The British Motor Museum is to host an exclusive opportunity for visitors to look around
the Museum’s Collections Centre at a special evening on Tuesday 10 January. Visitors will
have 3 hours to explore the 4,500m2 building which holds over 200 cars from the British
Motor Museum and Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust’s collections. The building houses some of the oldest British cars, to sports cars and one-off prototypes, some of which have
rarely been on display to the public before.
A select few of the vehicles will have bonnets, boots and doors opened for this special
event so visitors can see more of the cars than they would during normal opening hours.
Visitors can also meet the Museum’s Head of Collections and the Collections Manager of
the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, as well as listen in to the workshop briefings to find
the inside story on the current restoration projects in the workshop.
Dinner is also included with a choice of Beef & Vegetable Casserole with colcannon and peas or Vegan Winter Vegetable Casserole with roasted new potatoes and peas followed
by Bramley Apple Strudel or Apple Crumble.
Cat Boxall, Curator at the British Motor Museum said “We’re delighted to be hosting our
first Late evening of 2023 to give visitors a rare opportunity to see the Collections Centre
and a ‘behind the scenes’ insight into how we store and preserve our vehicles. Those who
came to the last Collections Centre evening will enjoy a brand new line-up of cars with
their bonnets, boots and doors open and new restoration projects in the workshop too!”.
Tickets cost £16 each or £11 for Members. Premium Members can attend the event for
