On Sunday 12th May 2019, Stody Lodge Gardens will extend a special welcome to a wide range of classic vehicle lovers for its spectacular May-flowering season.  The Stody Classic Vehicles Day 2019 will be a great gathering of classic vehicles of all varieties.

This event, now in its second year, is back by popular demand after hundreds of classic vehicle owners braved grey skies on 13th May 2018 to enjoy a wonderful day of motors, homemade teas and beautiful gardens.

Stody Lodge Gardens near Holt in North Norfolk has become increasingly popular as a destination for car lovers over recent years. On 1st May 2017, Stody hosted the 28th Heritage Run of the Broadland MG Owners' Club annual rally. On 22nd May 2016, the Stody Boutique Festival was attended by a fantastic selection of classic and vintage vehicles that was hugely popular with the festival's visitors. It has also been visited by several other classic car clubs who are drawn to its excellent facilities for motor enthusiasts as well as its unusually bright and colourful gardens.

David Johnson, of the Broadland MGOC, said: 'We had a fantastic time visiting Stody Lodge Gardens in 2017 and 2018 and all our members felt very welcome. There was ample well-drained parking, lots of space for picnics and everyone really enjoyed looking around these brightly coloured gardens.'

On Sunday 12th May 2019, there will be free entry to the gardens for all drivers of a classic vehicle (passengers not included.) Gates to the gardens open at 1pm and close at 5pm but vehicles are welcome to arrive any time from midday.

Individual vehicle owners are welcome to attend The Stody Classic Vehicles Day without registering their vehicle or completing an application form.
