Enthusiasts’ Ensemble 2014 – Pride of Longbridge Weekend – 15th Anniversary Launch Celebrations. 12th-13th April 2014
2014 will see the 15th Anniversary of the Rover 75 sales launch back in 1999. With this in mind, we think that this justifies a greater celebration than a simple, standard one day event.
To that effect, we are offering a weekend package for the weekend of the 12th/13th of April next year.
The itinerary is as follows:
Saturday 12th April
Pride of Longbridge at Cofton Park. The Enthusiasts will be in attendance at the ever popular annual event along with a variety of other Longbridge-produced vehicles.
Evening. The 75 & ZT Enthusiasts have organised a dinner, bed and breakfast package at the Devere Hotel at Studley Castle, the former Austin, BL and latterly MG Rover training and conference centre. See here for more details: http://www.deverevenues.co.uk/en/venues/studley-castle/
We hope to announce a few more details about the evening’s events soon.
Sunday 13th April
On the Sunday morning, there will be a convoy from Studley Castle to our venue for the Rally – Ragley Hall.
Ragley Hall was host to the Rover centenary in 2004 and was used in such photos as:
Photographs outside the hall will be possible on the day, where we also plan to have a timeline of cars ranging from the very first cars, right to the last in 2005. There will also be the regular categories for members to win prizes, along with a few other surprises.
We have been allocated 25 rooms at Studley Castle, on a first come, first served basis. We may have the option for extra capacity, once these 25 have been taken. However, please note: Should any of our allocation remain un-booked 6 weeks prior to the event, these rooms will be made available to the general public.
The offer rate is £105 dinner, bed and breakfast based on 2 people sharing a double or twin room.
Ragley Hall would normally cost £8.50 per person for access the grounds, however for members attending the rally, entry is based per car at £10.00 regardless of how many occupants. Tours of the house can be booked on the day at £2 a person.
We look forward to seeing you there next year!
As more news is announced for the weekend, details will be given on the forum.
