There's another exciting addition to the line-up for this year's Ilkley Carnival.

The event's first classic vehicle show is promising a wide range of vintage transport, from Daimlers and Triumphs to Austins and Jaguars.

It will also boast prime models from the Ford Anglia 105E Owners' Club and a rare AEC Routemaster bus which was first used on the streets of London in December 1960.

With around 50 exhibits booked and more expected, motoring enthusiasts can also see a 1933 Sentinel DG6 steam wagon, a 1932 Jowett Blackbird and the oldest working vehicle in the country, a 1938 Bedford WL removals van.

Carnival committee member Colin Watson said: "The committee is constantly looking at ways of evolving the Carnival and we have received requests over the last couple of years for vintage vehicles. We're always keen to respond to what the public want to see, so thought we'd see what interest we could get from exhibitors.

"Four months on and we have a truly varied collection of vehicles taking part - some British-made, some simply steeped in heritage - all promising a new and interesting attraction on the day.

"Enormous effort goes into organising every element of Ilkley Carnival, as we want to create a day out that appeals to all ages. With the return of our Fun Dog Show, the comeback of the Black Hats vs White Hats cricket match, live music with Ilkley Rocks, our headline jousting knights and a visit from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, this is undoubtedly our most exciting event yet!"

Places are still available for anyone who would like to exhibit a classic car at Ilkley Carnival.
