Calling all wizards, witches and muggles! Come join the Great British Car Journey for a very special Harry Potter-themed event for all the family on Sunday 31 October.
A 1960 Ford Anglia 105E, which was enchanted by Ron Weasley’s father in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – is flying into Great British Car Journey to take centre stage at the event.
The event also celebrates 82 years since the very first Ford Anglia model, the E04A, was released for sale on the 31 October 1939.
The Great British Car Journey Harry Potter Halloween Special promises to be a magical spectacle with family entry to the attraction discounted on the day.
On the day, the Ford Anglia 105E Owners Club will be bringing along a selection of the classic cars which were immortalised in the Harry Potter film to display at Great British Car Journey.
There will also be be a ‘Hedwig Hunt’ for children in the attraction’s collection of more than 130 classic cars as well as plenty of ghoulish goodies in the café and prizes throughout the day for visitors wearing Harry Potter-themed fancy dress.
Manufactured in Dagenham by Ford between 1959 - 1968, the Anglia, with its American-influenced styling, including a sweeping nose line and its prominent ‘eye’ headlamps, has rightfully claimed its place in the Great British Car Journey collection of classic cars, which boasts its own Ford Anglia 105 Estate.
In total more than 1.5 million Ford Anglias were produced, yet only around 320 remain today.
To celebrate the Ford Anglia’s birthday 82nd birthday, family tickets (2 adults and up to 3 children) are discounted to £30, a saving of £10. Entry includes access to the special Harry Potter Halloween event from 10.00am – 6.00pm (last entry at 4.00pm). Pre-booking is essential for the Halloween event.
