24 April 2021 - 25 April 2021 - 09.00AM - 2.00PM

April Scramble!

Spring 2021 will hopefully bring the return of the Scramble open day to Bicester Heritage, The Home of Historic Motoring.

Join us for our first-ever two-day Scramble to be held on 24th & 25th April 2021.

Perseverance is key, and we are once again delighted to announce that for the first time ever Bicester Heritage will be holding the April Scramble over an entire weekend!

Join us as we celebrate the start of Spring, warmer climes, blossom on the trees, Drive it Day, in aid of Childline, and hopefully an end to some of the restrictions we have all endured in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid 19.

We want to throw open the gates to our Home of Historic Motoring and welcome all of you to explore the latest additions to our beautiful former RAF Bomber Station while visiting the 45 industry-leading specialist businesses based in our beautifully restored historic buildings. This will truly be an open day event, unlike any other.

The April Scramble’s format will hark back to the early day Scrambles at Bicester Heritage, with a smaller COVID-compliant attendance of just 2000 visitors, and a curated display of historic cars along the tree-lined avenues of our 1920s ‘Technical Site’. Laid back, eclectic and with an ever-changing automotive display, our time-warp base will offer an unrivalled atmosphere.

Family and dog friendly, the Scramble is a wonderful way to while away the hours on a Sunday morning in the company of some spectacular machines at the best-preserved WW2 RAF Bomber Station in the country.
