The British Motor Museum is to celebrate the British car with a special forum, The British Motor Industry, what is the road ahead? which will take place on Saturday 25 March from 9.45am – 5pm. 


Attendees can enjoy hearing from Britain’s motor industry experts in a series of lectures covering topics such as technological developments, automotive journalism and PR, motor manufacturing and design icons. Other topics include a strategic overview of the British car industry and the evolution of the historic motoring movement. Within each topic the experts will be posing the question ‘what is the road ahead?’ and the lectures will be followed by a question & answer session allowing attendees to share their own future predictions.

Stephen Laing, Curator at the British Motor Museum and chair of the forum stated, “We’re delighted to offer this special forum to celebrate the great British car. If you would like to learn about the evolution of the motor industry and our experts’ vision of what’s to come, then this event, hosted in the thought-provoking surroundings of the British Motor Museum, is perfect for you”.

Speakers include Steve Cropley, one of the most renowned motoring journalists and Editor in Chief at Autocar magazine, and Dr Jason Begley who is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Business in Society at Coventry University. 

The cost is £25 in advance or £30 on the day and includes lunch, refreshments and time to explore the Museum. Local community or education groups that are interested in attending this event may be eligible for a contribution towards the cost of their transport from our Travel Support Fund. This fund has been made possible through the award of a grant by Arts Council England.
