From 1pm onwards you'll be among the first to explore the new museum, and there will be some exciting entertainment on Millennium Place:

• Stunt shows from international legend Terry Grant.  His is a brand of stunt show unlike any other – throwing his cars from side to side, sliding around obstacles and people, standing on the roof of his moving vehicle and much more.  You name it, he can do it!

• A ‘Trailblazing Cars of the World’ display hosted by racing driver and television presenter Amanda Stretton, and Harry Metcalfe, EVO Magazine founder, classic car collector and host of YouTube’s hit car channel Harry’s Garage.  This will be a display of some of the most unique cars the world has ever seen – we’re keeping the details under wraps for the moment so as not to spoil the surprise!
