Diss Heritage Transport Fayre 2018.
Sunday August 12th will see the fourth annual Diss Heritage Transport Fayre, organised and run by the Diss Heritage Traders Group. The fayre has grown every year, and this year it will be even bigger and better, as vehicles will be displayed not only in the Heritage Triangle, but also in Mere Street and the Market Place.
The historic town centre will be graced with wonderful classic cars, vintage commercial vehicles, bygone public service transport, motor cycles, bikes, pedal cars etc, and as before the 1940’s petrol filling station will again pop up at the entrance to Cobbs Yard, in Saint Nicholas Street.
Vehicle owners are being encouraged to wear suitable dress, to match the era of their motors, and prizes will be awarded to those whose period costume is considered the best in keeping with their classic vehicle.
Music will be provided by The Diss Ukaholics ensemble, Morris dancers, Organ grinders and street musicians.
The town’s cafes, restaurants, deli’s, pubs and shops will open for the day and along with street food vendors, no one need go hungry.
The Heritage wildlife garden and Mere boardwalk are major attractions, in the Triangle, where you can actually walk on water! The wonderful Corn Hall recently restored and extended will host a display of period motor cycles, in the courtyard.
There is something for everyone, young or old and the theme for the day is step back in time.
Anyone wishing to display a vehicle or would like to help on the day, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Peter Hyde on 01379 741414.
