Alfa Romeo Sunday

Up to 200 Alfa Romeo cars will be lined up along Queen’s Mead for visitors to view, from classic cars up to the latest models on Sunday 24th September.
 
The Southern Alfa Romeo Day is taking place at Royal Gunpowder Mills, Beaulieu Drive, Waltham Abbey, part of everything Epping Forrest is an important heritage site with a remarkable true story run by a charity committed to conserving and sharing the site and its fascinating 300 year history.

It’s easy to see why Alfa Romeo enthusiasts to love these beautiful, charming Italian cars who wear their eccentricities like items of delicate, tasteful jewellery. Alfas some say bring a Ferrari-like motoring soul to the masses.  
 
The Alfa Romeo story started in Milan on 24th June 1910 when a group of entrepreneurs and businessmen took over the Italian Darracq automobile company (based in Portello on the outskirts of Milan) from its French parent company, and called it Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili – A.L.F.A. Strolling around 200 Alfas that span this history will give you a chance to explore their appeal.
 
Fortunately for the family the price to the Alfa Romeo Sunday also includes Professor Nitrate’s Mad Lab with science shows and family activities including Rocket Making and Launching, the Test Range and T Shirt Printing. There are also exhibitions, and an introductory film included in your ticket.
