- What is the JaguarForumsUK - Great British Day Out for JaguarOwners?
The event is a one day annual event for Jaguar owners/drivers. Everyone meets at a start point, registers for the event and collects their free route map prior to travelling in convoy to the main venue. At the main venue attendees can win prizes, awards, attend talks by specialists, loads of free advice, essentials at show prices, forum stands, club stands, club allocated areas and more.
The event costs £5 to register, but that does include free entry into the prize draw, guaranteed inclusion in the awards voting, and you can even enter our free Christmas competition and win a great Christmas present for your Jaguar.
We are not-for-profit and support both the RNLI & the Rotary Club - our focus is supporting you, and your Jaguar connecting you to the support you need whilst helping society outside of Jaguar, both at sea and in the local area.

- Who can attend the event?
Our event is open to anyone who owns or drives a Jaguar - because of the layout of our event it is well suited for everyone from families through to diehard petrolheads. Whether your Jaguar is your school run daily runner or a restored classic that only comes out occasionally - you are equally welcome and equally in with a great chance at the class awards on the day.
- Does the event run for just the one day a year?
Yes and No.. the event itself is a one day event, however it has things going on through the entire year ranging from news updates, discounts, info about the previous and upcoming events, mini days out, quizes, competitions, new features, even a Christmas competition that runs every Christmas.
This is all included in your £5 registration, so it is genuinely well worth keeping in touch with the event right through the year :-)
- Why is our event just £5?
We feel that our event should be available to anyone, irrespective of income or budget - putting attendees in touch with Jaguar orientated companies, forums, & clubs that we trust, giving you support, and a great day out. Most importantly great company and incredible Jaguars - all with a story to tell :-) We arrange discounts for attendees, talks by specialists, awards to celebrate Jaguars from all walks of life, and even competitions - all this is included in your £5 registration fee, to help you enjoy your Jaguar no matter what your income.
- Do I need to have a classic, or showroom quality Jaguar to be able to attend?
An emphatic No! :-) Our event welcomes Jaguars from any walk of life, so whether you have the latest showroom model, a cherished classic, a school run, or daily runner you are equally welcome.
We have specialist companies on site that cover almost every Jaguar need from dealership support, to paint and leather care, repairs, servicing, upgrades, alarms, DPF cleaning, and so much more all equally applicable whatever your Jaguar.
- What disabled access does the event have?
The event starting point has good access for disabled attendees, however our main venue, whilst it does have good disabled access for the buildings and services, may represent problems because the event itself is sited in a large grassed area. The grassed area is generally level and you can attain wheelchair access in and out but this does depend on the weather. If anyone is attending and would like to discuss disabled access/facilities please drop us a line using the Contact Us page.
