“The Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble is one of the best events on the calendar.” – Octane Magazine
Six years on and the Sunday Scramble is an event of national repute, attracting enthusiasts from across the UK and Europe, offering the opportunity to explore the former RAF Bicester base, the restored wartime buildings and the specialists businesses based here. It truly is an open day and car meet unlike any other.
Starting with some 100 visitors at the first Scramble in 2014, the event has grown significantly with over 6,500 visitors gathering at Bicester Heritage for the ‘season opener’ Scramble, January 2020.
Having been off limits to the public for the best part of one hundred years in the hands of the RAF and MOD, historic vehicle owners and enthusiasts can now drive through the gates to this once hidden location and spend a Sunday morning freely exploring the Technical Site, specialists businesses based here and bring their own pre-1990 vehicles to add to the diverse display of machinery that makes this event so spectacular.
Expect to find plenty of automotive displays, food stalls, workshops and showrooms to explore, an eclectic mix of cars and a great family focused automotive experience.

Bicester Heritage has been actively monitoring governmental and WHO advice regarding the development of Coronavirus COVID-19 over the past weeks. With a dramatic shift in the global response, it is clear that COVID-19 will have a profound impact beyond our health and day-to-day activity. As a result, Bicester Heritage has the made decision to postpone the April Scramble, due to be held on the 26th April, to a new date on the 21st June 2020.
It was our intention to hold the second edition of our Super Scramble at Bicester Heritage on the 21st June, however this event will now be postponed until 20th June 2021, allowing us to hold the rescheduled April Scramble in its place.
The nature of our Scramble and Super Scramble events, attracting more than 6,500 enthusiasts of all ages from across the UK and abroad, means that the postponement of these ever-popular events is the most appropriate decision to take at this time.
Bicester Heritage is disappointed not to be able to go ahead with the original dates as planned, and we know that the rescheduling of both events will be sad news for the many event supporters who had made plans to attend, both enthusiasts and exhibitors alike. However, we feel that this is the best course of action at this juncture and we look forward to welcoming you to Bicester Heritage on the new event dates.
