A celebration of 100 years of Jaguar cars is being staged at Newby Hall, Ripon on Sunday 14 August.
- Sunday 14 August 2022
- 10am – 4pm
The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club will showcase the marque at its Summer Jaguar Festival which is expected to attract hundreds of vintage, classic and contemporary Jaguars. This year, the event marks the centenary of the launch of a small company in Blackpool called Swallow Sidecars that created the beginnings of the recognisable Jaguar brand we all know and love today.
Jaguar made its name producing eye-catching cars and were just as successful in international motorsport as they were in building luxury limousines that have transported generations of the world’s VIPs. The festival will include displays of Jaguar cars from across the eras – and the proud owners will be on hand to share their enthusiasm for their prized cars with visitors.
There will be a moving motor show with commentary from Jaguar personalities, including motoring journalist Wayne Scott and Michael Quinn, the grandson of Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons. All this plus live music, a craft fair and shopping village all promise a great day out for car owners, enthusiasts and visitors alike.
Held in the magnificent setting of the park at Newby Hall, this year’s event is expected to bring Jaguar’s rich history to life with a display of cars on the Moving Motor Show from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust. These significant cars, including the Queen Mother’s limo and the legendary European Touring Car Championship winning XJ-S race car are usually displayed in the trust’s museum, but for this event visitors will get a chance to get up close and see them moving.
Stuart Gill, Commercial Director at Newby Hall, said:
We’re proud to be hosting the Summer Jaguar Festival, a new show for Newby. Our stunning parkland will perfectly showcase these magnificent vehicles.
The admission price to the festival includes entry to Newby’s award-winning gardens, adventure playground, dolls house and teddy bear exhibitions.
