NSRA Pre-’49 Event

1st-4th May 2020 – Derbyshire Peak District


In keeping with tradition, the NSRA Pre-49 Event is limited to pre-49 body style
Hot Rods, Street Rods & Customs only.

The 2020 NSRA Pre-49 event will be based around the Derbyshire Peak District.

Accommodation will be at the Darwin Forest Holiday Park with luxury self catering lodges or nearby Premier Inn.

There is a website for the park if you would like to view it: www.darwinforest.co.uk

The Holiday Park is just outside of Matlock in the Peak District and should be a perfect area for some great cruises out. We are looking at cruises around the local dams, possible mines and caverns and a tram museum.

As the Holiday Park lodges are currently available to book and they cannot reserve any for our event, I have been advised we need to book very very soon if we wish to participate.

If you have any questions regarding the event, area or accommodation or Premier Inn option please email or call me.. email hidden; JavaScript is required or 01636 605316

PLEASE NOTE, to participate in this event you must be a current NSRA Member at the time of the event (1st to 4th of May 2020) and have a Pre 1949 or pre 1949 body style car.

Please could you let me know if you book the Holiday Park or Premier Inn, so I can include you event updates.
