Organised by the enthusiastic and professional team at Greenwood Exhibitions, the Old Warden rally will feature ‘Red Dwarf’ star and engineering enthusiast Chris Barrie presenting his highly entertaining and humorous live show ‘The First 100 Machines’ in which he talks about his seven years of filming for TV documentaries including such diverse cars, planes and trains as the 250mph Bugatti Veyron, Avro Vulcan nuclear bomber, and the mighty Pacific steam locomotive.
Several hundred classic and vintage cars from all over the region are expected to attend and will be on display in the picturesque grounds of the Mansion House, Old Warden Park. Pre-booked entries receive a charming old-style licence disc memento and winners of the judged classes will receive a commemorative mug and a free entry to the Shuttleworth Collection.
Pre-booked entry for classic vehicles with up to two adults and two children is just £3 and the application form is available on the Greenwood Exhibitions website: www. classicmotorevents.co.uk. To mark the fact that nearby Biggleswade was home to the Berkeley Car company in the 1950s and 60s Greenwood are offering free entry to all Berkeley vehicles.
The general public is invited and encouraged to attend the rally where they will have the opportunity to see a wonderful collection of stunning vehicles and to meet with the owners. It can be a great day out for all the family as there is also the opportunity to visit the nearby Shuttleworth Collection of vintage aeroplanes and vehicles and the beautiful Swiss Gardens that lie a short walk from the park.
Public entry to Old Warden Park on the day will be £8 for adults and £4 for children. The Shuttleworth Collection, Swiss Gardens, and Chris Barrie’s ‘The First 100 Machines’ are by separate entry.
