Organisers of this year’s Journey Through the Ages event in Palgrave over the weekend are delighted with how the event went.
The two day event attracted large crowds and for show organiser Gareth Mutimer, this was nothing but positive and a sign of how well the show went.
“Since the event, I have had nothing but positive feedback,” he said.
“The crowds loved the weekend and have already been asking me whether the event will be happening again next year.
“The weather was fantastic and just helped to make the event special.”
More than 400 exhibitors were on show for the event at Goodrich Park, which featured a variety of vintage displays, including classic vehicles, a fairground and much more.
It was this variety that Mr Mutimer believes made it such a success. “The turnout of exhibitions was of a very high standard. As well as all of the vintage exhibitions we were delighted to welcome the Suffolk Land Rover Club, for whom we created an off road course.
“The highlight of the weekend for me had to be the small air display that we had on the Sunday.”
There were also a number of other events, such as Viking re-enactments, a number of demonstrations including the work of blacksmiths.
The area has been lacking events of this sort since the Eye Show stopped in 2011 and this is the part of the reason Mr Mutimer set up the event.
He said: “Since the Eye Show ended a few years back, there has been a gap for an event like this, hence the reason why we set it up. This weekend has proven that decision to be a success.”
As for the question of whether the event will take place next year, Mr Mutimer is very positive that it will happen.
“It is a bit early to be considering the plans for next year but yes, it will definitely happen.
“We would love to build on the show and make it even better. The crowds loved it this year so hopefully we can continue.”
