Early X-mas party this year.
We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to our UK Arrival Party on December 14th at the Folkestone Harbour Arm. It’s going to be the ultimate Christmas Party, with hundreds of Land Rovers both old and new from across the UK and Europe making the journey down to see us arrive on home turf after our long journey from Singapore.
If you haven’t registered yet, please do as we’ve almost run dry on the free Land Rover Car Passes! You might want to do so quickly… as we’re thrilled to announce our guest for the day – a very special Last Overland edition of Land Rover’s New Defender! Land Rover’s newest model will be making a rare public appearance alongside Oxford, to mark the end of Oxford’s latest epic adventure.
Defender’s won’t be the only historic reunion – we will also be reunited with our talisman, Tim Slessor, who’ll be joining the expedition for its final leg from Folkestone up to London, accompanied by Oxford’s owner and restorer Adam Bennett.
Click here for all the minute by minute plans for the day. (Please note – there is a planned strike on South Western Railway in December, so do check your travel plans if you’re not coming by car.)
And it’s only right and fitting that our journey will end with one final reunion, with the team from Singapore Tourism Board. Without their vision and support, The Last Overland would never have got off the ground. It’s been a delight to celebrate 200 years of shared history with our friends from the other side of the planet.
Oxford will be flagged over the finish line at The Hilton Park Lane at 16:30 by the High Commissioner from Singapore. Do come and say hi if you’re in town!
Want to come and see us before we cross the Channel back to the UK? Well please do in Brussels, Belgium on December 12th. We’ll now be featuring in the So British! Exhibition at the annual Autoworld Expo with our partners from JLR, come and say hello! We’d love to see you.
