New Year's Classics Parade
- Sorry this event has been postponed
Update - Due to Surrey moving to Tier 4, we have no alternative but to cancel our plans for New Year's Day and 2nd of January.
We are very much hoping to move this event to the Easter weekend instead and will update you in January as to whether this will be possible.
Timed-entry tickets for the New Year's Classic Parade are now fully booked on both days.
Previous event information:
We are excited to be running a new, COVID-safe event, for 1st and 2nd January 2021, so that you can see the New Year in at Brooklands, with a spectacular display of specially selected vehicles.
Our New Year's Classics Parade will take place over two days, and see 50 classic cars and motorbikes take part in vehicle displays and a 'People's Choice' Concours competition, with the chance to win a Brooklands prize at the end of the event.
The Brooklands Restaurant will open, tables must be pre-booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. There will also be plenty of food and refreshment stalls around the site. The Museum's exhibitions and activities will be fully open on both days, so it is guaranteed to be a great day out for all the family.
Whilst current COVID guidelines mean we can't do our normal New Year's Day meet, we are planning to hold a large-scale classic gathering, as soon as COVID restrictions are lifted.
Timed-entry tickets for the New Year's Classics Parade are now fully booked on both days.
