Black plate wednesday

Black Plate Wednesdays 2017

After the successful launch of Black Plate Wednesdays last year, Shelsley Walsh will be opening its gates again this year to our new type of social event for those who want to display their classic cars and, at the same time, enjoy an English afternoon cream tea in the open air surroundings of the Courtyard.

2017 Dates:
17th May
21st June
23rd August

This event is focusing on anybody who has a 'black plate' classic car (i.e. pre 1975). Cars with black number plates will be specially parked in the Shelsley Paddock to form a display that all can enjoy. If you do not own a 'black plate' car, you are still welcome to attend and will be parked up in a separate display.

Tea will be served using traditional English china cups and plates, and will include freshly made sandwiches, handmade cakes and scones with homemade jam and clotted cream.

Members receive a discounted price; however non-members will also be welcomed to our beautiful venue. The price is £12 for MAC members and £15 for Non MAC members (per person), with the option to add a glass of our speciality drink for £2.50.

This is a midweek afternoon from 2.30pm to 6pm. We will be running two sittings for afternoon tea - one at 2.30pm - 3.45pm and a second one from 4pm onwards. You can pre-book into your preferred sitting and let us know if there are specific people you would like to be on a table with. The bar will be open all afternoon for both alcoholic and soft drinks.

In the event of inclement weather (as per the forecast two days prior to the event), the organisers will contact all parties and offer a new revised date. This is definitely best enjoyed as a sunny afternoon in the English countryside.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome!
