Apart from the hundreds of MGs what else is going on over the weekend?
Naturally the MGs will be the focus of the Centenary weekend but there will be other things going on as well.
For instance on Saturday afternoon at The Fairmile apart from the hot & Cold Buffet and MG display we’ll be featuring “Magic Marco” who will be wandering around the tables with his amazing brand of magic. Whilst Marco is bamboozling you we will also have a Jazz Duo creating the right atmosphere playing traditional tunes on the show field. To round things off on Saturday the MGCC President John Day and Richard Monk from the MGOC will be talking about 100 years of MG.
On Sunday you will have the whole of Brooklands Museum at your disposal including all their incredible exhibits – cars, motorbikes, pedal cycles and aircraft including Concorde. The flight to New York can get very busy so it is best to pre-arrange your visit in advance or as soon as you get there. There will be pop-up food outlets, coffee shops as well as the Museum’s own cafe to keep you fed.
In the Napier Room we will host feature speakers during the day including:-
Jonathan Suckling – owner of the MG ZTT X15 record-breaking car and previous owner of the MG EXF speed car. He’ll be looking at modern-day record-breaking right at the heart of the historic cradle of speed. Look out for some special guests to be announced.
John Mayhead – John has just published the definitive biography of Goldie Gardner. Goldie was no stranger to the Brooklands track and John will also be bringing Goldie’s MG TC along too – if you ask him he will sign copies of his book for you afterwards.
Music – The NewMugs ukulele group will be popping up during the day around the Museum and more music will be announced.
The list is not complete so keep checking back to see what is happening.
