Weston Park Motorfest: Cars are the stars at show - with pictures and video

Petrol-heads turned out in force to Weston Park over the Easter holiday for the annual Motorfest.

Around 1,700 vehicles were on display at the attraction on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border, spanning 80 years of driving joy.

The two-day motoring extravaganza kicked off at the weekend with more than 70 local car club members representing their vehicles of choice, with displays from BMW Car Club, Jaguar Enthusiasts Club and Mercedes-Benz, alongside classic American cars, custom cars, 4x4s, motorcycles and commercial vehicles of the past.

As usual the grounds of the stately home near Shifnal were also packed with stalls selling motoring memorabilia for enthusiasts. But this year the celebration aimed to appeal to all the family, not just the die-hards, with new live music features, shopping stalls and Easter activities, including fun fair rides.

Retro girl band The Glamophones sung the songs of the 1940s and 1950s on Sunday, while The Quik Beats played the sounds of the 1960s yesterday.
