15th May 2022Brookhill Hall Classic Car and Bike Show Gates open 10 am - 4 pmThe show is set within the historic grounds of Grade II listed Brookhill Hall. Offering a spectacular day of motoring heritage ideal for enthusiasts, families and day trippers. The event will feature an exciting display of vintage classic and modern classic vehicles along with an informal concours and awards ceremony.

The Rover P4 Drivers’ Guild have been invited to attend the event by the South Yorkshire Guild Regional Group, and Richard Wilkins who runs the group is very happy to welcome as many P4s to the event as would like to attend – there is plenty of room for visitors. There will be a number of other vehicle makes and models present, so it should provide a lovely day out to see a wider variety than our normal show. With the Guild National Rally taking place this year at Roverfest then this event gives an ideal opportunity for P4s to gather at the usual time of our rally in May.

There will be live music, food and stalls. Check back to see who is confirmed.

Entry fee is £5.

Church Farm, in the village of Weston Underwood, Buckinghamshire MK46 5JS
** IMPORTANT ROVERFEST 2022 UPDATE **

The Roverfest Committee has been informed by Sywell that they are now unable to meet our previously agreed expectations and have cancelled our booking. The Roverfest committee has been able to relocate the event and have been lucky in finding, at short notice, a suitable venue 15 miles from Sywell.

Roverfest 2022 will now take place at Church Farm, in the village of Weston Underwood, Buckinghamshire MK46 5JS for the whole weekend of the 5th to 7th August 2022. Plans are in progress to provide onsite catering to satisfy existing rally bookings. The alternative venue is larger than that offered at Sywell and can accommodate limited camping and caravanning.

Rally attendees, who are currently booked at the Aviator Hotel may receive a message cancelling their booking and incorrectly stating the event has been cancelled. Roverfest 2022 HAS NOT BEEN CANCELLED just re-located.

Any queries please contact support@roverfest.uk

The JRC/Roverfest Committee hopes that you will join us at Roverfest 2022. To book your place, www.roverfest.uk

At 2.00pm we convoy a short way to the Lakeland Motor Museum, which is a joy to behold with a vast collection of vehicles and memorabilia. Again the café is a great place to meet up and enjoy tea, coffee and excellent food and wonderful Cumbrian cakes and delicacies. It is a fabulous museum, very well laid out and a mine of facts and figures from our motoring past. On Sunday morning from 10.30am we meet at Levens Hall, a charming Elizabethan family home with amazing gardens and topiary. The Levens Kitchen is well worth a visit for lunch, the fare is vast and very delicious. This is an informal gathering with a picturesque setting for the full range of Rover cars. If you intend to attend the weekend event book somewhere to stay as early as you can as it gets very busy there. Please email me at rovercars49@outlook.com or call me on 07958 962751, so that I can I can keep check on the number of cars that will be attending the event.
