Cllr Lynn Jones said of the event, "It was a wonderful day, with a fantastic turnout of both car exhibitors and the public. The live entertainment from Daventry Brass Band, Daventry Ukulele Orchestra, Starlight Dance Academy and George Holmes really did make the event swing.

The feedback from everyone has been phenomenal, which really goes to show the level of community spirit that Daventry possesses. This was definitely the perfect way to end my Mayoral year."

The event has raised over £400 for the Mayor's chosen charities, which are Daventry Street Pastors, Daventry Contacts and the Women's Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS).
