David Brown Memorial Lecture - 30 October 2018

The 2018 David Brown Memorial Lecture

will be given by Stephen Archer.

"The evolving attraction of the Aston Martin marque".


The 2018 David Brown Memorial Lecture will be held at the Principal Hotel, York on Tuesday, 30 October 2018 (note this is a change from the original date). Proceedings will start at 19.00 with dinner followed by the lecture. 

Part of the idea of holding this lecture in York is to enable all Aston Martin enthusiasts to engage with the heritage of the marque without having to travel further south and those who might not be able to attend the Dudley Coram Memorial Lecture or the Walter Hayes Memorial Lecture.   

Stephen Archer, who has raced and owned many Aston Martin models, has studied the history of some and written learned books on many others will be giving the talk for us.

He will examine the appeal of Aston Martin to people at different periods of its history and why they bought one, in a light-hearted trip through the magic of Aston Martin.  We expect this will end up with a forum discussion through which he will lay bare the emotions which drive our purchase of these rather special cars, regardless of era and why we have such a deep affection for them.

The venue for this lecture will be The Oak Room at the very splendid Principal Hotel that is situated right by the main York Railway Station.  There will be a pay bar available from 19.00, followed by a three-course meal with wine at 19.30 with Stephen's talk to follow the meal.

Many attendees will wish to stay on after the lecture.  Hotel rooms are available at a discounted rate of £149.00 single and £159.00 double including breakfast.  To book rooms, please contact the hotel directly (01904 653681) and give the Aston Martin Heritage Trust (AMHT) as a reference to ensure you receive the discount.

We look forward to seeing you there.
