The hugely popular Gaydon Land Rover Show returns for its eighth year on 7 & 8 May at the British Motor Museum. The dedicated weekend show will once again showcase hundreds of Land Rovers from 1948 to the present day and is one of the biggest days in the calendar for Land Rover fans and families.
The Jaguar Land Rover Experience will be returning to the show with their daunting obstacles to showcase the technology and capabilities of the Land Rover and Range Rover models. There will also be the chance for visitors to ride in one of the new Defenders over the various obstacles.
Well-known Land Rover journalist and specialist Emrys Kirby will host two workshop talks on the Saturday about the Land Rover Stage Two Register vehicles. At the centre of the show will be the Arena where Dave Barker will lead an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team, providing live commentary and inviting owners, restorers, club members and enthusiasts to share their stories.
Visitors can also enjoy live music from The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra “Symphonic Six” who will be playing at the show for the first time as a small troupe on the Saturday. Whilst the popular singing trio ‘My Favourite Things’ will be returning for another year to perform on the Sunday.
Families will enjoy the ‘Mini Me’ kids trial with mini vintage and modern Land Rovers touring around the show arena. Children are invited to come along and display their ‘Mini Me’ Land Rover vehicles with all Miniatures welcome.
