Donington Historic Festival
Whether you’re a long-time enthusiast or have never seen a historic racing car in action before, you’ll find plenty to entertain you at the Donington Historic Festival. After just four years the event is already firmly established as a major fixture on the international historic racing calendar, attracting many thousands of spectators, hundreds of world-class historic racing cars and huge numbers of classic car club displays. Donington Park has a fabulous history, from the days of the pre-War Silver Arrows GP cars right through to modern times, and the Festival calls upon all that history, creating a fantastic atmosphere at what is arguably the best spectator circuit in the country. As well as watching such iconic machines fighting it out on track, spectators can wander round the race paddocks, enjoying free access and getting up close to the cars and stars. And there are always plenty of off-track attractions and live action - including legendary Group B rally cars, autojumble and memorabilia stalls, cafes, bars and food outlets.

BRESSINGHAM ROVER RALLY
This year’s annual Bressingham Rover Rally will be a very special event celebrating the club's 40th anniversary. It will be held on Sunday 24 May and with the theme of 'Rover Through The Years' will have one or two special displays, so is well worth a visit. The entry price has been held at £7 per head for a further year, which includes entry to the gardens, museum and rides on the three narrow gauge steam railways. This is the charge made to us by the Bressingham Trust and represents a considerable reduction on the normal entry price. Space is limited and we expect demand to be high so please book early to avoid disappointment. Any unusual vehicles, perhaps echoing our theme, would be particularly welcome. Regrettably we cannot guarantee entry for those who have not pre-booked
