SUNDAY 13th MAY 2018

On Sunday 13th May 2018, Stody Lodge Gardens will extend a special welcome to a wide range of classic vehicle lovers for its spectacular May-flowering season.  The Stody Classic Vehicles Day will be a great gathering of classic vehicles of all varieties.

This event has been organised following the rising popularity of these magical gardens as a destination for car lovers over recent years. Most recently, on 1st May 2017, Stody Lodge Gardens hosted the 28th Heritage Run of the Broadland MG Owners' Club annual rally. On 22nd May 2016, the Stody Boutique Festival was attended by a fantastic selection of classic and vintage vehicles that was hugely popular with the festival's visitors. It has also been visited by several other classic car clubs who are drawn to its excellent facilities for motor enthusiasts as well as its unusually bright and colourful gardens.

David Johnson, of the Broadland MGOC, said: 'We had a fantastic time visiting Stody Lodge Gardens and all our members felt very welcome. There was ample well-drained parking, lots of space for picnics and everyone really enjoyed visiting these brightly coloured gardens.'

On Sunday 13th May 2018, there will be free entry to the gardens for all drivers of a classic vehicle (passengers not included.) Gates to the gardens open at 1pm and close at 5pm but vehicles are welcome to arrive any time from midday.

Individual vehicle owners are welcome to attend The Stody Classic Vehicles Day without registering their vehicle or completing an application form. If you wish to attend as part of a club, please contact Stody Lodge Gardens on or on 01263 860572 to give an idea of numbers so appropriate sized parking can be reserved.

Visitors to Stody Lodge Gardens will be amazed by the riot of colour thanks to its extensive collection of over 200 varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas. This intensity of colour is softened by beautiful magnolias, camellias, ornamental and specimen trees, late daffodils and bluebells.
