*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Morges
Event Type: Family
Location: British Classic Car Show, 1110 Morges
Price: Free entry

The British Classic Car show is back at Morges on Saturday October 6th and I'll be there again with my British cheese stall and some extras for this year including:

Mini Ploughmans Lunch - cheese, simple salad, pickled onions, chutney and bread.

Pimm's... the best in Switzerland! (IMO of course)

British Ale (and hopefully cider) as well as proper Ginger Beer.

Scones and Clotted Cream - to eat there and take home

as well as a small selection of my best selling cheeses, crackers, chutneys and fudge. If there is enough demand (let me know here) I'll bring some bagels too but I won't be able to serve them toasted with cheese this year.

There is usually about 1500 cars turn up from all over Europe but the day really is very family friendly, hopefully I will get the same spot as last year right next to the lawn by the lake (it's a really beautiful location) so bring some picnic blankets and chairs and we'll show the locals how to really enjoy an English picnic.

Thanks already to Sky for emailing the Morges police for me in the local lingo to sort out the temporary alcohol license but if anyone else would like to earn a lunch and some drinks, I could do with a few volunteers for an hour or so to help serve drinks and fetch more ice from the local petrol station.

Looking forward to seeing you all down there again!

(and if you can't make this one I will be back in Geneva the following Saturday 13th at the Moevenpick wine shop and on the Sunday 14th at the Expat Expo in central Geneva)
