Leyland Society Gatherings

The Leyland Society Gathering 9th July 2017

The 2017 Leyland Society Gathering will be held at the Old Warden Aerodrome site of the Shuttleworth Trust near Biggleswade, Bedfordshire on Sunday 9th July 2017.  The site is both an operational airfield and also the home of the well-known Shuttleworth Collection of vintage aircraft, many of which are maintained in flying condition.  In addition to aircraft on display, visitors can tour the comprehensive workshops where aircraft from the collection are undergoing restoration or maintenance.  Alongside the airfield is an extensive Swiss Garden which is an outstanding example of the Regency style of landscape gardens.

We hope this new venue, in a more southerly location will permit vehicle owners and enthusiasts who have not been able to attend previous events at  Leyland the opportunity to join our annual Gathering.  The site has a large area of hard standing opposite the main hangers for the vehicle display and there is a cafĂ© where refreshments can be purchased.  Please note that normal entry charges will apply on the day and will cover the vehicle display, aircraft collection or Swiss Gardens.  Two free entry tickets will be provided for each vehicle entry but additional tickets can be purchased on arrival. 

You do not have to be a member of the Society to enter a vehicle for our display we welcome all Leylands so if you have a truck or bus we would be pleased to see you at our event in July.  The entry form can be downloaded here and please return it with 2 SAEs to Gary Dwyer at the address at the top of the form.  Overnight parking for entrants will be available on Saturday and Sunday if required but this must be specified in advance on the vehicle entry form.
