A new festival perfect for petrolheads is coming to Suffolk for the very first time this summer.

The Weekender has been organised by automotive specialists Krazy Horse, which have their headquarters in Bury St Edmunds.

The festival will take place on July 7, 8 and 9 in Bardwell.

At the event, guests will be able to enjoy bands, beer and street food as well as getting up close to some iconic vehicles which have featured on TV.

On display will be an Indian Scout motorcycle which was used by presenter Guy Martin in Channel 4's 'Guy Martin's Wall of Death: Live'.

In the show, he set a world record for defying gravity on the largest 'wall of death' ever constructed.

Festival-goers can also get a look at everything from American muscle cars from the 60s and 70s to steam cars from the early 1900s.

The Weekender has been set up by Paul Beamish, founder of Krazy Horse, alongside a team of volunteers from Bardfest - west Suffolk's annual music festival.

He said: "I’ve always been into both cars and bikes and a lot of our customers are the same.

"There will be something for everyone to enjoy at The Weekender.

“We’ll have a specially curated collection of the sorts of cars and bikes that come to our Krazy Horse Late Night events.

"That includes a whole host of classic American cars, from 1930s originals to hot rods and 60s and 70s muscle cars.

"You’ll see lots of pick-up trucks, legendary Volkswagens, and even supercars.

“We’ve also got a few of the bikes we’ve built for Guy Martin over the years.

“And, most importantly, all of the bands will be undercover in our fantastic big top, so you don’t have to worry about the British weather ruining the fun.”

The Bury St Edmunds office of Select Car Leasing is one of the sponsors of the Krazy Horse Weekender.

Alan Beckett, principal at the Select Bury St Edmunds office, says: “We are so proud and excited to be involved in this new event.

"Select Car Leasing previously supported Bardfest and we’ve worked alongside Krazy Horse for many years. So, we jumped at the opportunity to sponsor The Weekender."

Some of the bands confirmed for The Weekender include rockers Dr Feelgood, rockabilly outfit The Kopy Katz and up-and-coming local band The Vitamins.

There will also be a dedicated shopping village at the festival. 

The Weekender is a not-for-profit venture that will funnel proceeds from the festival back to charities in Suffolk.

Tickets for the event start at £30 for a day ticket, with under-13s going free.
