Our Classic Motorcycle Show

Our popular bike show has attracted some 800 exhibitors and visitors. Bikes from the early days of motorcycling can be seen alongside many classic bikes from the heyday of British motorcycle manufacturing in the 1950s and 60s. Hot dogs, burgers, and ice cream plus a visit to the museum makes this a great day out for fans of two-wheeled transport

Our Classic Car Show

Once again our display arena will be full with cars from the early days of motoring through to modern classics.  With all of these to see in addition to a visit to the museum, this will be a fun event for all classic car enthusiasts and their families. A range of food options is available for what promises to be a great day out.

Our Model & Miniatures Weekend

Model boats, tanks, trucks, railway engines, and railway layouts were just some of the attractions to be seen at our model weekend. This is a must for families with something for children of all ages, parents, and grandparents. Entry price for this weekend includes a visit to the museum and the chance to enjoy a bus ride.
