Social Events


The Midland Automobile Club has a very strong and active social section, organising talks, factory tours, museum and garden visits, film shows, barbecues mid week lunches and treasure hunts.

Taking place throughout the year either at the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb or at other venues, we always try and put on an event that caters for everyone’s interests. Members of the club are encouraged to put forward their ideas.

Some of the social events that we have organised have included trips to the Williams F1 Heritage Collection, Prodrive, JCB, BloodHound SSC, Highgrove Gardens, Morgan Motor Company, Jaguar Cars, talks from Whizzo Williams, Philip Serrell, David Franklin, Matt Neal, plus fashion and packing tips from Catherine Clark Hats and Capsule In A Case and even a Ghost Walk!

Black Plate Wednesday has now been running for two years and has proved to be a great success, providing an opportunity for members and non-members to bring their ‘black plate’ (i.e. pre 1973) cars to Shelsley Walsh to form a lovely display and then enjoy an afternoon tea in the Courtyard. We are pleased to say that we will be holding four Black Plate Wednesday events in 2018. This year we have added a few twists to the events, holding two of the events ‘on the hill’ in the Members’s Tent area and two in the Courtyard.
