Packed full of firm favourites and some brand-new events, Brooklands Museum’s programme is set to provide many memorable days out throughout the year for all ages.

Our ever-popular New Year’s Day Classic Gathering kick-starts the season, the first of three Classic Gatherings in 2024. The second is the recently established Easter Classic Gathering on 30th March and later the Summer Classic Gathering & Autojumble on 2th July, where enthusiasts can grab a bargain amongst the large array of trade stands.

Our younger fans will be in for a treat with Paddington Bear making special guest appearances at Best of British on 27th May, which will combine the best of British manufacturing alongside traditional British family entertainment. Following Working Vehicles Day’s inaugural event last year, where the site was filled with working machines such as tractors, mobile cranes, airfield vehicles and more, the beloved children’s character Bluey will be joining us for special guest appearances on 20th July. And not forgetting the yearly favourite Emergency Services Day on 15th September, giving everyone a chance to thank the everyday heroes of our country, with PAW Patrol’s Skye, Chase and Marshall coming back to say hello.

All the usual favourites including Mini Day on 24th March, Motorcycle Day on 7th July and Autumn Motorsport Day 13th October are in the diary alongside London Bus Museum’s three popular events – Spring Gathering, 14th April, Summer Festival, 23rd June and Transportfest, 20th October.

Budding vintage and veteran motoring fans will be able to enjoy watching competitors tackle complicated courses in the Vintage Sports-Car Club’s annual Driving Tests taking place on 28th January. Later, the Brooklands’ Double 12 weekend will see the Mercedes-Benz World track packed with action on 15th June, and then step back in time to Brooklands’ hey-day, with Brooklands Double 12 Relived on 16th June. Featuring Driving Tests on the Finishing Straight, Pride of Brooklands Concours and Test Hill ascents, alongside vintage themed music, costume and food, the spirit of Brooklands will be well and truly reignited.

There will also be plenty of celebration events this year including the Brooklands Sunbeam 100 on 17th March, to celebrate the centenary of the Sunbeam Motorcycle Club, where all pre 1940s motorcycles will be welcomed to join in the spectacle. 60 Years of Ford Mustang will be held on 20th April which would also welcome all American vehicles and the MG Centenary will be on 19th May.

As always, Brooklands Museum will be celebrating the best of manufacturing from around the world as it hosts event days for specific nation’s marques with key favourites Italian Car Day on 4th May and American Day on 1st September. Following successful events last year French Day will be returning on 11th August and German Day will be on 29th September. See the site filled with amazing marques, complimented with busy trade and food stands along with entertainment to make for a fun day out with friends and families alike.

Explore the full calendar to see all the other events that will be taking place including fly ins, talks and club meets, and enjoy all the fun activities on offer during the school holidays for families to enjoy.

Furthermore, we are excited to announce we are reducing our child ticket in the New Year to under £10 when booked in advance. Or there’s our amazing value membership where you can enjoy unlimited admission all year round including our large list of events. Plus, there are a range of benefits including a bi-monthly magazine and discounts on member talks to name a few, and as a registered charity and protected heritage site, a Brooklands membership goes a long way in helping preserve the original home of British motorsport and aviation.

Plan your 2024 calendar and fill it with fantastic memories at Brooklands.
