Here you will find information on the events that the branch or members of the branch will be present at, these will be a combination of our own events and other events that we take part in. At the moment the list also includes national/local events that we may not be at but that may be of interest to our membership. Events will be listed in chronological order for ease of navigation. Our regular monthly meetings are listed on a separate page, here.

Sun 11 May 2014Rover P4 Drivers’ Guild National Rally; Rockingham Castle
Rockingham Castle, built on the instruction of William the Conqueror, has been the Watson family home for 450 years. Prior to the Watson's ownership the Castle was held by the crown. There are very few other homes that have been continuously occupied for nearly 1000 years and within that time been owned by just one family since being relinquished as a Royal Castle. There will be a discounted entrance fee to the ground on the day of £7.50 per person. More details can be found at their website - www.rockinghamcastle.com
The rally will start at 10am.
To book for the event send your name, address and vehicle details (including model, year and registration number) to David Greenwell, 20 Woolthwaite Lane, Lower Cambourne, Cambridge, CB23 6BX (no SAE required).

Sun 25 May 2014Bressingham Rover Rally, Norfolk
Entry price held at £7 per head for the second year running, which includes entry to the gardens, steam museum and rides on the three narrow gauge steam railways. This is the charge made to us by the Bressingham Trust and represents a considerable reduction on the normal entry price. As those who have been before will know, Bressingham is a very attractive venue but space is limited and demand for tickets is always high so please book early to avoid disappointment. Regrettably we cannot guarantee entry for those who have not pre-booked.
In addition to the attractive formal gardens, Bressingham has an original set of steam gallopers and an interesting museum containing coaches from the Royal Train together with a number of standard gauge steam locomotives and stationary engines. It is also home to the fascinating ‘Dads Army’ exhibition. In addition there is a restaurant serving refreshments & light lunches. Alongside the rally field is a well-stocked garden centre, which is always worth a visit. In the past we have seen some unusual vehicles such as a P4 pick-up and a P2 woody, so if you have something unusual why not bring it along?
