There will also be hundreds of classic cars from many clubs including the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club. The JEC have been invited by Classic Nostalgia to have a special area for Members.
Date: Saturday 22nd July 2017 - Sunday 23rd July 2017

This superb annual event, over two days in July, attracts hundreds of classics to the oldest hill climb venue in the World and for 2017 JEC members are invited. Normally restricted to pre-1977 cars, for our members this has been waived and Jaguars of all ages are welcome on our stand.
The hill climb is 1000 yards long with a 1:7 rise at its steepest point with drivers reaching speeds of up to 140 mph. Excellent viewing on all points of the hill bring you really close to the action.
Along with a full programme of championship climbs, there is a unique celebration of Group A World Rally Championship cars celebrating their 20th anniversary, celebrity interviews, a full stage programme of singing and dancing, food outlets and 100's of classics. Not forgetting an air show!

We will have our own dedicated parking area and, unique to the JEC, all ages of Jaguars & Daimlers will be in attendance.
It will also be the first outing for our new “Roadshow” featuring our Club van with its bright new graphics and large awning, allowing us to present the Club and its partners to Members and other Jaguar enthusiasts' at venues around the country.
We will also have the Club Raffle car on site raising money for our 2017 nominated charity, the Prince Philip Trust Fund, and be joined by SNG Barratt, offering specialist parts and advice to help keep your car on the road.

Deep in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside, the venue is pure nostalgia, it has its own 12th Century church and working watermill. There has been a mill on or near this site since 1308, but the current mill shows three stages of construction spanning over 300 years. It was last used to grind animal feed around 1923.
