OUR EVENTS

Having started in 2011 with the Donington Historic Festival, we continue to develop new events such as Land Rover Legends; the Thruxton Historic race meeting; and the Royal Automobile Club Historic Awards.

We are always happy to discuss new opportunities – whether these are new events launched in partnership with others, or you simply need services to support your own event.

Land Rover Legends

Land Rover Legends brings together the vehicles, the people and the stories behind the global name to celebrate everything special about Land Rover past and present.

In an exciting new development, the third edition of Land Rover Legends moves to Thruxton Circuit in Hampshire, now with a Summer date of 6th and 7th June 2020.

This famous venue offers a host of new features and activities, with the added bonus of the event sitting alongside the Thruxton Historic race meeting, also taking place that weekend. 

Donington Historic Festival

The inaugural Donington Historic Festival in 2011 was the first event promoted by Historic Promotions and – while we were optimistic that the event would be a success – we were totally blown away with the way it exceeded all our expectations.

 

Now firmly established as a three day event, (and with thanks to the ongoing support of the Donington Park circuit - now under the ownership of MSV), we continue to work hard to further enhance the Donington Historic Festival’s reputation as one of the ‘must do’ events in the European historic motor racing calendar.

The 2020 event takes place on Fri/Sat/Sun 1st/2nd/3rd.

Thruxton Historic

Following the success of the 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2018, 2019 saw the launch of a new annual two-day event now called the Thruxton Historic. Visitors are treated to incredible on-track racing action with glorious machinery from across the decades.

A host of activities also take place off track, including kids’ activities, Supercar Displays, Skid-Pan demonstrations and much more. The Thruxton Historic is the perfect summer day out for the whole family.

The 2020 event takes place on Sat/Sun 6th/7th June.

Royal Automobile Club Historic Awards

The Royal Automobile Club's Historic Awards are a new set of annual accolades recognising excellence and outstanding contributions to the UK’s historic motoring and motorsport industries. 

The Club has been at the heart of the motoring world since its formation in 1897, and the Historic Awards are a natural continuation of a rich heritage.

The winners of the inaugural Historic Awards were announced at a gala dinner at the Royal Automobile Club on 21 November 2019.

Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage

 

The Sunday Scramble takes place at Bicester Heritage three times a year and is mainly an excuse for thousands of classic vehicle enthusiasts to come together and enjoy a relaxed social gathering.  As well as enjoying the visiting classic cars, motorbikes and other vehicles, people can also glimpse inside the various specialist businesses now on site at Bicester Heritage, who open their doors throughout the event.

Historic Promotions organised the Sunday Scrambles in partnership with Bicester Heritage.
