Shows, Events and Meetings - what, where, when

The Guild attends many shows, over most weekends of the year, covering the whole of the country. If you're interested in finding out more about when and where to see us please contact us. The Guild stands and displays are always well supported by the members and manned by willing and enthusiastic members. Please feel free to visit us at any of the shows and have a chat - It's good to Talk.

All cars displayed on club stands must be owned by a member to be covered by the Guild public liability insurance, non-members cars will be refused entrance. Please make sure you carry your membership card to all shows to obtain members benefits. All persons attending any event do so at their own risk, and no responsibility can be accepted by The Ford Granada MK I & MK II Drivers Guild and their agents for any accident or injury, however caused, nor for any damage to or loss of motor cars or private property belonging to any member of the public attending any Drivers Guild event.

Please take time to read the next few lines as it contains some Do's and Dont's

If you are camping at any event remember to leave space between you and your neighbour. All vehicles that are driven on/off a rally field must have a valid tax disc and relevant insurance. All rally fields are classed as public areas so drivers must have a valid driving licence. Follow the instructions of the marshals even if you think you can do it better. The events list is not exhaustive, as some organisers don’t release their show dates till later in the year so keep your eye on this page for further updates as and when they come in.

The trend now is to do every thing on line including downloading the booking forms where there are no contact phone numbers - email is the only way.

Your car/s doesn’t have to be pristine to be shown all we ask is that your car is clean when exhibiting. Please remember the Guild has Public Liability insurance for any club stands copies can be requested from the general secretary.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to be booked in for a show, don't leave it to the last minute to do so. (Don't assume that Area Co-Ordinators will chase you up !) In order to put on a Guild stand we need to know numbers, so that the organisers & sponsors can arrange sufficient space for the number of cars wishing to attend. Book early to avoid disappointment. Please see Guild Magazine or contact your Area Co-Ordinator for full details of forthcoming shows.

Area Co-Ordinators and Members, let us know whats going on in your Area. If you particularly enjoyed a show let us know so that we can book again for next year. If you hear of any other shows or events and think others would be interested, please contact us. We will do our best to let everyone know, and they can be included here in the 'Diary Dates' section below.

If you are made aware of any show dates (many thanks for those so far received by the way !) please can we have these as soon as possible for inclusion in our Magazine.
