Flower Power as car show roars into Tonbridge

The Mead School in Tunbridge Wells gave a professional level performance in the  ISA drama contests

THIS year’s Tonbridge Food and Drink Festival has a new addition, the Poppy Power supercar and classic car show.

The event will be held at Sovereign Way car park on Sunday May 27 from 10am-4pm, with all proceeds going to the town’s Poppy Appeal.

It is the brainchild of Henry Clarke of Clarke Williams, the commercial insurance brokers in the High Street who have organised and funded
the event.

The inaugural Poppy Power is the town’s first event of the centenary celebrations to mark the end of World War I.

Carl Lewis, who heads the town’s collection for the Royal British Legion, said: ‘The Tonbridge Poppy Appeal goes into top gear with the first of our main events for 2018.

‘Poppy Power will be host to a wide range of superb vehicles, both new and old, with private owners and clubs participating.’

He added: ‘We hope this event will go the extra mile to beat last year’s record town total of £37,000 for the Royal British Legion.’

Entry is free, but members of the public and clubs who wish to display their vehicles are asked to donate £20 to the cause.
