2019 Open Day Dates for the Diary

We are delighted to offer the following dates for our 2019 Open Day; these are a great chance for enthusiasts to visit our workshops, view some magnificent cars in varying stages of restoration (and occasionally some looking for new homes), learn from our skilled team about their work, and meet like-minded owners. Please contact us if you would like to book a space. We will be giving guided tours of our workshops and you will see our Mechanical restoration, Coachbuilding, and Manufacturing departments. Please allow approximately 2 hours for the tour.

Thursday 10th October

There is an award-winning local pub offering great food and accommodation in the village of Filkins, available for bookings. Filkins also boasts The Cotswold Woollen Weavers, and not far from us you can find the Cotswold Wildlife Park and idyllic town of Burford to add a little more variety to your day.

If you are a marque specific or a general car club, or a group of mechanically minded individuals come and see us, and get a feel for all aspects of vintage and classic car restoration.

We aim to limit groups’ sizes to 24 visitors. We also ask visitors to be extremely careful not to touch any of the vehicles, parts, tools and equipment. And please be careful of zips, camera straps, jewellery etc. as these can easily damage paintwork and/or get caught in equipment.

Last year all our Open Days became fully booked very quickly, so if you are interested in booking a space please get in touch as soon as possible.

If you would like to visit, please call or email us at least two weeks in advance to make sure there are enough places available (+44 (0) 1367 810 438).
