British Motor Museum to host free ‘Tuesday Night Gaydon Gatherings’!
The British Motor Museum says it is delighted to announce it is to host a series of brand new monthly evening gatherings aimed at motoring enthusiasts. The first ‘Gaydon Gathering’ will take place on Tuesday 15 September from 5:30pm to 8pm and the next on Tuesday 13 October. The Gaydon Gathering will then be a regular feature of the 2021 events programme, on the second Tuesday of every month starting on the 13 April 2021.
These informal events will be held outdoors on the Museum’s arenas and are free to attend. Visitors can just turn up on the evening, with no pre booking required. At 7 pm the Museum will present the ‘Gaydon Garage’ feature when the Museum’s workshop doors will be opened to reveal one of the fantastic vehicles from the collection that are not often seen out of the Museum. The vehicle will be driven out onto the apron and introduced over the PA system.
Display vehicles will be parked in front of the Museum whilst there will be separate free parking for those that arrive in modern everyday vehicles. On the night visitors can also enjoy refreshments including burgers, beers, tea, coffee and soft drinks. Gaydon Gatherings will take place in the grounds but the Museum itself will not be open during these evenings.
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum stated “Our casual gatherings are open to everyone. It doesn’t matter if your vehicle is British or not, if it’s a car, commercial, military, bus, motorbike, scooter, tractor or any other interesting vehicle, just bring it along. Be it classic, veteran, vintage or a modern classic – all are welcome. And if you don’t have any of the above, you are still welcome to come along and enjoy the evening! It’s an opportunity for petrol heads to indulge their passion with like-minded people – whilst having a burger and a drink. We hope these events will appeal to our enthusiast friends who would like an early week alternative to staying at home watching TV!”
In addition, the Museum hopes to launch some evening indoor events for enthusiasts over the winter months; more information on this will follow on its website and via social media.
The Museum will continue to monitor the Government advice and keep visitors informed of any changes. Names and contact details of all arrivals will be taken to comply with NHS Test and Trace and visitors are asked to observe social distancing.
