1st January 2018

The British Motor Museum is inviting visitors to take part in two weeks of ‘Star Car’ interactive fun from 10 - 25 February 2018. There will be the opportunity to meet Parker or Lady Penelope on a family tour and discover the stories behind the Museum’s famous cars from TV & film, plus get creative with ‘Star Car’ crafts and complete the ‘Star Car Trail’.

Star Car Crafts offer a range of creative activities and take place daily. Children can make a ‘Star Car’ to take home - choose from templates of FAB1, Tomb Raider or Shaun the Sheep’s Land Rover. Lovers of Lego® can make a ‘Star Car’ out of Lego which will be captured on camera and added to the ‘Star Car Wall of Fame’. Those with artistic flair can draw a car for their favourite ‘star’ to be displayed, or to take home. Large Lego Bricks are also available every day for under 5’s to enjoy along with a self-guided Star Car Trail that will enable visitors of all ages to explore the ‘Star Cars’ as a family.

Parker & Penelope Tours will take place every day at 11.45am and 1.30pm, when costumed guides Parker or Lady Penelope will take visitors on a ‘Star Car’ family tour of the Museum.
