Re: Vintage Motor Cycle Show – British Commercial Vehicle Museum 15th May 2022
Since your club’s last visit and show, the museum has undergone a huge transformation,
including a new heating and lighting systems throughout.
Lottery Funding & Sponsorship from major companies has permitted us to completely update
and modernize the facilities we offer.
The building and its visitor attractions and displays now bring praise from ALL who visit !
Attached are some photographs showing what can now be seen . . . . . perhaps you could
ask your website manager to use these in place of the outdated ones currently displayed please !! ??
YOUR MOTORCYCLE DISPLAY INSIDE THE MUSEUM
Vehicle exhibits in the museum are displayed so that there is sufficient space available between them to
allow visitors access around them. As with earlier craft fairs held, we can easily make space available for
a really fine display of motorcycles . . . the Timeline Display around the walls permits us to locate vehicles
close to their period of manufacture.
In order to set up this display, motorcycles have to be in place and on show by 10.00 a.m. when the museum
opens to the public. Access to the museum to achieve this will be available from 8.00 a.m. on the Sunday
morning until 9.30 a.m., OR, also the previous day (Saturday 14th) from 3.30 p.m. It will also be possible
for club members to display their machines in the museum car park . . . but ask that they do NOT remove them
until 3.30 p.m. at the earliest.
. It would be helpful to know well in advance the number of machines likely to be on display inside the museum
so that space can be reserved and made available for them . Also for those exhibiting outside, for the same
VINTAGE FILMS OF EARLY I.O.M. ‘TT’ RACES.
The museum now has a new State-of-the-Art, air-conditioned Conference Facility / Cinema. Throughout the show
we will be screening films featuring vintage motorcycles. There is no charge for visitors !
We also have a brand new cafe, in pleasant surroundings offering refreshments and a choice of sandwiches,
snacks, or meals.
I would appreciate it if your web master could replace old photos of the museum with some later
ones taken after the refurbishment . . . as attached. I several more which I could send him/her if
you advise me of his/hers email address.
Hope to hear from you shortly.
