Charlotte Steels, Lancashire County Council’s museum manager, said: “It will be a lot of fun and a chance to enjoy some motoring nostalgia, even if you’re too young to remember tootling along the open roads of a bygone age.
“As well as the wonderful vintage cars on show, there will be quizzes and other activities for children, together with all of our usual family friendly attractions.”
Admission is free.
