THE Rotary Fields, in Purley, will be transformed next weekend into the venue for what is regarded as the most impressive display of classic vehicles to be staged in the area.
The Classic Car Show is being organised by the Rotary Club of Croydon Whitgift as part of the Croydon Heritage Festival, which was launched this week.
It will be held on the fields, in Brighton Road, on Sunday, June 16 from 10am to 5pm, and will feature classic cars ranging from Aston Martins, Jensens and Jaguars to Morris 1000s, Minis and a Ford Consul.
The cars, which date back as far as 1934, will take part in two parades around the field during the day
In addition the police will be bringing along the historical vehicles collection from their museum in Hampton and the London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service will also be turning up with their own historic vehicles.
There will also be plenty of entertainment for children, including face painting, bouncy castle, balloon race.
And for the adults there will be a barbecue, beer and wine, and strawberries and cream.
Entrance on the day is £3 for over-16s with a first child getting in free and other children being charged £1.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Rotary charities The Wave Trust – dedicated to tackling child abuse and family violence – Sanderstead Neighbourhood Care and the Rotary Foundation.
