British Motor Museum

Outdoor Event Space

Three event arenas and 65 acres of flexible space

Outdoor Event Space


The British Motor Museum has plenty of outdoor space whether you are looking for an area for a marquee, driver training or team building event.



At the front of the Museum there are two arenas North and South, totalling 9,765 sqm which are perfect for product displays, driver training and drive-in cinema style events. The Northern Arena has 6 EV charging points which lends itself perfectly to car launches and is often used as a low speed dynamic driver training zone.

At the rear of the building we have an additional hard standing area, the Western Arena, which has a further 4 EV charging points and is ideal as a product display zone or ride and drive collection point.

In addition to this our 65 acre site has plenty of grass areas for stages, marquees and team building events and our Vehicle Demonstration Area.

The Vehicle Demonstration Area, or Drive Zone is a purpose built driver training facility in the grounds of the British Motor Museum. The area consists of a series of junctions, roundabouts, parking areas etc. that recreate an urban driving environment but in a safe and controlled setting. This area is ideal for driver training, vehicle demonstrations and product training. 

Our outdoor spaces are used throughout the summer months for our own shows as well as those of our corporate clients so we have an experienced events team on hand to help support or organise your next outdoor event.
