The British Motor Museum’s 'Gaydon Gathering' events return on Tuesday 11 April 2023 from 5pm – 8:30pm. Informal, fun evenings aimed at motoring enthusiasts, these events are free to attend, taking place outside on the Museum's arenas on the second Tuesday of each month. Up to 500 vehicles attended last year’s events with a truly eclectic mix of vehicle types, makes and models.
Whilst free to attend, pre-booking is essential and tickets will be released online a few weeks before each event and will be announced on social media. Tickets for the April event are now available. The dates for the rest of the Gatherings are; 9 May, 13 June, 11 July, 8 August, 12 September, and 10 October.
In addition to providing an opportunity for likeminded motoring enthusiasts to display their vehicles, each Gathering will feature the 'Gaydon Garage' at 6:30pm when the workshop doors open to reveal one of the many fantastic vehicles from the Museum’s collection before it’s driven around the site. Hints as to which car will emerge from the garage will be posted on the Museum’s social media channels in the run up to the events.
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum stated “Last year’s ‘Gaydon Gatherings’ proved immensely popular and we are looking forward to hosting them this year. All vehicles are welcome, no matter how many wheels they have or where and when they were made! It’s an opportunity for petrol heads to indulge their passion with a burger and drink, hopefully in the spring sunshine!”
Display vehicles will be parked in front of the Museum whilst there will be separate free parking for those visitors who aren’t displaying. Visitors can enjoy refreshments including burgers as well as hot and soft drinks. Wriggly Monkey Brewing from Bicester will also be on-site selling their range of lagers and ales.
Dogs are welcome on leads. Please note that the Museum itself will not be open for the evening gatherings. For more information or to book your free tickets for April's gathering, visit our webpage here
