Bicester Heritage has taken the decision to postpone its next Scramble, due to be held on the 21st June, it is now scheduled for the later date of the 4th October 2020. The decision to postpone this event has been made in line with Government advice and the ongoing national effort to contain the outbreak of COVID 19.
Our sell-out Scramble events at Bicester Heritage regularly attract thousands of enthusiasts of all ages from across the UK and abroad. As such, the continued postponement of these ever-popular events is the most appropriate decision to take at this time and we hope that our combined actions contribute to ending the outbreak.
Daniel Geoghegan, Chief Executive of Bicester Heritage, commented; “We are certain that it is the right move to make in the current climate. We are working diligently to consider how we can welcome our supporters back to Bicester Heritage as soon as possible with new social distancing measures in place to ensure our visitors’ safety. The health and well-being of our visitors, specialists and colleagues remains paramount and at the front of our minds and we hope that we can begin to share our location with you once again in the near future.”
Pass holders for the April and June Scrambles are encouraged to join Bicester Heritage for the October open day event, however they will be entitled to a full refund through Eventbrite should they so wish.
We will also be holding another virtual event in June, our April #StayHomeScramble was a huge success with in excess of 1000 vehicles from vintage Bugattis to WW2 tanks shared by enthusiasts through our Facebook and Instagram channels. We hope to inspire the same classic motoring activity from home once more. In the meantime, the videos on our Instagram IGTV page are a must see for enthusiasts keen to learn more about Bicester Heritage and its past. .
The Bicester Heritage Technical Site and the Bicester Heritage offices in the Station Armoury remain open and will continue with business as usual. Bicester Heritage will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow the Government’s advice as the UK responds to the measures implemented to reduce the virus’s spread.
