BMW Car Show at Beamish Museum 28th April

I am a member of my local BMW car club and we are organising a BMW car show at Beamish Open Air Museum, Chester le Street, County Durham on the 28th of April.
We have negotiated a great price of only £7 per person (normal price £17.50 per person) so not only will you have a great car show to look around at, but also all the various attractions that the museum has to offer, have a look at http://www.beamish.org.uk

This is the first year of organising this event, so we are hoping it will grow over the coming years and become a large BMW event within the
North East area.

A few conditions that come with that price, have been imposed by Beamish Museum for any one who want to display their car.

You must arrive at the entrance between 09.30 to 11.00 on the 28th April, you then just pay at the gate only £7 pound per person. To aid entry it would be great if you could have the correct change. If you arrive after 11.00 you can still gain entry but you will have to park in the public car park, and you will have to pay full price.

There will be no movement of any car once you are parked between 11.00 and 16.00.( Health & Safety?)

You must be in a BMW badged vehicle, so tell all you friends and family, it is not just for Z3 (although that would be nice).

You DO NOT need to be a member of the BMWCC to attend this event.

If you let me know of anyone who will be attending, and I'll update this post .Then we can all arrive together, or you can just arrive as an individual what ever you want to do.

If one of the moderators could put a link on the main page that would be great.

I'll be going to this, good cheap day out at the price quoted. A few years since I've been to Beamish there has probably been a number of changes since I was last there.

Put me down for this. I have driven past the place many times on my way to the old workplace in Newcastle. I have never visited and have always fancied doing so.

Hi
I would have loved to have attended this show as I'm near Durham and Beamish is a fantastic day out but will be even better with a BMW car show.

Unfortunately I'm doing a half marathon that day as part of my charity challenge:
http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/challenge321

I recommend people from far and wide travel to this show. You will not be disappointed and will love Beamish Open Air Museum. Make a weekend of it and visit Durham.

Look forward to seeing the pictures.

Regards
Orinoco

Hi,

I will be attending as its just up the road from me (Gateshead).......however my panic.........!!!

I have just purchased my 3.0, Roadster, James Bond Blue (can never remember the colour) 1997........with nice oversized BMW 20" alloys !!

The down side it is currently sporting a masking taped on Drivers Mirror and requires a full valet and clean before I could bring myself to park it next to some of the absolute gems I have seen on the website.

7 Weeks and countining, am praying for some good weather and free time (I have a 3 mth old baby) over the next few weeekends !!

Cheers

Ian

Providing the masking tape is colour coded it is hard to tell that it's on :-D
I'm sure your car will look great see you there.

We've adjusted our diary so we are free on the 28th :D

Not sure when we're traveling yet as we keep passing Gragside on our Scottish trips and never have time to visit. So we're looking to see if we can find a hotel / B&B twixt Cragside and Beamish for Saturday night. Although a Yorkshire cruise is quite tempting :D

I have only just fixed the wing mirror although is sporting a sanded base awaiting paint and am currently stock piling various bits waiting for some decent weather to get out and fit them

Hope weather is ok.......its all grass at Beamish !!

It's just a suggestion do you all want to meet up before Beamish so that you all arrive together? If you arrive together there is a lot more chance of you parking together.

Can I suggest to meet at Durham Services Junction 61 around about 9.00 as it is about 25-30 minutes from there.

Unfortunately I will not be at this meeting point as I will have lots to do at Beamish on the day. But I'm sure you will be able to sort everything out between yourselves.

You can just arrive by your self if you like. Please post on here to let other members know what you all want to do.

Thanks see you there.

Are you calling at Durham services on the way as we are staying about 15 mins away from there on Saturday night and could meet up there? If not we could make our way across to the A593 and find somewhere to wait between the A1 and Beamish. In wet and windy Ireland until Wednesday so hoping that it's better weather for the weekend.

Hi Alan,

Will you put me down for this one.

I will meet the 'Yorkshire crew', if such a thing exists, at Ferrybridge at 7.30!

The weather forcast has picked up a bit so should be a good day. See you then. John.
