36th ALL BRITISH DAY - Sunday February 9th 2020
at Echunga Recreation Ground in Echunga
The All British Day is an annual display day and picnic for enthusiastic vehicle Club Members to meet and show off their British motor vehicles. It is held in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, on the second Sunday of February each year. Open to the public from 10.30 am to 3.00 pm.
2020... will be a celebration of two proud British companies.
Armstrong Siddley commenced manufacturing in 1919 and has a rich history in both the aviation industry and motor car production. Over the years Armstrong Siddeley merged with other companies that also produced aero engines and motor cars. We look forward to hosting the Armstrong Siddeley Car Club as a feature club in 2020.
W.O. Bentley formed his first company in 1912. He was an engineer who designed engines for aircraft, motorcycles and of course cars. Bentley manufactured rotary areo engines throughout WW1. The first Bentley car was delivered in 1921. The prestigious car brand that bears his name lives on today, and will be celebrated as a feature 100 years of Bentley at All British Day 2020.

We are celebrating 36 years of the All British Day. It's a great day out for motoring enthusiasts. Some of the features include:
HOT WEATHER POLICY....In the event of a catastrophic fire warning for the Echunga district or a forecast temperature for Mt Barker given by the Bureau of Meteorology as at 6.00pm the day before the event of 40 degrees or more, the event will be cancelled. If the event is cancelled, sorry no entry fees will be refunded but memorabilia will be posted out.
2021... All British Day will feature 'British Working Wheels'
British vehicles have been used in Australia almost since the birth of the British motor industry. They have helped open up this vast country, and been depended on to help build some of Australia's biggest projects, like the Snowy Hydro Scheme. From the humble push bikes used to deliver the post, to police motorcycles, trucks, tractors, vans, utilities, company cars, and military vehicles. There are many British marques that can lay claim to being to being 'British Working Wheels!'
We look forward to hosting this theme in 2021.
