Hedingham Castle Jousting

Bank holiday Sunday the 25th I spent a very enjoyable day with my family. It’s only at holiday time we can all get together.  The day was all about giving my grandchildren a full day of entertainment, so we went to the jousting at Hedingham Castle, this is a really good family spectacle. The jousting team this time was the” Knights of Royal England & Fair”. Their horsemanship was superb, managing the show in what seems to be a very confined space with speed, safety & elegance.

Rougham 40s weekend

I took a trip to Rougham Airfield nr. Bury St Edmunds today for their 40s weekend. This was a very pleasant show with all the usual re-enactment performers along with their vintage vehicles.

This was a very interesting car the Morgan 3 Wheeler , the original classic being produced from 1911-1939, now once again being made by the Morgan factory in the UK and is yours for around £30k
