Great news coffeeholics! – Grouch Coffee join the party

We’re delighted to announce that Grouch Coffee, the locally based specialist barista coffee company, will be providing fantastic coffees, teas and goodies at the Festival.

Kelly, the founder of Grouch will be working her magic from her wonderful Italian 3 wheeler.   Using coffee roasted in Bristol and milk from local dairies this is brew you won’t be disappointed by.

If you’re wondering about the name? We’re all a grouch until we have that first cup of good coffee!

Flying the flag in South East Asia

I have recently returned from a couple of weeks holiday in South East Asia. My travels included Nong Nooch Gardens in Thailand. Amongst the many specialist gardens, imagine my surprise and delight when I came upon the Car Garden! As you can see  this was a collection of vehicles but you’ll also notice the UK was very well represented indeed by a patriotic Morgan and Mini and trailer combo.  We are expecting some very special Minis and Morgans at our Festival in August so I hope owners of these marques are pleased to see they are being promoted in such a beautiful place.

StrEat Pizza join add to the Festival atmosphere

Husband and wife team Craig & Rachel Tyldesley, the creators of  StrEat Pizza, will be joining us on the 12th August for the Cotswold Festival of Motoring. From a restored 1970s caravan they will be creating fresh handmade pizza prepared right in front of you and baked in their traditional wood fired mobile pizza oven .  Craig and Rachel believe in championing local artisan and ethical producers.  They use the finest seasonal ingredients to deliver a taste sensation that’s deliciously different – can’t wait!

Happy New Year!

So, 2018 is finally here and a very Happy New Year to all our supporters.  Today we went along to the Classic Motor Hub near Bibury for the Cotswold Classic Car Club’s New Year’s Day Meet.

It was a busy event with over 300 classics in attendance and many more visitors enjoying the display and bonhomie.  Despite a wet start to the day it stayed fine for the meeting itself.  We will be collaborating with the CCCC later in the year and look forward to welcoming their members to the Cotswold Festival of Motoring in August.
