Oxfordshire MG Owners Club’s annual event, ‘MGs in the Park’ will take place on Sunday 27 May 2012 at the fabulous Cotswold Wildlife Park, which is just off the A361 Burford to Lechlade road, two miles south of the A40 Burford roundabout in Oxfordshire.
The event starts at 10am and normally goes through until around 4pm.
This is Oxfordshire MGOC’s main event of the year and the largest gathering of MGs in the county. We hope to see as many MG owners as possible take advantage of this free day out.
Entrance to the MG Show, the Wildlife Park and all its attractions is free for the MG driver, with any passengers paying Cotswold Wildlife Park’s group discount price for entry.
SeeCotswold Wildlife Park visitor information for more details. Oxfordshire MGOC itself does not charge for entry into the ‘MGs in the Park’ event, so all in all, it promises to be a Grand Day Out and an inexpensive one at that.
In previous years, the event has attracted over 350 MGs ranging from TAs, MGAs, Midgets and MGB/Cs through to a fabulous turn-out of the newer MGF / TF convertibles and the various Z range saloons, including the ZT260s
The MG Owners Club will be in attendance, bringing with them a range of quality MG regalia for sale. In addition, there will be stands from representatives of other automotive associated organisations and also a raffle.
During the late morning, there will be a Pride of Ownership competition, with a trophy for the winner of each category and an additional trophy for the overall ‘Car of the Show’ (entry into Pride of Ownership is £3).
In mid afternoon, there will be a 25-30 mile run around the lanes and some of the pretty Cotswold villages in this very picturesque part of the county. We will provide a map and instructions, or you can ‘follow my leader ‘if you prefer.
Don’t forget to bring along any unwanted MG bits and display them by your car. Have a clear out of your garage and make a bob or two.
This is a fabulous venue with so much to see and do. Why not bring the family along, as the kids will love it too? (Cotswold Wildlife Park’s group discount price applies for any passengers attending MGs in the Park).
Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a leash. No picnic stoves or barbecues are allowed in case we inadvertently cook any of the wildlife!
No pre-booking is required. Just turn up on the day from 10am onwards and join in the fun Simples!
Make a date in your diary now. We hope to welcome you there on Sunday 27 May 2012.
