British military weekend
British Military Weekend

Date: 01 October 2017

Location: British Motor Museum Gaydon, CV35 0BJ

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Discover Britain in wartime as the British Motor Museum hosts an impressive collection of British Military vehicles, living history re-enactments and a special WW1 history display.

Enlist now for the British Motor Museum's British Military Weekend

Within the grounds of the Museum visitors will be able to see a selection of WW1, WW2 and Post War British military vehicles including the replica Mark IV Tank used in the movie War Horse, on loan from the Tank Museum. The Royal Warwickshire Regiment 1914 - 1918 Living History Group will also be on hand performing dynamic displays and re-enactments alongside demonstrations by modern day bomb disposal teams.

Visitors can step back in time as the Museum transforms into World War I Britain with the re-creation of a WW1 encampment, a Field Hospital and a WW1 Trench. Sign up for Soldier School or take on ‘Kitchener’s Mission’ a fun family trail with activities along the way including decoding secret messages, bandaging wounds in the Casualty Clearing Station, Zeppelin spotting and making a Princess Mary Christmas Gift Tin to take home.

Visitors can meet a British ‘Tommy’ in the trenches to learn about the conditions endured by soldiers on the front lines and drop into our Field Hospital to discover how injuries sustained in battle led to the discovery of new medical techniques and the foundations of plastic surgery! They can also explore ‘B2737 - the Battle Bus’, on loan from the London Transport Museum. B2737 started life as a London General Omnibus Company bus and served Route 9 from January 1914 but when war broke out, it was commandeered for the war effort.

Seurat to Riley: The Art of Perception

Every day

Compton Verney’s summer exhibition will take you on a fascinating and stimulating journey that looks at the ways in which our visual perceptions have been explored by artists.

From the Impressionists onwards, artists have been inspired by the colour theories of scientific thinkers such as Michel Eugène Chevreul. The most famous examples are the pointillist works of Georges Seurat and his associates, in which colours other than those actually painted on the canvas are generated in the eye of the beholder through the application of small dots of primary colour.

During the 20th century, and culminating in the famous Op art movement of the 1960 onwards, the scientific and philosophical interest in perception extended into ways of communicating movement via static art forms. Early explorations of this can be seen in work by artists such as Helen Saunders, M.C. Escher and Josef Albers using tessellation, pattern, line, mathematics and colour, and sometimes optical trickery, to convey the sensation of movement.

This fascination with the optical in art remains strong amongst artists and makers today and this wide-ranging show features of the works of artists working since the 1960s, such as Jim Lambie, Christiane Baumgartner, Daniel Buren, Liz West and Lothar Götz. Their work is shown alongside later works of those who became stars of the ‘Op art’ movement in the 1960s and who continued to develop and explore new possibilities:  Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely, Jesus Rafael Soto, Julio Le Parc, Peter Sedgley, Jeffrey Steele and Carlos Cruz-Diez.
