The Austin 7 Centenary Celebration

19th - 24th July 2022 at The Fire Service College, Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire



The Connections restaurant in the Four Shires building can seat up to 400 people.

The kitchen is a large area suitable for help-yourself buffet meals; it has a pizza oven and a curry station.

All dietary requirements can be catered for.

All meals must be pre-booked; these are recorded on a smart-card issued to each entrant.


Several visits have been made by the A7CA to sample the restaurant and reports are extremely favourable!

There are set charges for the meals rather than individually priced menu items.

We can bring our own drinks into the dining room and they can provide wine.

There are two licensed bars: the London Bar and the Edinburgh Lounge.

They usually have guest beers and we will be arranging our choice of these.

Their prices are pub rather than hotel.

The London Bar has pool tables, air hockey, darts and table football, as well as satellite TV offering Sky and sports channels.

The Edinburgh Lounge is better for those seeking a quiet space.

Opening times are 7-11pm, but these can be extended by prior arrangement.

Moreton-in-Marsh has a very good selection of hotels, pubs, restaurants & cafés catering for every taste.

A list will be provided at a later date.


 In and around the rally field/marquee

There will be plenty of options to choose from and this food does not need to be pre-booked; it can simply be purchased on the day.

Breakfast rolls will be available each morning in the marquee; to include sausage, bacon and vegetarian option.

We have arranged for a variety of food vendors to be on site at the event each evening as people return from trips and throughout the evening entertainment.  They will also be selling food throughout the day on Saturday and into the evening. 

We plan offer a range including but not limited to.

·      Hot drinks to include tea and coffee 

·      Cold drink selection 

·      Bar within the marquee

This is subject to change but gives you an overview of the food court that we are planning to bring to the event.

Centenary Picnic – Thursday 21st July 2022 – 1pm onwards


The Thursday of the event is 100 years to the day that the Baby Austin was first shown to the world – in Selfridges in London.  


To celebrate this we plan to have a huge picnic, based around the marquee and to make things easy we have arranged for you to be able to pre-order a “Tea for Two” hamper available for £35 on the website when booking.  


The hampers have all been sampled (our thanks to the discerning young ladies of the Dunford family) and have very generous portions; you just need to bring your blanket and appetite!



As some items are seasonal there maybe slight changes to the selection included on the day. Cutlery, plates, cups, napkins, milk and hot water are all included.  We have selected a choice of three hampers for you to choose from and the contents of each are listed below. The picture show some samples of the food in the hampers.



The marquee bar will be open for the entire afternoon on this day.
