Mike Hawthorn Memorial Lunches 2016

Mike Hawthorn Memorial Lunches for this Spring are planned for Sunday 10th April, which is to celebrate Mike Hawthorn’s birthday, at The Barley Mow, Tilford, Near Farnham.

The Memorial Lunches in the Autumn celebrate the anniversary of Mike Hawthorn winning the World Formula One Championship and will be held on Sunday 16th and Wednesday 19th October 2016.

The Barley Mow was one of Mike Hawthorn’s favoured watering holes, hence the tradition of holding the memorial lunches here. It is in a wonderful position, set in an idyllic English village location, opposite the cricket green.

As is fitting, The Barley Mow boasts an interesting collection of Hawthorn memorabilia, which landlord Charles Barton is gradually building up, and which includes a framed photograph of Mike Hawthorn, rescued by the landlord from someone who was going to throw it away!

Allcomers are welcome, and there is guaranteed to be an interesting selection of cars from all eras!

For more information, please contact Tim Ely who has been organizing this popular event since its inception, more than 10 years ago.
