Also on Sunday, the Chiltern Hills vintage vehicle rally takes place at Weedon Park, just outside Aylesbury, next to the site of the Bucks County Show from 10am to 5pm.

The annual rally is organised by The Game Club and raises money for local charities.

As well as a display of more than 800 classic vehicles, other activities include children’s rides and slides, a dog show, around 50 trade stands, a beer tent, a pig roast and refreshments.

Entry to the rally costs £6 for an adult with under-14s getting in free.

It also costs £10 if you wish to bring a vehicle on the day.
