Our thanks to everyone who helped to make our 2019 event a big success, over 100 volunteers on the day. The weather was great for both the erecting of the marquee/site preparation and the day itself. We had a fantastic turnout of vehicles and visitors. Thanks too, to Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council who supported our event via the Community Festivals Fund.

A big thank-you to all who came along to our Big Breakfast on Saturday 23rd February 2019 and helped start our Charity fund-raising for 2019.
