Elves Hanging Out rdjucd

The British Motor Museum has Christmas wrapped up with a host of festive lunches in the roof-top Sky Suite, a selection box of family-friendly Christmas activities, and a wide choice of Christmas gift ideas.

Christmas lunches are available from 12pm – 2pm on 8, 11, 12, 13 and 14 December. Visitors can enjoy a seasonal two-course or three-course lunch with all the trimmings, glass of wine or soft drink and crackers for £29.95 for 2 courses or £34.95 for 3 courses. (Member discounts apply). Entry to the Museum is included for all diners on that day, and lunches must be pre-booked.

Christmas activities take place from 8-23 and 28-30 December when the Museum is open from 10am – 5pm each day. Children can take part in the Great Elf Hunt to search for the elves hiding amongst the cars! Younger visitors can also enjoy Christmas Crafts, including making a motoring-themed Christmas Tree decoration, designing a personalised Christmas card/thank you card and colouring in festive-themed sheets. There’s also the opportunity to make a Princess Mary box. In 1941, during WW1, Princess Mary wanted to ensure all soldiers on the front line would have a gift for Christmas and these boxes were filled with treats including chocolate, a card and pictures of the Royal Family. All activities are suitable for 5 plus years and included within the Museum entry fee.

‘New Year Family Fun with LEGO’ runs from the 2 – 8 January. Children can tackle the ultimate LEGO car-building challenge, and search for car parts in the family trail - the perfect way to get 2024 off to a flying start! Activities are suitable for children aged 4 plus.

Looking for inspiration for that perfect Christmas gift? Home to over 400 iconic classic and vintage cars, the Museum offers a great day out for petrolheads, culture seekers and lovers of all things British, so why not give a Gift Voucher, which is available to purchase online, and every purchase supports the charity. Museum Membership gives Members free entry to the Museum, including all special weekend show days. Members are also offered exclusive opportunities to preview great new exhibitions, take a private tour and attend Members only events. Membership is available from just £42 per year.

Heritage Certificates are an ideal gift for anyone who owns a cherished classic car and are available for just £48 plus P&P. The Certificate is an official ‘Certified Copy of a Factory Record’ showing the car’s specification as it left the production line. Details are taken from the original production records created by many of the leading British motor manufacturers. Deadline for UK orders is 15 December.

Other fantastic items available from the online shop include a Replica Tax Disc priced at £26, Mini and Land Rover 32GB USB sticks priced at £14 and £16, respectively, a reversible Land Rover Scarf priced at £14, an archive image tea towel at £7.99, a fine bone China mug at £9, and a bespoke 1000 piece British Cars of the 60’s Jigsaw priced at £18.70.

Brand new for this Christmas is the chance to gift your child an unforgettable creative experience at the “Let’s Animate Saturday Club”! Run by professional animator Gemma Foy, this 5 week animation club offers budding animators a place to develop and sharpen their skills, inspired by the Museum’s stunning collection of cars. Tickets are now on sale for the 5 weekly sessions, from 24 February to 23 March 2024, at £100 per child. There are only 16 places available, so act quickly to avoid disappointment!
