The Event

Inaugurated in 2016, Heveningham Concours has become one of the UK’s finest annual motor car and aeroplane shows. It is held at Heveningham Hall in Suffolk where around fifty remarkable cars are displayed on the garden terraces together with a dozen or so historic propeller aircraft on grounds nearby. Heveningham Concours also presents Horsepower Hill, a run for all sorts of amazing cars along the estate’s parkland road, as well as the Heveningham Tour, a 50-mile drive for the Concours entrants through the Suffolk countryside with a stop for lunch. The event takes place at the same time as, and side-by-side with, the wider annual Heveningham Hall Country Fair.

Trophies

Now approaching its seventh edition, Heveningham Concours brings together fifty of the world’s finest motor cars which compete for top honours & special commendations in a variety of categories. There is also an award for Horsepower Hill.

In the aviation concours, around a dozen of the world’s rarest propeller aeroplanes compete for the Hanna Aviation Trophy which is awarded to the best in show. All of the awards are presented to the owners, by the judges, at the summer party on Saturday evening at Heveningham Hall.

The Charity

All proceeds and profits from Heveningham Concours are donated to a charitable Trust, which funds many and various cases of need locally and beyond. A few examples of beneficiaries include a local dementia unit, the East Anglian Air Ambulance and a number of local sports clubs.

Heveningham Concours also provides a scholarship for a student undertaking a Master’s degree in Intelligent Mobility at the Royal College of Art.

Heveningham Hall

Heveningham Hall was first built in 1658. Between 1778 and 1781 it was substantially rebuilt by architects Sir Robert Taylor and James Wyatt, resulting in the strikingly wide exterior and the interior’s astonishing neoclassical rooms. The landscape was designed by Capability Brown in 1782, with groundworks also beginning in that year, but with his death in 1783, the landscape project soon faded. In 1995 the works to complete these plans began and renowned landscape architect Kim Wilkie was brought in to help accomplish this. Kim went on to help create many other landscape projects on the estate with the terraces at the rear of the Hall, upon which the motor cars are displayed for the Heveningham Concours, being a notable example.
