Here’s the programme of temporary exhibitions for 2018. Dates may be subject to change.
VANWALL’s GRAND PRIX TEAM WINNING FOR BRITAIN in 1958
MUST END SATURDAY 13 OCTOBER
Don’t miss our special exhibition celebrating the 60th Year anniversary of Vanwall Formula 1 Racing Cars winning the very first Motor Manufacturers Championship in 1958. The exhibition runs from 19 September to 13 October.
The Vanwall Racing Team, the vision of Tony Vandervell, was based in the works of his Vandervell Bearings Company in Cox Green, Maidenhead and Acton.
This exhibition tells the story of the trials, tribulations and triumphs of the 1958 Formula 1 Grand Prix Season – with Works drivers Stirling Moss, Tony Brooks and Stuart Lewis-Evans. The result was in the balance up to the last race in Casablanca!

Thames cruises in 2019
In 2019 our ever-popular River Thames cruises will take place on Thursday 5th and Monday 9th September 2019 (Provisional dates to be confirmed in January 2019). This year 96% of seats were sold and passengers enjoyed 5 hours on the river with lovely weather into the bargain. There was a live commentary en route to help them enjoy their trip from Maidenhead upstream along beautiful Cliveden Reach, passing Cookham and Marlow to Temple Lock and return.
