A popular vintage car event is set to roll into Hartlepool this weekend.

The Northern Bygones Society is holding its annual historical vehicle show at Tesco, in Belle Vue Way, on Sunday.

The Northern Bygones Society Vintage & Classic Car Show will be held this weekend.

The Northern Bygones Society Vintage & Classic Car Show will be held this weekend.

The day – which is expected to attract a range of vehicles and is popular with enthusuasts – starts at 10am and runs until around 3pm when the best vehicles will be chosen from the selection.

Organisers staging the vintage and classic car show say there will be vehicles dating from the 1930s to the 2000s.

Paul Jackson, of the Northern Bygones Society, says there will be a variety of vehicles including MGs, Morris, Fords, British Leylands, American cars and many more.

There will be a bucket collection for Diabetes UK and The British Heart Foundation, which are being supported by the organisation this year.

A presentation of the best vehicles in show will be held at 3pm.

Mr Jackson said previous shows have been a huge success.

He said: “We’ve got vehicles from just about every decade.

“They’ll bring back lots of memories for older visitors, while youngsters will really enjoy seeing how automotives have changed over the years.”

“The society stages up to 15 car shows a year and Hartlepool is a hugely popular area for the society.

“If you would like to show your own vintage or classic vehicle then please just turn up on the day.”
