The 2015 Social Programme is underway – and places have already been booked for events as far away as October.
If you haven’t already had the chance, please take a look at the social programme section of the blog – and book yourself a place (or two) for some of the forthcoming events.
The Behind-the-Scenes event held here at Beaulieu last week was very well attended and, I am pleased to say, very well received. Existing members were joined by prospective members, which I am pleased to say, led to several new members joining – as well as a number of exciting new opportunities – watch this space for further information once the details are confirmed.
Our next event will be the VIP behind the scenes tour of the London Transport Museum’s Depot in Acton, West London – on Friday 6th February – so if you’d like to join us, let me know as soon as possible. This event is exclusive to the Beaulieu One Hundred, begining at 10.30 and finishing at 12.30 with a light lunch.
The Depot houses over 370,000 objects, chronicling the development of transport in London over the last 200 years.
On this curator-led journey, you will be taken around the bus and rail sheds to see some of the most iconic vehicles in London’s transport collection. Not only this, you will also be shown around the poster and artwork stores, home to some 7,000 posters and original artworks and will see original enamel signage and maps from the early days of the world’s oldest Underground railway, an original station roundel, the world’s first spiral escalator and a London Transport Christmas Pudding.
Other February events include An Evening with Kevin Ball who will be talking about the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight on the 21st as part of our series of talks held here in the Museum’s lecture theatre.
The final February event will be on the 28th at Gaydon, where B100 members Angus Forsyth and Marcus Atkinson, have invited fellow members to Club Expo, a Hagerty sponsored day of talks, guides and seminars dedicated to members of classic car and bike clubs.
