Happy New Year - here's to 2013!

01 January 2013

Wishing all our friends, visitors and supporters a very happy new year - we are pleased to announce a really exciting programme of exhibitions for 2013:

22 March to 16 June 2013
999 – Emergency Vehicles Exhibition

This special exhibition will feature a variety of vehicles from all three emergency services, including items from the 1920s to the present day.  999 will be a brilliant exhibition for the whole family to enjoy, and will include a number of special family events during the run. 

Admission is free of charge.


12 July 2013 to 5 January 2014
War Effort

War Effort, our major new temporary exhibition for 2013, will throw the spotlight on the British motor industry’s huge contribution to the wartime production, during World War II. 

The exhibition will tell the incredible story of how in the 1940s, the UK’s motor companies supported the military, by building so-called ‘shadow factories’, and turning over production to building thousands of military vehicles, staff cars, munitions and other military equipment.  War Effort will take visitors on a very personal journey through the lives of some of the people who worked in these factories, and will shed particular light on the fascinating stories of the women who were drafted to work in the factories, many for the first time in their lives. 

Admission is free of charge.


PLUS don't forget - ScooterMania, our current exhibition of British scooters from the 1950s & 60s is still on, and runs until 3rd March 2013.
