Motor enthusiasts are being offered the chance to see vintage, classic and retro vehicles at new, free outdoor gatherings at The British Motor Museum.

The Gaydon Gathering outdoor show takes place at the Museum in Banbury Road, Gaydon, on Tuesday 13 October from 5.30pm to 8pm.

Those with their own special motors can come along to display them on the grounds of the Warwickshire-based Museum during the session too. That can be from a tractor to a car or bus.

The new Gaydon Gathering is set to become a regular feature during 2021 - on the second Tuesday of every month - starting on April 13.

The British Motor Museum prides itself on having the world's largest collection of historic British cars. Although the Museum won't be open during the gathering, chosen vehicles will be showcased in its grounds.

Informal and outdoors, the gatherings at the Museum's arenas are free and allow visitors to turn up on the evening - but they need to pre-book in advance so the Museum adheres to the NHS Track and Trace system. Tickets will be available to book up to midday on the day of the event from the British Motor Museum website here .

Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum said: "Our casual gatherings are open to everyone. It doesn't matter 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."

Tom added: "Be it classic, veteran, vintage or a modern classic – all are welcome. And if you don't have any of the above, you are still welcome to come along and enjoy the evening! It's an opportunity for petrol heads to indulge their passion with like-minded people - whilst having a burger and a drink. We hope these events will appeal to our enthusiast friends who would like an early week alternative to staying at home watching TV."

During the session - at 7pm - the Museum will present the 'Gaydon Garage' feature when the Museum's workshop doors will be opened to reveal one of the fantastic vehicles from the collection, not often seen beyond the building's walls.

The vehicle will be driven out onto the apron and introduced over the PA system.

Display vehicles will be parked in front of the Museum whilst there will be separate free parking for those that arrive in vehicles not for display.

Visitors can refresh themselves with food and drinks while they are there with everything from burgers and beers to tea and coffee sold on the night,

The Museum hopes to launch some evening indoor events for enthusiasts over the winter months and will update its website on these in the coming months.
