Sewerby Hall and Gardens will be hosting the East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club’s (EYTCC) spring gathering of historic and classic vehicles on Sunday, 20 May, from 11am-4pm, giving visitors the opportunity to view over 150 vehicles and chat with their owners.
Formed in 1982, the EYTCC is for enthusiasts of vintage and classic motor vehicles. The club has many events throughout the year and a large membership – with a diverse selection of vehicles – generally over 20 years old.
Sewerby Hall and Gardens are hosting a superb programme of events this Easter weekend.
The ever-popular Medieval Jousting spectacular returns once again – on Easter Sunday (1 April), the Knights of Nottingham will take over the front field and present a performance of jousting, sword fighting and much more. Displays will be at 1pm and 2.30pm.
Two open days will take place in Bridlington during the Easter holidays to encourage people with a disability or mobility issue to come along and access specially-adapted bicycles.
All Ride is an adapted bike scheme for people over the age of five which has been set up along the North Promenade in Bridlington. The scheme offers people with disabilities or mobility issues, as well as their family and carers, the opportunity to take part in cycling. All Ride is the only adapted cycling scheme of its kind in the East Riding.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s countryside access team has launched its Countryside Events 2018 programme that includes walks starting in Beverley.
From rambles and themed walks (including photography, navigation, bushcraft, geocaching and orienteering) to wildlife watching events; from Kids Go Wild events to workshops, conservation days and natural craft workshops – the programme includes something for everybody with an interest in the outdoors. The programme also links to the council’s Active Coast initiative this year.
Tour Britannia have announced that the Bridlington Weekend of Motoring will return in 2018, on Saturday and Sunday 8 and 9 September.
Working in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council, event organisers Tour Britannia have unveiled initial plans for two full days of activities to encourage car owners and enthusiasts to visit the town.
The first ever Weekend of Christmas is taking place this weekend (Saturday and Sunday 2 and 3 December) at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
Most of the individual events included in the Weekend are free of charge – after payment of admission to Sewerby Hall and Gardens – although there is a small extra charge for the Photobooth and the donkey rides on both days.
So, the nights are getting darker now and there’s a chilly nip in the air. As summer has become a distant memory and the days are getting colder, there may not seem like a lot to do in the lead up to Christmas.
But fear not, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy your weekends without splashing the cash, so get your big coat on and walking boots on as you enjoy some of the best East Yorkshire has to offer.
