Events Diary
our events for the months ahead

Our programme of events each year is centred around monthly runs so that members are encouraged to use their 'Seven' in order to preserve it.  Club holidays are often supplemented with a spring and autumn weekend breaks.  Other events are arranged as the need, or interest, arises; one example is a 'Teach-in' if sufficient members are interested in learning about a specific topic.

CA7C offers something for every member, whether they are a lanesman who likes to get wild in the countryside, a static rally fan who enjoys displaying their 'Seven', or a tinkerer who can’t live without the smell of hot oil and the feel of spanners - it is all available for the Seven enthusiast.

Members also support local summer shows and the Annual Rally of several up-country Austin Seven Clubs, but details of other Club's events are not shown in this listing.

Any Austin Seven enthusiast visiting Cornwall is welcome to meet up with us during the day for a chat, or join one of our Club Runs with an Austin Seven as a guest.  Please contact Andrew Jarmin for details nearer the date of the event.
