Thursday 29 – Friday 30 December 2016

For a taste of the weekend this is last year’s Open Workshop video!

The Shuttleworth Collection will be hosting its annual Engineering Open workshop on Thursday 29 – Friday 30 December 2016. It’s where the Collection opens its doors to areas not usually available to the public to allow access to all the latest projects. Everyone will get the chance to chat to our skilled engineers and volunteers, who love discussing what goes into rebuilding vintage aircraft, maintenance and the skills needed to keep these aircraft flying.

Our vehicle workshop team will also be on hand to talk about the on going restoration projects, what it takes to preserve and run the Collection’s historic Veteran, Edwardian and Vintage cars and bikes.

It’s a fun day out for the whole family, which will include trails for children throughout the workshops and talks and demonstrations throughout the day. The restaurant will be open for delicious festive treats.

IPMS Brampton will be holding free Airfix ‘Make and Paint’ workshops throughout both days. Build and paint your Sea Harrier Airfix kit there and then, with advice and support on hand from the Brampton Scale Model Club if you need it. A great activity for the kids, grandkids or the young-at-heart!

Our Agricultural display will feature the Living Van, chaff cutter, tractors, and other exhibits, with volunteers on hand to explain how it all works, and the time and energy that goes into restoring items such as the Chaff cutter.
