The British Motor Museum’s ‘Gaydon Gathering’ events return for 2022 on Tuesday 12 April from 5pm – 8pm. Informal, fun evenings aimed at motoring enthusiasts, these events are completely free to attend, taking place outdoors on the Museum’s arenas on the second Tuesday every month.  Up to 500 vehicles attended each of the 2021 Gatherings with a truly eclectic mix of vehicle types, makes and models.  All vehicles are welcome, no matter how many wheels they have or where and when they were made!

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 Gaydon Gathering are available from 22 March and when they are gone, they’re gone!

In addition to providing an opportunity for likeminded motoring enthusiasts to display their vehicles, each Gathering will also feature the ‘Gaydon Garage’ when the workshop doors open to reveal one of the many fantastic vehicles from the Museum’s unique collection before it’s driven around the site for everyone to enjoy.  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 years ‘Gaydon Gatherings’ proved hugely popular and we are looking forward to bringing them back for 2022.  It’s an opportunity for petrol heads to indulge their passion, whilst enjoying a burger and drink, hopefully in the spring sunshine! It doesn’t matter if you have a vehicle or not, or if your vehicle is British or not, if it’s a car, commercial, military, bus, motorbike, scooter, tractor or any other interesting vehicle, just bring it along!”

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.

The dates for 2022 Gatherings are; 12 April, 10 May, 14 June, 12 July, 9 August, 13 September, and 11 October. Dogs are welcome on leads. Please note that the Museum itself will not be open for the evening gatherings.
