The Club stages two spectacular world-class Concours events each year which attract entries from the global Membership, showcasing some of the finest and rarest cars from every model era of Aston Martin production.
This autumn, our Concours was held on the stunning north Norfolk coast at the magnificent Holkham Hall, Wells next the Sea. Holkham Hall is rich in history, architecture and wildlife. This elegant 18th century mansion is not only a venue but also home to the Earl of Leicester and his family.
The weekend of events started on Friday 27th September in the shop at Holkham Hall; with a glass of bubbles Members were treated to a talk from 'field to folk' some and evening shopping. Moving to the adjacent Café the famous Suffolk Brewery, Adnams delighted Members with Ale and Gin Tasting and an education in Holkham home-grown grain and its journey to your glass. This evening ended in a the intimate Wells Crab House where the service and food was very well received.
On Saturday 28th September Members proudly gathered to participate in the Burnham Market and Royal NW Norfolk Tour. The tour followed the coastal road to the Sandringham Estate, passing through gorgeous coastal villages to the Royal Station at Wolferton, this now privately owned also dons its own museum. Returning to Burnham Market via Anmer Hall, home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the procession then assembled at the Hoste Inn for a buffet lunch.
Our Saturday evening AMOC dinner was be held in the Lady Elizabeth Wing of Holkham Hall and guests were greeted with a complimentary glass of Taittinger Champagne. The following 3-course dinner with was accompanied by live music; and it is fair to say AMOC Members can dance well.
Sunday 29th was Concours day itself there was an impressive display entries of entries in spite of the forcasted weather. Judging commenced at 10:00 and the sun shone in true Aston Martin spirit, and tours of Holkham Hall ensued. The complimentary glasses of Taittinger Champagne were poured a plenty and lunch in the Lady Elizabeth Wing pleased all.
The much coveted trophies were awarded in the prize giving that afternoon.

Last year's autumn Concours weekend event was held high on a hill in the heart of Lancashire at Hoghton Tower.
Friday evening set the tone with a wonderful 'welcome to Lancashire' barbecue at the delightful Astley Bank Hotel. Saturday afternoon saw some of the most spectacular views with some guests driving through the Forest of Bowland.
Our gala dinner took place in the banqueting hall at Hoghton Tower, complete with a 'Host the Roast' ceremony and open fires.
The weather looked favourably on us for the Concours on Sunday with glorious sunshine and the usual array of stunning Aston Martins of all eras. The tilting green provided the perfect place for the cars against the backdrop of the magnificent tower.
