British Motor Museums

4th December 2015

Brooklands Readies itself for the UK’s Biggest Classic Start to the New Year.The gates of Brooklands Museum will open at 9am on Friday January 1st 2016 to welcome spectators and participants to the now legendary New Year’s Day Gathering, believed to be the biggest New Year’s Day turnout of classic vehicles in the country. As usual, there will be a Winter Barbeque in addition to the Sunbeam Café for lunches and snacks (guaranteed turkey-free!) and the chance to ‘Race, Fly or Drive’ in the state-of-the-art 4D Theatre located opposite Concorde, which will be open for the half-hour ‘Concorde Experience’. For youngsters, the Discovery Centre and soft play area inside the Sunbeam Café will be open so there will be something to entertain everyone. All those arriving in pre-1973 vehicles, and interesting ‘younger’ vehicles, including supercars, should enter the Museum site via the Campbell Gate off Brooklands Road (KT13 0QN), while extensive parking for spectators’ cars will be in The Heights off Wellington Way.
