Enjoy a summer of Jaguar at the Heritage Motor Centre

5th July 2013 Print

The Heritage Motor Centre is celebrating the iconic Jaguar with a number of themed family activities during the summer holidays from 18 July – 8 September. Visitors can take part in special events and activities celebrating the car’s history, design, brand and racing pedigree. Family activities include Jaguar themed Art and Craft Thursdays, the chance to view iconic cars from the Jaguar Heritage Collection, as well as talks and family tours. In addition, every Tuesday is Lego Technic day, where children can design, build and test their own Lego Technic machines.

The infamous Artist in Residence, Ian Cook of PopBang Colour, who paints using remote controlled cars, is back by popular demand on the 13, 14 & 15 August. Children can have a go at creating their own works of art using remote controlled cars and car parts. Ian has a huge following and always attracts plenty of attention from Museum visitors.

The new outdoor play and picnic area, built this year, is a great space for children to let off steam and enjoy a family picnic. For those that want to experience the thrills and spills of off-road driving a 20 minute demo ride on the Land Rover Experience is a must! Qualified instructors drive visitors around a challenging off-road course over rocky inclines, steep descents and some impressive water sections. Suitable for children 5 years and over.

Emma Rawlinson, Life Long Learning Officer at the Heritage Motor Centre stated “We are delighted to be celebrating all things ‘Jaguar’ this summer and have some fantastic activities laid on for visitors of all ages - whatever the weather!”
