Members of the public are invited to visit for free, there is no entry fee, and there will be catering and toilet facilities on site.

Laura Shakespeare, head of curriculum for engineering at the college said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming visitors on campus again for this event, after a year of various stages of lockdown at the college.

“We wanted to host the car show and autojumble to help showcase the facilities we have at our Bridlington campus for motor vehicle and engineering.

“We have a fully equipped automotive engineering workshop, welding and fabrication, and specialist engineering facilities, including mechatronics.

“It takes over one whole wing of the St Mary’s Walk campus – we must be one of the best equipped colleges in the area for engineering and motor vehicle studies.”
