Unless you’ve seen it for yourself, the Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble sounds too good to be true. A relaxed gathering of hardcore motoring enthusiasts, as well as casual car fans, it’s a meet to admire an incredibly diverse range of vehicles – all lovingly presented by their owners. Set against the backdrop of a time-warp RAF station, there are few better ways for petrol heads to enjoy their day of rest.
The pilgrimage to the old bomber base, Bicester Heritage, has become big news – with word spreading far and wide. Held three times a year, it’s quickly establishing itself as one of the main car events to experience. The last Scramble of 2018 proved no different – with a record 5500 attendees and the best selection of cars yet on display, and glorious sunshine all day long.
But, for the Newspress Creative team, the day was made more special because it marked the first public event since we opened our office on the campus. We’ve long been Sunday Scramble fans, well before the decision was made to open an office on the site, but for us there’s no better place to work in the automotive industry.
One of the site’s unique features are its residents. As a hub for historic motoring there’s a treasure trove of engineering businesses that call Bicester Heritage home. These guys live and breathe their work, and it’s their passion that makes the difference. That’s why they open their doors every Sunday Scramble and are happy to talk to the guests on site – sharing what they do and why it’s important to them. For the last Sunday Scramble, we were no different, with clients old and new, media contacts as well as friends of the business popping in for a chat, a cup of tea and a slice of home-made cake.
The opening of our office at Bicester heritage is start of something new and exciting, and the new Newspress Creative base will be our home we expand and tackle new challenges. We’re planning on opening our doors for the majority of public events held at Bicester Heritage, so don’t forget to stop by, say hello and enjoy some cake.
