  1. Where's Wally? and Rocket Science at the British Motor Museum this half-term!

    Posted on

    This October half-term the British Motor Museum is delighted to be participating in the national Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search! Families will be able to hunt for Wally around the Museum to spell out a spooky phrase from hidden letters, and receive a special “I found Wally!” bookmark on completion of the search.

    The activities are part of the national Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search, organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books, to celebrate the release of the new Where’s Wally? book, ‘Spooky Spotlight Search’. There will also be the chance to enter the Where’s Wally? and Kids in Museums grand prize draw competition to win an ArtFund Family Membership and a bundle of Where’s Wally? goodies.

    Families can also enjoy Rocket Science with ‘Professor Pickle and Doctor Pumpkin’ every day at 11.30am, 12.30pm & 1.30pm except Wednesday 28 October. The 25 minute live scientific spectacular is full of cool, interactive demonstrations and rocket inspired science.  Shows will take place in a large conference room with marked out spaces to allow for social distancing.

    On Wednesday 28 October from 11am - 3pm there will be an outdoor Rocket Workshop delivered by the STEM ambassadors from MOD Kineton. Children can design and build their own Rocket and see how far it flies from the pneumatic rocket launcher. These activities are suitable for 5 years plus with adult supervision.

    Emma Rawlinson, Life Long Learning Officer at the British Motor Museum said “We are delighted to be able to host a range of fun and COVID safe activities for visitors to enjoy over the October half term! In addition to Where’s Wally? and Rocket Science there’s also a family tour to help you explore the Museum via your mobile device and an activity bag to take home!”

    The Museum will be opening daily for half-term from Friday 23 October to Monday 2 November. All visits must be pre-booked with no more than 6 in one party, in line with the ‘Rule of 6’. Visitors must wear a face covering at all times and observe social distancing.

    All activities are included in the Museum admission. Activities are suitable for 3+ years, unless otherwise specified. Activity bags are subject to availability.

  2. Stafford Classic Bike Show Cancelled

    Posted on

    Due to the worsening situation and rising infection rate of Covid-19, Mortons Media Group has reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics show, planned for October 10-11 at Stafford County Showground.

    This long-established event has always been a firm favourite with motorcycle enthusiasts from all over Europe, and with the increase of cases worldwide, Mortons feels this is the safest thing to do, for the well-being of visitors and traders.

    Not only is the show a highlight in the event calendar, it is also a strong social event for visitors at the show, with people naming a ‘day out with their friends’, as one of  the top three reasons for going. Given the current restrictions with the ‘rule of six’, and the increasing localised lockdowns nationwide, Mortons believes this is the most responsible course of action to take.

    The Stafford Shows will continue in 2021, with the popular Carole Nash International Classic MotorCycle Show scheduled to take place over the weekend of April 24-25. The team will be looking to bounce back by putting on the biggest and best show of its kind in order to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

    Meanwhile Mortons will continue to hold regular outdoor autojumbles at Newark showground and Kempton Park, as currently planned.

     

  3. There will be over 500 bikes at the KICKBACK ride-in later this month.

    Posted on

    The Carole Nash 27th Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show, one of the best bike shows in the world, is going ahead… but with a twist. Visitors will be welcomed to the show on October 10 and 11 at the Stafford County Showground, but only if they have bought their ticket in advance from our website www.staffordclassicbikeshows.com/october

    You can purchase either a Saturday or Sunday ticket, but if you don’t have a ticket, you will not be allowed into the show.
    The total number of visitors will be limited on both days to keep everyone safe, allow for social distancing and keeps the show in line with Government guidance.
    See the safety plan at www.mortonsevents.co.uk/covid and see what we’re doing and how you can help to keep everyone safe.

    Visitors should bring their face covering or mask so they can access the indoor space at the show, again in line with the government advice. Whilst the show won’t look and feel like a ‘regular’ Stafford, it’s sure to be a fantastic day out for the modern classic bike fan!
