Stansted Park, Rowlands Castle, Hampshire – Sunday 29th May 2022

A return visit to this splendid venue in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. Easy road access, from all directions and even brown Heritage signs to guide you from the A3 (Rowlands Castle) or the A27 (Havant). We are grateful to be able to display our motor cars in front of the stunning Edwardian mansion which stands in 1800 acres of parkland and ancient forest within the South Downs National Park.  In 1983 the 10th Earl of Bessborough gave Stansted Park, the Arboretum, his family home and its beautiful contents to the public.  The state rooms are furnished as though the 10th Earl was still at home giving the visitor a real sense of a bygone era; the extensive Servants' Quarters below stairs are brought to life by the very knowledgeable and friendly guides. Guided House Tours are offered on a first come, first served basis and depending on Social Distancing guidelines on the day. See the Entry Form below to book Tour tickets.

Bring your own picnic OR purchase food and refreshments from the Pavilion Tearoom, which is fully licensed and open from 9am and serves a delicious selection of cakes and homemade light lunches.  The really excellent Garden Centre, which has its own restaurant or the Stansted Park Farm Shop which stocks the finest food and drink from Sussex and Hampshire artisan producers and a kitchen that prepares local, seasonal lunches.  It is advisable to book any food with the above Stansted venues.

There will be the usual RREC attractions of lighthearted Club car judging (presentations this year in front of the House portico), a raffle (with really worthwhile prizes), a wandering Jazz Band, display vehicles and an Ice Cream van. Please complete the tear-off Entry Form below and return with a C5 SSAE (plus your cheque or bank transfer details). Entry ticket(s), Meeting Advice, and pre-booked rally motor car list (£15.00 entries) will be posted out in your SSAE on 5th May 2022.
