If you’re a Landy-lover like us, you might be craving being surrounded by like-minded people, and being approximately 5 feet away from a Land Rover at any one time. If that sounds familiar, we’ve put together some of the upcoming Land Rover shows in the UK, so you can get a piece of the action over the next 12 months or so!

Land Rover Shows and Events in the UK for 2021

With lockdown restrictions easing across the UK, we’ve got our fingers crossed that Land Rover events and shows will be able to go ahead as planned. If you find an event below that you are interested in, we highly recommend checking the organisers websites before booking just in case events are postponed and rescheduled. While we make every effort to ensure that these listings are accurate, details can change.

Billing Land Rover Show

When: 3rd July 2021

Where: Grimsthorpe, Bourne, United Kingdom, PE10 0LY

Price: From £10

It’s a 4×4 adventure show with a difference and over 25 years of heritage behind it. As well as Land Rover, you will be able to see bikes and classic cars, as well as other much-loved 4×4 vehicles. Held in Grimsthorpe Castle, over 3,000 acres, there is plenty planned and with the option to camp for the weekend, you can make a weekend of it with the family.

Blessed in location, you will be able to drive around the forest track, not to mention the drive to and from the site itself! The ticket price includes entry to the museum so it really is set to be a jam-packed day out for all the family.

Held at the British Motor Museum, this two-day event is a celebration of all things Land Rover! Choose to attend as an exhibitor or as a visitor, and enjoy everything that the weekend has to offer. From live commentary throughout the weekend, specialist talks and a chance to view ‘HUE 166′ AKA Huey – the first Land Rover ever produced. There will be kids activities on the agenda as well so this is an event for the whole family, so enjoy live music, entertainment, and pick up something to eat from the café while you are there.

Land Rover Owner International Show

When: 11th and 12th September 2021

Where: Oundle Road, Peterborough, PE2 6XE

Price: From £16

One of the most anticipated events in the Land Rover calendar, a two-day extravaganza filled with parts, people, and Land Rovers. Packed to the seams with things to do, you can visit the live action arena, club stands, shopping area, kids zone and, when it is all said and done, head to the bar and the camping area. Sounds good, right? Held at the East of England showground in Peterborough, this is not an event you will want to miss!

Fancy a spot of off roading during your visit? Each year LRO’s Adventure Club crew creates new challenges and obstacles to keep Landy owners on their toes too with their Advance Off Road Course!

Land Rover Accessories Of The Month: January 2021

Great British Land Rover Show

When: 21st November 2021

Where: NAEC Stoneleigh | Sunday 21st November 2021

Price: From £7.50

Finally we have the iconic Great British Land Rover Show, which is set to hit NAEC Stoneleigh on 21st November 2021. The good news is, if you grabbed a ticket for either of the 2020 events, you can roll that over to this event, or even save it for 2022. There is plenty planned for the event, including a 2.4 mile course that you can use to put your own Land Rover through its paces. It’s an off-road course and the All Wheel Drive Club will be right there on site to offer help and advice, so you can get the most out of your motor. On top of that, there will be a club area, so you can find and connect with different owner clubs, as well as an Adventure and Outdoor leisure zone, so you can have a good look around while you’re there.

Which Show Will You Be Attending This Year?

Whether you’re an exhibitor proudly showing off your Landy or an owner looking to meet other enthusiasts, each of the events listed above offers the opportunity for a fantastic day out with great food, drink, entertainment and of course, Land Rovers! As we enter 2021, details of more shows will become available, so watch this space to get all the information as it happens. And, who knows, maybe we’ll see you there?

If you are attending a show this year, we’d love to see some photos! You can tag us on Instagram or Facebook!
