The Cyril Scott Lecture - An Evening with Steve Cropley

25 October 2013


A BIG Thank you to everyone who came along to our annual Cyril Scott lecture on Thursday 24th October here at the Museum, which this year was presented Steve Cropley - Editor in Chief at AutoCar.

We had a great audience mix of fellow motoring journalists, friends of Coventry Transport Museum and fans of Steve Cropley who all very much enjoyed Steve's presentation talk and the Q&A session.

As with every Cyril Scott Lecture, the funds raised from ticket sales is donated to the charity of the speaker's choice, and Steve Cropley's choice is Coventry Transport Museum.

So the sum of £342.50 will be donated to CTM, and we thank Steve very much for his generosity and time.

You can keep up to date with Steve's work and that of AutoCar magazine at and on Twitter @StvCr
