Start the day cheering the vintage Land Rovers during the cavalcade into Mell Square. Follow that with a delicious breakfast from the High Street to enjoy whilst heading down to Tudor Grange Park, where you can take part in a range of activities. Ride around the Land Rover Experience course; relax in front of the cinema screen with a drink; let the little ones have a go on the mini rovers, or have a go at rugby with the Wasps academy team; browse the Land Rover Enthusiasts vehicles and get yourself a glitter tattoo!

Back in Mell Square from Midday you will not want to miss the presentations and big cake moment to celebrate Land Rover's 70th Anniversary.
