Glevering Gathering - 1st to 3rd June 2018, Wickham Market, Suffolk.
Organised by the Rootes Group of East Anglia
Having provided a superb backdrop for the Sunbeam Alpine and Tiger meeting in 2017, Glevering Hall is running a similar event once more in 2018. Our host there, Chris Hurlock, is coordinating the weekend event between the 1st and 3rd June under the auspices of the Rootes Group of East Anglia.
He would be delighted to see as many Rootes Group vehicles as possible for some, or all of, the weekend. A full programme is in prospect and the organisers are sure anyone coming will have a great time. To whet your appetite here is a summary of the programme.
