Following the announcement of the UK Government’s roadmap for easing COVID-19 restrictions in England on 22 February 2021 and after extensive discussions between the event’s organisers, partners and venues, the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club has taken the difficult decision to re-schedule the Summer Jaguar Festival.
The Summer Jaguar Festival was planned to take place over the weekend of 14 to 16 May 2021 at Heythrop Park Hotel and Blenheim Palace. But despite the Government’s road map giving optimism for events to take place later this Summer, the intended dates and venues were no longer feasible.
Therefore, The Summer Jaguar Festival will now take place as a one-day event within the atmospheric surroundings of Bicester Heritage on 04 July 2021 and will celebrate 60 years of the iconic E-type, plus the anniversaries of the Mark 10, X-Type, XK8 and X150 as well as Jaguar’s first victory at Le Mans.
The event will include all the fantastic attractions we were all previously looking forward to, including the Bicester Heritage Track Experience. Features will include displays of special E-types, a class of ’61 car display, a sixties fashion show and an interview with Jaguar fan and presenter of Channel 4’s Grand Designs, Kevin McCloud MBE.
Tickets for the Summer Jaguar Festival 2021 will go on sale in April.
Entries for Concours D’Elegance and Pride of Ownership for the new date and venue will open alongside day ticket sales for the new date and venue in April 2021.
As a result of the date change and after consultation with Heythrop Park hotel, we have had to cancel all hotel packages and associated activities. So, all those who booked weekend packages for the previous dates and venue will receive a full refund. The change in venue for the Summer Jaguar Festival show day also means that all those who booked to attend Blenheim Palace will also receive a full refund on their day tickets.
IMPORTANT: The Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club asks specifically that, in the first instance, those booked to stay at Heythrop Park Hotel do not contact the club nor the venue regarding their weekend hotel package booking. We will be issuing refunds to all those that have booked both hotel packages and day tickets as soon as possible. We ask for your patience as we work through those transactions.
