The British Motor Museum is celebrating the British car this summer from 23 July – 4 September with a festival of family activities!
Different workshops are running Tuesday – Thursday each week throughout the summer holidays, with activities including building British cars with LEGO®, creating your own card Land Rover, Mini or E type Jaguar and creating a car out of balloons.
