As you know only too well, 2022 sees the 50th Anniversary of the launch of the amazing Lancia Beta.
To celebrate this, we are delighted to now be able announce details of a full weekend event package - designed and created around the Lancia Beta and its owners.
Set in delightful rural Oxfordshire, we have booked the Milton Hill House Hotel near Abingdon. This beautiful venue offers easy access from the M40 and M4 motorways, and the A34 trunk route.
For those of you who remember the fabulous 40th anniversary celebration back in 2012, we have managed to keep the price this time almost the same - plus add value into the package too.
Weekend kindly sponsored by: Betaboyz parts and Auto Italia Magazine
The details of the full weekend are:
Friday 9th September 2022.
Arrive at the Milton Hill House Hotel from 2pm onwards. Receive your complimentary "goody"bag, Check into your rooms, explore the grounds, use the hotel's complimentary pool and leisure facilities, enjoy a welcoming drink and meet your fellow Beta attendees. We will even make sure that the hotel has an area where you can freshen up your Beta following its journey!
There will be an informal evening BBQ (or indoor buffet depending on the weather) followed by a light hearted General, Motoring and Lancia related quiz. (Well, these things always start off lighthearted, but competition always ensues!).
Saturday 10th September 2022.
After a comfortable night sleep, and a hearty full English Breakfast in the hotel restaurant, we will all meet up by our cars for final titivation, before heading off on a tour through beautiful Oxfordshire. A nice relaxed pace, and you will have clearly printed, comprehensive route details to follow (or just keep that Beta in front in sight and hope they go the right way!). There will be places of interest where we will stop enroute to regroup during the drive. We will all then end up somewhere very exciting, where we will spend the afternoon exploring, before heading back to the Hotel to relax and get ready.
Saturday evening we will all enjoy a formal Italian themed Gala Dinner at the Hotel (menu options to be advised). There will be an interesting after dinner speaker for all to enjoy, and afterwards, we can decamp to the Bar for post dinner nightcaps.
Sunday 11th September 2022.
After another night of comfortable sleep and another fabulous breakfast, there will be a morning presentation entitled "Know your Beta". This workshop style presentation will cover the intricacies of the Beta model range and should clarify the differences between the various versions, series and facelifts! It will be open to any day visitors who wish to attend.
And after this we will decamp to display our cars, where we hope many day visitors will join us with their Betas too. We will have a Beta display area where we can get our Beta's together - lets aim for at least 50 Betas for Beta 50th. There will be prizes - some for the shiny Betas, some for the most used Betas, some for the most interesting Betas.....etc. You get the idea.
We will have the Classic Car press in attendance. There will be some lovely photo opportunities of Betas together, and again, it's a great opportunity to meet up with fellow Beta enthusiasts. There will be other Lancia enthusiasts too, as we hope to have other Lancias joining us too.
After the prize giving, we will say our "good-byes" and journey home. Full of happy memories of a weekend well spent.
The package price for all of the above for a couple sharing a twin or double room, to include your Saturday and Sunday breakfasts and Friday and Saturday dinners is just £395.
Family Room Rates, Doggie rates and One Night package are available on request.
