Here at Footman James we know how vital it is to preserve classic cars so they can be enjoyed by future generations to come.
That’s why we’re so delighted to confirm Haynes International Motor Museum as our latest affinity partner.
The partnership package will explore shared opportunities and benefits for both our customers and museum visitors.
The Somerset venue is home to the UK’s largest exhibition of cars from around the world. At the end of last year it fought off strong competition to be crowned ‘Museum or Collection of the Year’ at the prestigious International Historic Motoring Awards.
Visitors get up close and personal with more than 400 cars and bikes from nostalgic classics to modern icons - exploring a range of interactive displays and virtual reality exhibitions that bring motoring history to life.
There are Bentleys and Rolls Royces dating back to the 50s and 60s, not to mention supercars like the Jaguar XJ220. It really is a Shangri-La for all motoring enthusiasts, whether you’ve just bought your first car or have a garage bursting with motors.
A perfect fit
Our policies come with a range of benefits that are important to owners, collectors and professionals everywhere.
David Bond, our director, is excited about the prospect of working with such a successful museum.
“We would like to welcome Haynes International Motor Museum to our collection of affinity partners,” he said.
“The museum is world renowned within the classic vehicle movement and we look forward to working with them for the good of enthusiasts throughout the UK and abroad.”
A £6million extension, renovation and refurbishment programme was recently completed at the museum.
Three new exhibition halls and three modernised halls were erected during the building work. Other additions include the Haynes Motorland Children’s Adventure Play Zone, Café 750 and a museum shop.
Creating a buzz
Marc Haynes, Director at Haynes International Motor Museum, has also welcomed the partnership.
“Encouraging visitors and creating a buzz around our impressive collection of classic vehicles is at the heart of what we do,” he commented.
“We look forward to reaping the rewards that Footman James’ wealth of experience, clubs and enthusiasts will bring to us.”
