Summer Concours & Party 2022 - LATEST

Friday 26th November, 2021

By Stuart Newman

Details revealed for Club's big extravaganza at Cubberley House from 17-19 June

The BDC’s annual showpiece next summer will be bigger and better than ever – a ‘three-day weekend’ spectacular, from Friday to Sunday, held at picturesque Cubberley House, at Ross-on-Wye, Hereford.

The idyllic 100-acre country estate is the home of 2019 Concours Best in Show winner Dean Kronsbein, whose beautiful home and grounds successfully hosted the Midlands Region Centenary Summer Gala Day in 2019.

To ensure the 2022 event will be one to remember, the superb programme will begin on the Friday, followed by a host of exciting activities (tours and excursions) on the Saturday with the highlight being a sumptuous champagne reception and five-course formal dinner (see below).

The weekend’s festivities will climax on the Sunday with the eagerly awaited concours when the cream of our Members’ cars will be judged. Cars from the superb Bentley Motors Heritage Collection and entertainment in the form of a brass band and singing girls will add extra spice to the day’s summer party ambience. You can also add extra zest to your day by attending a vineyard tour and tasting excursion.

The Summer Concours & Party weekend will support the RAF Benevolent Fund and Help for Heroes charities.

RECEPTION & DINNER
The pièce de résistance of Saturday.

Once you’ve enjoyed the day’s hectic activities, you’ll then get glammed up in your best bib and tucker for the evening’s entertainment. 

This will get under way when you’ll once again meet up with friends at a champagne reception on the terrace of Cubberley House itself. 

This will be followed by a sumptuous five-course formal dinner, served with fine hand-picked wines, in a spacious and luxuriously-bedecked marquee on the estate lawns. 

Short speeches, including from Club President Duncan Wiltshire, and much socialising will provide a fitting finale to the grandest of soirées.
