The British Motor Museum will celebrate the 100th birthday of the MG at a special event on Saturday 27 May. This event will appeal to anyone who loves MG cars, whether they have owned one in the past, know someone who has one or would simply like to see these iconic cars proudly displayed together. The MG Owners' Club, the Early MG Society, the MG Octagon Car Club, the MG 'T' Society, and the MG Car Club have all joined forces to organise this exciting centenary event.
There will be plenty for visitors to enjoy including a timeline of 100 MGs on display, plus the 1925 ‘Old Number One’, which was the inspiration for the MG sports car. There will also be a Spitfire flypast (subject to weather), MG Specialist traders, souvenir merchandise, MG archive films in the cinema, a Pride of Ownership competition, Sporting Bears charity rides and a series of road runs arriving throughout the day. Visitors can also enjoy entertainment from the Barn-Ettes, a popular vintage singing group.
