Saabs United GB
A national 1 day event for Saab Enthusiasts
Next Event: Saturday June 8th 2019
The Saab community has just got closer together. Admins from a lot of the groups you are members of have got together to create the biggest possible 1 day event open to all Saab owners. We have tried to create this as central in the UK as possible to allow for travel times. Our chosen venue for Saabs United is East Kirkby, Lincolnshire. Held within the grounds of the prestigeous Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre, our cars will be close to the wings of the famous Avro Lancaster Bomber ‘Just Jane’ and around the grounds of the museum.
What We Stand For
The small group of event organisers came together through a need for a low cost 1 day annual event to try and cater for the whole of the UK, and beyond. We are all dedicated enthusiasts from a whole range of backgrounds and knowledge. All with a shared passion for our beloved brand. With year one having an attendance of 44 cars. Year two having 79. We would like to follow on from that success and try to bring you more each year. Whilst doing our bit for our chosen charity at the same time.
We look forward to seeing you there.
The Saabs United Events Team.
About Our Event
What We Hope For
Our third event after the amazing turnout over the last 2 years, created for every Saab owner. We have chosen Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre for our third year due to the superb facilities and scenery to create this amazing opportunity for everyone across the UK and beyond. Set in the heart of Lincolnshire, we have got a venue as central as was possible. Our cars will be parked by the wings of the famous Lancaster Bomber 'Just Jane' and around the museum grounds, trade stands TBC. Our chosen charity for this year, Lullaby Trust.https://www.lullabytrust.org.uk/
Entry costs will be £6 per person with reduced cost for museum entry, concessions for disabled and carers should be sought on the day, which will allow yourselves and your car through the gates into the grounds for the meet. You may also wish to have a photo underneath the Lancaster, to be arranged on the day with SaabsUnitedGB staff. With 2 toilet blocks, first aid, play area, cafe and various museum buildings. Complete with a gift shop, there is plenty to see and do along with some great cars and new people to meet.
Lincolnshire aviation heritage centre, offers a café that serves both hot and cold food, as well as this, the venue was primarily chosen because it offers so much for the family, The main hangar housing 3 aircraft and a huge array of artefacts from airfield life during world war II. Beyond the hangar there is many other buildings including the original control tower and a Memorial Chapel.
With so much to see and do at this unique venue, you will definitely be wanting to return to explore more. Our event is child and dog friendly, with great access for the less able, catering for all.
The venue itself is situated approximately 17 miles (25 minutes by car) from Skegness. It also offers Hideaway campsite next-door, which has a rally field for those clubs wanting to come as a group and grass only pitches, with or without electric. Also Jaspers B&B in the village of East Kirkby.
This event was designed to be a cheap and fun day out for all the family, if you stay in the campsite or B&B, it can quickly become a cheap weekend break, with talks about some evening entertainment and a snack van for after hours at the campsite nextdoor, Skegness is just up the road with a fabulous beach and in June, the weather can match too!
