Winter events coming soon at The British Motor Museum, Gaydon…
They tell us:
The British Motor Museum is to host a number of events this winter including an interactive evening discussing the exciting Morgan Super 3 – the Designer’s Perspective, a book signing event featuring Michael Barton’s book “Fast Lady – The Extraordinary Adventures of Miss Dorothy Levitt” and the return of the popular evening Quiz Night!
The first event will take place on Monday 7 November from 6pm-10pm when visitors can join Jonathan Wells – Morgan Motor Company’s Head of Design, for an interactive evening discussing the Morgan Super 3. The evening will include a walk around the car and a behind-the-scenes insight into some of the stories and thoughts which drove the development of this exciting design.
The evening will be hosted by Steve Cropley – Editor in Chief, Autocar and Trustee of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, who will be in conversation with the automotive designer in a relaxed environment, with audience participation and questions being encouraged. The evening includes a buffet-style supper and welcome drinks on the Gallery where a selection of Morgan cars will be on display.
Catherine Boxall, Curator at the British Motor Museum said, “Whether you are a fan of the Morgan brand’s 110+ years of heritage or whether you would like to discover more about their future plans and innovative automotive designs, this is an opportunity not to be missed!”
On Saturday 26 November the Museum will host a talk and book signing event featuring Michael Barton’s new book entitled “Fast Lady – The Extraordinary Adventures of Miss Dorothy Levitt”. The book, which coincides with the centenary of her death, charts the life and times of Dorothy through the glittering years between 1903-1910 that saw her feted for her ground-breaking motoring triumphs and feisty personality, to her untimely demise at just 40 years old in 1922. Michael will be talking about the book and answering questions posed by the Museum’s Head of Collections, Stephen Laing. Michael will also be taking questions from the audience, before a book signing with the chance for visitors to purchase a signed copy.
The British Motor Museum Quiz Night is back by popular demand on Tuesday 29 November. The fun and entertaining evening will again be led by special guest Danny Hopkins, Editor of Practical Classics Magazine. Teams of up to 6 can enjoy a fun night out at the Museum. The subject rounds will include general knowledge, music and movies as well as more general motoring knowledge questions. The evening includes time to look around the Museum from 5.30pm with the bar opening at 6:30pm. Round one is a trail around the car collection, with teams needing to find the answers by 7pm when a two-course supper, including vegan & vegetarian options will be served. The remaining rounds will take place in the Museum’s stunning rooftop Sky Suite, with the evening ending around 9pm and a cash prize for the winning team.
