Bring Your Own Vehicle Day returns after a three-year break on 9 October, with vintage buses and British vehicles as the theme for the event.
The day will begin at 10.30am at Transport Museum Wythall in south-west Birmingham, with a guided tour and a ride for our group in a vintage bus. Friend of the Guild Denis Chick is a trustee of the museum and will be present for our visit.
After we leave Wythall, attendees will follow a scenic route to Warwickshire where we will stop for a self-guided tour of the British Motor Museum at Gaydon. The museum is home to the largest collection of historic British cars, as well as a range of significant Jaguar and Daimler models, prototypes and concepts curated in the Collections Centre.
Anyone interested in attending is reminded that the event is for members to bring their own vehicle, and not a press vehicle – although any vehicle owned by a Guild member is welcome.
A £10 fee is payable to reserve a place. Drivers on this event may enter Transport Museum Wythall free of charge, with fees for passengers only. Guild members have free entry to the British Motor Museum on production of their Guild membership card. Passengers are welcome, with any entrance fees for them payable on the day.
Prices at Wythall are £7 for adults and £4 for under-16s. Depending on numbers, we may be able to take advantage of a group booking rate at the British Motor Museum, which will result in reduced prices from the standard entry fees of £14.50 for adults and £9 for under-16s. We will confirm exact prices for any passengers nearer the time.
We will announce details soon of an opportunity to stay overnight before the event in a hotel with other sttendees, and a full schedule will be sent in advance of the event.
To reserve a place, email Simon Harris, with Guild members and passengers confirmed on receipt of the £10 fee paid into the Guild bank account.
Please include details of the vehicle you plan to attend in, and the names of any passengers.
