events 2020 Poster Cancelled

We are a favourite venue for classic car owners on “Drive it Day” each April and we hold four popular events in the museum grounds during the season showing classic cars, motorcycles, and models of all sorts. Exhibitors enjoy free entry to the museum but exhibitor booking for the car show and model weekend is essential.  Parking for visitors is free – normal admission prices apply.  Open top bus rides and an outdoor BBQ make our events a fun day for exhibitors and visitors alike.  The museum is also an ideal venue for classic car and bike club outings.

Our Classic Bike Show 2019

In 2019 our popular bike show attracted 800 exhibitors and visitors. Bikes from the early days of motorcycling could be seen alongside many classic bikes from the heyday of British motorcycle manufacturing in the 1950s and 60s. A barbecue and visit to the museum made this a great day out for fans of two wheeled transport. 

Our Classic Car Show 2019

Once again our display arena was full to bursting with cars from the early days of motoring through to modern classics.  With all that to see as well as open top bus tours, a barbecue and the chance to visit the museum this was a fun event for classic car enthusiasts and families alike.

Our Model Weekend 2019

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 and a picnic with our barbecue.

Bike raffle to be drawn September 2022
