About Bicester Heritage Scramble
Founded in 2014, the Sunday Scramble began as a ‘cars and coffee’ get-together with some 100 visitors. The event has grown significantly, with over 7,000 visitors gathering at Bicester Heritage for the ‘season opener’ Scramble in January 2019.
The Sunday Scramble is now an event of national repute that attracts automobile enthusiasts from across the UK and Europe. It offers the opportunity to explore the former RAF Bicester base, the restored wartime buildings, and the specialist businesses based there. It truly is an open-day event, unlike any other.
Having been off-limits to the public for the best part of one hundred years, in the hands of the RAF and MOD, historic vehicle owners and enthusiasts can now drive through the gates to this once-hidden location – bringing their own pre-1990 vehicles to add to the diverse display of machinery that makes this event so spectacular.
With over 40 specialist motoring businesses situated in a jaw-dropping location, this is an open-day event unlike any other. See inside the workshops and showrooms at the freshly restored historic buildings of the former RAF Bicester, explore the unique site and take in its evocative atmosphere. Expect to find plenty of automotive displays, food stalls, workshops and showrooms to explore, an eclectic mix of cars and a great family-focused automotive experience.
Taking place on a Sunday morning, this event encourages historic motoring enthusiasts to get involved and bring their pre-1990 vehicles to join the eclectic display. From commercials to motorcycles, pre-War, veterans and modern classics, the mix is astonishing and ever-changing. Nestled between the 1920s RAF buildings and tree-lined avenues, this location has a film-set quality and a truly unique buzz.
