There are now four events planned to celebrate the founding of S&D later this year.
you are going to join us at Gaydon in June
advance tickets are now available at a reduced price and need to be
purchased before Midnight on Thursday 9th

Sat Nav for directions it is recommended that you enter the British
Motor Museum as a point of interest rather than using the postcode.

Will owners of vehicles intending to attend please register with Tom Caren at the Museum. (There is no fee for entries.)
I have been advised of this event in Belfast on 3rd September and details will be available nearer the date. The photo shows the Titanic Museum located in the Belfast docks area.
taken soundings, we are pleased that there is considerable enthusiasm
for another Enthusiasts’ Club
event. This will be similar to the SD Remembered event of September
2004 and we think the additional features that we are planning will
be attractive. Tickets priced at £20.00 per person will be on sale from 4th April.
Former SD Employees will no doubt regard the event as an opportunity to meet up with work colleagues, but we feel the event will be of a wider interest. A buffet supper will be provided and a licenced bar will be open throughout the event.
There will be a display of material from the SD Archive that has never previously been exhibited, including:
original photo books and publicity brochures
very rare photos from the Garden City Collection
the Medals Board from the Reception Area at the Icknield Way
two superb models on loan from their museum homes (the Welfreighter submersible – subject to negotiation, and a ‘W’ type with Chelsea body)
four amazing models created from thousands of matchsticks by an SD Demonstration Driver
memorabilia, souvenirs, and mementos from many ex-employees
information boards featuring some of the people who made the company what it was and Top Ten of the most outstanding achievements of the company
audio visual displays including the company’s promotional film from the 1970’s
Please could you help us by informing any former SD employees with whom you have contact about this event.
This Exhibition is a combined project between the Museum at One Broadway and the SD Enthusiasts’ Club. A small Organising Committee have given invaluable assistance in planning the above two events.
