Bollee.

More than 100 autojumble pitches will be on show and free parking will be available near the heritage centre’s main entrance.

Tickets cost £6 in advance or £8 on the day. For more information call 01926 645033
