2020 Shows update from the British Motor Museum

LR show 2

With the British Motor Museum now closed due to COVID-19, the Museum has had to make the difficult decision to postpone or cancel some of its upcoming shows. The intention of the Museum is, where possible, to postpone rather than cancel shows, whilst consistently adhering to government advice. Shows set to take place later in June and July will be reviewed in the coming weeks.

The Gaydon Land Rover Show which was scheduled to take place on 9 - 10 May, has already been moved to 1 - 2 August. The UK Slot Car Festival was unfortunately cancelled by the organiser and will return for its 11th year in 2021. The Jaguar Breakfast Meet in May has been cancelled but is currently scheduled to return to the Museum in July. The Banbury Run has been postponed from 31 May to 16 August and the Classic & Vintage Commercial Show has been postponed from 13 - 14 June to 8 - 9 August.

Tickets for cancelled events will be refunded and processed over the next few weeks. For postponed events, all sold tickets will be valid for the new dates. For ticket FAQs visit the website at https://www.britishmotormuseum.co.uk/news/coronavirus-update-for-visitors

Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum stated “It is disappointing to have to change the dates of so many of our shows but in these unprecedented circumstances we are prioritising everyone’s welfare and looking to run the shows where possible. The British Motor Museum would like to thank everyone for their support and send everyone our best wishes. We look forward to delivering our first class shows when we can safely do so.”

Whilst the Museum is temporarily closed the team will be sending out regular posts on their social media channels and will also put their creativity to use in finding new ways to fuel their visitors’ imaginations for when the Museum reopens.

Swiftly followed by The Riddle, Nik spent 62 weeks in the charts and was one of the musicians to play Live Aid in July 1985.

For the uninitiated, Nell Mescal (yes, sister of actor Paul) is an Irish singer-songwriter who hit the festival circuit hard last summer, playing (amongst others) The Great Escape, BST Hyde Park, Boardmasters and Live at Leeds. This year, she’s headed to Oxfordshire and Alex James’ Big Feastival for August bank holiday weekend. Eloise Lonsdale caught up with her to find out more about her musical style and her recently launched EP, Can I Miss it For a Minute.

2024’s Truck line-up looks to be one of its best yet, balancing big names with emerging artists and beloved regulars. As an event, it has come to mark start of the summer holidays for its devoted attendees, but how about the acts? We caught up with Oli Khan, drummer in indie-rock band Sea Girls to get the bands-eye view.

Wed 1 May 2024

Corinne Bailey Rae’s Put Your Records On snap-shotted the summer of 2006. Her most recent release, Black Rainbows came out 2023 and it is obvious to hear how much she is relishing the full range of her unique voice and, as I was to discover when we spoke, her extraordinarily lyrical vocabulary.
