most people come to Brooklands in their cars, which has begun to cause a little problem with parking, particularly if there is another event on at the same time. When you arrive for an evening event please enter via the Brooklands Road entrance (with the sign ‘JTI Members Hill’) and park outside the Paddock – either at the end of the Finishing Straight, by the railings or in the main Campbell Car Park.

At our AGM we would welcome nominations


for new members of the Committee, so if you think that you have something to offer and would like to stand for election, please contact our Secretary, Kevin Lee, to discuss it further. The Committee meets six times a year, currently at 5.00pm on a Wednesday evening, and if you would like to know more about the roles and responsibilities of Committee members, please contact either our Secretary or myself.

Only food and drink purchased at the Museum may be consumed in those areas. In the case of inclement weather, food can be consumed as directed by signs on the Café door – usually in one of the Education rooms or the Napier Room.
