British Motor Museum Gaydon Gathering

Everyone welcome

It doesn’t matter if your vehicle is British or not, or if it’s a car, commercial, military, bus, motorbike, scooter or tractor, just bring it along. Be it classic, veteran, vintage or a modern classic – all are welcome. If you don’t have a vehicle to display, please still come along and enjoy the evening. This is a chance for petrolheads to indulge in their passion with like-minded people - whilst having a burger and a drink at a social distance!

The event will be held outdoors at the front of the Museum. Those wishing to display their vehicle will be asked to park up front, whilst those arriving in modern/everyday cars will be parked separately. There will be refreshments on sale including; burgers, teas, coffees and cold drinks.

Gaydon Gatherings will take place in the grounds and the Museum itself will not be open during these evenings. The gates will open at 5pm for cars to arrive, the Gaydon Garage feature will take place at 6.30pm. 

We hope that this event will appeal to you all – so please spread the word to your friends and clubs and we look forward to welcoming you to one of many Gaydon Gatherings.

Gaydon Garage Feature

At 6.30pm we will open the workshop doors of the Collections Centre and bring out some of our fantastic vehicles, not normally seen out of the Museum. This month's theme will be the Jaguar E-type, as it is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

To comply with government guidelines the vehicle will be introduced over the PA system and driven around the grounds for everyone to see and hear. 

Keeping You Safe

Keeping you and our staff safe is our top priority. Tickets to the Gaydon Gathering will be limited. To comply with NHS Test & Trace at the time of booking we will be taking the name and a contact number of every adult attending. 

In line with current guidance we are bound by the rule of 6 or 2 households, and all attendees must observe social distancing.

The next Gaydon Gathering

Subject to any changes in Government advice we plan to hold a Gathering on the second Tuesday evening of every month until autumn. We hope to see you there!

This is a free event and as numbers are limited, if you have reserved a ticket but later decide you no longer wish to attend the event please let us know so that we can reallocate your ticket(s).
