The British Motor Museum is gearing up to run a full schedule of motoring shows and events in 2021.

At least 17 events are being planned for 2021, including the return of several popular events such as the Retro Truck Show and Buses Festival which were cancelled due to the pandemic in 2020.

The ‘Gaydon Gathering’ – a free monthly evening gathering aimed at motoring enthusiasts – will return, taking placeon the second Tuesday of every month starting on April 13. Pre-booking is essential.

New for 2021 is the E-Type 60th Anniversary which takes place on April 24. The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust are planning a number of events in 2021 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Jaguar E-Type at Geneva in 1961. This will start with an exhibition opening early February and running to the end of May showcasing some of the evolution and development of the E-Type.

The Gaydon Land Rover Show returns on May 8 and 9, bringing the finest vehicles, owners and historians together. The popular Metro and Mini Show takes places on June 6 and the Classic and Vintage Commercial Show, which this year includes the Transit Van Club Rally and Classic Van and Pick Up Show, returns on June 12 and 13.

Other shows include the Historic Rally Club Register Open Day on April 10 and Mogfest on July 10. The BMC and Leyland Show returns on July 11 followed by the Old Ford Rally on July 18 and the Buses Festival on August 22.

The Gaydon Jaguar Show, which was a new show in 2020, returns on September 4 and the Retro Truck Show returns on September 11 and 12 with the UK Slot Car Festival on October 2 and 3 and the Great British Model Railway Show on October 30 and 31.

The museum says it will continue to monitor government advice and keep visitors informed of any changes.
