About JDC Anniversary Festival

The Jaguar Drivers’ Club will be joining with the JEC over the weekend of 14-16 May 2021 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the E-Type. We anticipate this being the largest gathering of E-Types ever held and with expressions of interest already coming in from around the world make sure you put the date in your diary so you don’t miss this E-Type extravaganza. The event is also for the Mk 10 60th & X-Type 20th.

60th Anniversary E-Type Celebrations

JDC LogoJEC LogoTo celebrate next year’s 60th anniversary of the launch of the E-Type, the Jaguar Drivers’ Club is getting together with the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club to provide a weekend festival in May 2021 to commemorate this iconic vehicle. We anticipate that cars from around the world will be joining us at Blenheim Palace and hope to break all previous records for the number of E-Types gathered in one place.

We will also be celebrating other notable anniversaries, too. The Mark 10 was launched in 1961, the X-Type arrived in 2001 and Jaguar recorded its first win at Le Mans in 1951. Our weekend package includes Friday and Saturday night at Heythrop Park Hotel with a buffet dinner on Friday and a gala dinner in a marquee on Saturday. There is also an option for anyone who wishes to stay over on Sunday evening.

This event is not only for club members but for all E-Type owners and Jaguar fans. We have a full weekend of entertainment planned, including guest speakers, seminars and driving experiences at Bicester Heritage on Saturday, a shopping trip to Bicester village and an amazing programme of evening entertainment for Friday and Saturday night to make this a weekend to remember.

Sunday will see the courtyard of Blenheim Palace filled with more than 100 anniversary Jaguars, a parade, extensive TV coverage, plus trade displays and a shopping village – all within the stunning surroundings of one of the UK’s grandest stately homes.
