Thames Traditional Boat Festival – Henley on Thames

July 21, 2018 – July 22, 2018 all-day
Fawley Meadows
Henley-on-Thames RG9 6JA

This is a cracking weekend, with non-stop action on land, sea and air, including a flotilla of the Dunkirk Little ships,  and overnight camping is available. Gary Hammond is going again this year and happy to co-ordinate with other members if you fancy going along, he will arrange convoys and meeting place.

BAD CCC attended this event in 2017 and can confirm it’s a cracking day out. There is non stop action on the Thames and a carnival atmosphere on the river bank at Fawley Meadows at Henley-on-Thames.

This popular, long running event is now bigger and better than ever. It offers more attractions on the water, in the air and on the land, than ever before.

For example: This year will feature the largest display of traditional boats in Europe consisting of the fleet of Dunkirk “Little Ships” with MTB 102, Her Majesty’s row barge “Gloriana”, and the largest gathering of amphibious vehicles to date. There will be a WW1 air display team and of course a display of Classic Cars from Austin 7 club, Lagonda club, Ford T club , Healy 3000 club, and potentially BAD CCC plus many individual entries.

Gary Hammond will be camping on-site on Fri 20th- Sat21st July in his VW T2 camper van and displaying his Messerschmitt KR200 on both Sat 21st and Sun 22nd July.

It would be great if we could get a group from BAD CCC to attend on both days.
(Please note there is a pre-1969 cut-off date for Classic display cars)
However, there is a Special Interest group covering the years 1970-1980 that should open this event up to additional member’s cars.

If you are attending please let Gary know what day and he will arrange all BAD CCC cars to be together.
