Bromyard Speed Festival
Preparations are under way in the Herefordshire market town of Bromyard as it sets itself up to host the 2022 Bromyard Speed Festivals’ Platinum Jubilee Celebration on Sunday May 29th.
Vehicles from every decade of the Queen’s reign will be featured. Static displays of over 140 road, race, and historic cars along with super cars, prestige vehicles and motorcycles will fill the bustling streets alongside a variety of food outlets. A highlight of the day will be the appearance of the land speed record holding jet powered dragster, the Vampire. Visitors can also try their hand at some F1 driving on the Driving Legends race simulator with a bottle of fizz for the fastest time of day.
The event is organised by the Bromyard Speed Festival CIC, a not-for-profit Community Interest Company. Profits generated are used to fund future events with all surpluses distributed to local good causes including the HOPE Centre, the Conquest Theatre and the Bromyard Food Bank and Money Advice Centre.
“The Bromyard Speed Festival has a policy of supporting local charities and has donated just over £20,000 to these charities since its inception,” said Trevor Jones, BSF director. “Just as important to the organisation is how the annual event enhances the reputation and image of Bromyard and its beneficial effect on the local economy. Each event is estimated to generate £250,000 in business in a 10-mile radius around Bromyard.”
The paddocks will open at 11am and at 12 noon the opening ceremony will be held with a procession of cars around the town led by the Vampire.
Spectator parking is £15 per car with up to five occupants and motorcycle parking for rider and one accompanying guest is £5, event programmes included.
