Another successful Picnic for 2016 –
2017 event date: October 1st!

Sunday 25 SEPTEMBER 2016


at Mapledurham House, near Reading

A return to Mapledurham House for this year’s Porsche Picnic, once again following the tried-and-tested formula of a laid-back Porsche and VW show in conjunction with our sister magazine, Classic Porsche. Informality is the key-word, with no model-by-model parking and no concours, although the editors will be choosing their favourite ‘Top Six’ cars of the show. So bring your picnics (or indulge in a cream tea) and head to Mapledurham on 20 September. The venue opens at 10am, with the awards taking place at 3pm. Entry is £5 per person, with under-11s free.

Set in acres of beautiful grounds, just off the A4074 Oxford road, Mapledurham House is a Tourism South East award winner often seen in TV’s Midsomer Murders. Indeed, Mapledurham’s watermill was used as a location in Michael Caine’s 1976 film The Eagle Has Landed, and features on the cover of Black Sabbath’s 1970 debut album. The watermill is the only operational mill on the Thames, the flour it produces being used to make the scones for Mapledurham’s own tea room, which will be open on the day of the Picnic. Also open to the public on the day are the main house and watermill (from 2pm), visitors to the Picnic being offered a £3.50 discount on the usual £9 admission.
