The Summer Jaguar FestivalSunday 4th July 9:00am 4:00pm
THIS EVENT HAS NOW ENDED
Following the announcement of the UK Government’s roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions in England on 22nd February 2021 and after extensive discussions between the event’s organisers, partners and venues, the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club has taken the difficult decision to re-schedule the Summer Jaguar Festival.
The Summer Jaguar Festival was planned to take place over the weekend of 14-16th May 2021 at Heythrop Park Hotel and Blenheim Palace, but it has been made clear that, although the Government’s road map gives us optimism for events to take place later this Summer, the intended dates and venues were no longer feasible.
Therefore, The Summer Jaguar Festival will now take place as a one-day event within the atmospheric surroundings of Bicester Heritage on 4thJuly 2021 and will celebrate 60 years of the iconic E-type, plus the anniversaries of the Mark 10, X-Type, XK8 and X150 as well as Jaguar’s first victory at Le Mans.
The event will include all the fantastic attractions we were all previously looking forward to, including the Bicester Heritage Track Experience. Features will include displays of special E-types, class of ’61 car display, a sixties fashion show and an interview with Jaguar fan and presenter of Channel 4’s Grand Designs, Kevin McCloud MBE.
The Trust are planning the following cars from our Collection to the Festival
- The First E-type Roadster – 77 RW
- C-type – NDU 289
- XK120 FHC – LWK 707 – the Montlhery 24/7 car
- TWR XJS
- Project 7
- Project 8
- XJR ‘Ring’ Taxi
We are also unveiling a piece of artwork which we have commissioned to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the launch of the E-type and the build of our own E-type roadster 77 RW.
