After a quick call yesterday lunchtime to remind them i had emailed them i finally got a reply from the Imperial War Museum last night about holding a meet at Duxford, It would seem that they have a lot of car clubs who hold meets there, as it would seem that the only date available to us would be Sunday 31st August, or we could share with another car club on the 21st September, So for us to be able to book a meet We'd need a minimum of 50 cars and a maximum of 1000 (yeah right..) to get the Discounted price of £9.95 Per Person (normal price is £16 Per Person)
Would we get enough interest in a meet at Duxford on either of these 2 days? Personally as i've not been to Duxford for well over 10 years i'd be up for it And i know that both DonPaul & MattB would also be interested, so just another 47 cars required... To get that many cars / people i'd imagine it would have to be open to all regions, so invite away.
Below is a copy of the email from IWM Duxford..
Thank you very much for your email and for your interest in Duxford.
Yes, we do allow car club meetings at Duxford - you could either hold your regional or your national meeting here. The area we usually use is between our American Air Museum and Land Warfare Hall. This area can hold about 1000 cars depending on how you are going to park them.
The minimum amount of cars we ask for is 50 and we would charge £9.95 per person. This is a discounted rate on our normal admission charge of £16 and you still have access to the whole of the Museum.
June, July and August are some of our busiest months, the only available day at the moment would be Sunday 31 August. However, there are two alternatives. Firstly, you could come along on Sunday 21 September. We do have another car club meeting that day but they usually do not need the entire area.
The second alternative would be to come to our Classic Car Show on Sunday 10 August. However, I would restrict it to about 50 cars from your club.
I hope to have answered your initial questions.
If you would like to discuss the event further or would like to come for a site visit, please do contact me.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
