British Motor Museum Release Summer Schedule

After the announcement of the roadmap from the Government as the way out of lockdown, The British Motor Museum is planning to reopen on the 17th May and gearing up to run a full schedule of their popular motoring shows and events this year over the summer months.

Several of their popular events will be back this year and over 14 shows and rallies are being planned for the summer. Within the line up events include the Land Rover Show and the Retro Truck Show as well as other brand-new events. To start the season with a bang, the ever popular Metro and Mini Show on 6th June is back followed by three car club rallies: 27th June will see the Ford Nationals and the TR Drivers Day, followed by the Mogfest on 10th July. Also returning for another season is the The BMC and Leyland Show on 11th July, the Old Ford Rally on 18th July and rescheduled from last year, the MGF’s 25th anniversary with the MGF 25+1 Anniversary Rally on 24th July.

The Museum are expecting these shows to be in high demand after a year break, so are asking everyone planning to attend, including exhibitors, to pre-book their tickets early. The events will have limited capacity in-line with the governments guidelines.

Also joining the summer line up, is The Gaydon Land Rover Show which is back on 31st July & 1st August (a changed date for 2021) bringing owners, vehicles and lovers of history together for a weekend dedicated to this iconic marque. On the 7th August, The EV Electric Vehicle Festival takes place with the Classic and Vintage Commercial Show, and this year, the Transit Van Club Rally and Classic Van and Pick Up Show, will be taking place on the 14th & 15th August (a changed date from last year).

Rounding off the summer in August and September, new to Gaydon is ‘Autolicious’ on 29th August. Presented by Audi-licious, this event gives you the chance to see a fleet of stunning cars on display including makes such as Audi, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bentley and more. The Gaydon Jaguar show is also calling all Jaguar fanatics on the 4th September and The Retro Truck Show returns on the 11th-12th September. 

Last but not least, the Large Model Aircraft Show on 24th October and the Great British Model Railway Show on 30th & 31st October finish the season and are the first indoor events of the year. 

Ongoing Government advice will be monitored by The Museum and they will keep visitors informed of any changes.
