just to update  

IWM have upped their game and we have no option but pass this on  we are now committed as a local area to fund  a £1500 minimum hire charge for the site for which we get 100 tickets  we add £1 to give us some funding to run the event  so tickets this year will be£16 adults . there are no child discount tickets so we take a hit and reduce this to £10

we have little option or we cancel this event after 26 years of success.

so were hoping the sun shines everyone turns up and we sell 100 tickets to cover our risk  any extra tickets are at the same rate .  there is no  escape 

so add it to your diary and donate to our tea and buns , or we have to walk away from this .

thanks  Pete  ( not a happy bunny)

there's a plan in place to push this out , to as many as we can  including many of the online events calendars 

the past few years have been around 160 so we should clear the bottom line ok providing it doesnt snow or have a tsunami

can be one of the biggest gathering of triumphs , we do a raffle we cant mention and we take donations for our excellant tea coffee and rolls and cakes 

all against the rules but wasnt me M'lud..

or we couldnt run this show ..cant do it on peanuts   its run and organised and funded  by Herts and Beds with shop and support form HQ

yes duxford rules this year   impose the car club entry closes at 12

ie just before lunch 

once in it gives full access to everything they offer and closes at 6pm 

on the day you also get 10% off classic wings   DeHaviland Rapide  flights  


not sure what their circuit and bumps flights cost on the day , was a lot less than £99 shown on here 

and apart from aircraft there's the enormous land warfare collection of trenches. tanks , artillery and  army transport 

even getting shot at leaving a landing craft  great fun .

Thanks Mike , over the years the odd clash has happened ,in the past other big events

(Bus and helicopter shows)  have taken over any date selection but  this year 

Most of september was available so we picked earlier     hence its the 1st

Tea coffee  filled rolls  and apple pie  etc available as usual

High quality not a raffle raffle start  with a trolley jack  and some  nice  bottles

Note we are not allowed to SELL food or have a RAFFLE 

there are ways around this we  take donations and the raffle is a prize giving  ......a play on the rules 

Iwm dont make things easy.

Please book some sunshine ,

 Bern will be doing VALUATIONS  and Martyn runs the  club shop

Pre orders can be collected at Duxford to  save postage if you ask when ordering

Now we are close to September 1st

The sites as last year on mostly  grass some tarmac, 

Entry  is via the main public carpark   where the car club entry gates will be open  from 9am to 12pm 

So dont turn up late you wont get in 

The admission  fee   includes the FULL  museum not just the Cars   open till 6pm 

So you know we take £1   to run  this event   and IWM take £15 of the  £16  entrance fee!!!!!

Club shop and valuations are on site ready to help and take your pocket money

We will be providing refreshments for a donation , thats tea coffee rolls and cakes etc

The Not a Raffle Raffle has things like Trolley jack and Drone and Gardening , and some bottles  etc  may be some cars stuff !!!

Car prizes are aimed at much loved not most polished , 

So  Gates open 9am  its CASH only as we dont   own a card reader

Hope to see you there 

Pete and Herts and Beds Team
