There will also a be a display of classic cars in the Market Place and a performance of live rock music from Dark Lightning to keep the party atmosphere going late into the evening.

This event will be followed on Sunday by the next vintage craft market event in the town centre, with a lively mix of beautiful old cars, market stalls, live music and dancing.

It’s become a monthly treat and this month there will be over 75 traders with beautifully hand-crafted gifts on sale, lots of local food and drink, as well as the musical entertainment and displays of vintage vehicles, jeeps and bikes to check out.

There will once again be a steampunk theme to the market with visitors and traders wearing stunning clothing from the movement.

The Melton Mowbray Folk Festival also returns this weekend, with sets being played on stages in Market Place and Wilton Park on both Saturday and Sunday, from 10am until dusk.
