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.

Outdoor Event Space

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

At the entrance to our Conference Centre we have an additional hard standing area which can be used as a product display zone as your delegates arrive at your event.

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

The 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. The Drive Zone is currently only available for weekend bookings. 

Our outdoor spaces are used throughout the summer months for our shows calendar as well as by our corporate clients so please do get in touch if you need help organising your outdoor event.
