Freelander-driving historian and HMC employee John Bishop will be giving a lecture about the site’s history, and there will be a chance to visit the old control tower on the JLR site.
John says: ‘I’m delighted to be giving this lecture on the history of RAF Gaydon. I’ve always lived in the area and find the subject fascinating, so much so that I organised the 60th Anniversary event in 2002 and set up a small exhibition in the Museum at HMC. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with other like-minded enthusiasts.’
The lecture, from 10:30am-3pm, costs £30 per person and includes lunch (one course including tea/coffee) and entry to the Museum. Places are limited, so pre-booking is essential.
