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 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.

If you are new member and unsure about Club runs see what is involved at
'Shall we do a Club run?  Some tips on what is involved'

You should also be familiar with 'Club Runs - Convoy Rules'

If you are unsure about attending a local show then these tips might help you.
So you want to go to a Rally? (a local show, historic car rally or village fete)

Coming Events

Whilst every effort is made to organise the events listed, it may be necessary to make a change
to, or cancel, an event at the last minute.  Additional events may also be added to the calendar.

 
Members can only participate in road runs and rallies with Austin Sevens
originally registered before 31st December, 1939.



Village shows/rallies have not been organised for two years and our local charities have consequently lost of lot of income.
Many events are reappearing this summer and need the support
of exhibitors and the public.

Other organisations events are not usually listed here but this year
perhaps an exception can be made.

The listing for each month may well have errors or ommissions but can be edited if the information is available.

PLEASE support these events if you can.
