Classic Team Lotus Garden Party 2024

We are delighted to be announcing the 2024 Classic Team Lotus Garden Party. This splendid Celebration of Hazel & Colin Chapman Heritage will take place over the weekend of 15 & 16 June.

Classic Team Lotus Garden Party 2024

East Carleton Manor represents Hazel and Colin Chapman Heritage in so many special ways, which the Chapman family wants to share with Lotus enthusiasts.

The inaugural Garden Party event in 2023 was a resounding success and a film of the highlights is available on the CTL Garden Party website at

Classic Team Lotus is developing the content to create another special occasion and, as such, one example of each of the first 12 Lotus car designs will be gathered together for the first time ever at the Garden Party in June.

This historic variety of innovative car designs took Colin and Hazel Chapman on their extraordinary journey from the humble lock-up in North London to the glamour of the Monaco Grand Prix – and beyond - in just 10 years.

In another first, the unprecedented presentation of the early years of Lotus will be accompanied by the recent discovery of Stan Chapman’s personal film archive which provides never seen footage of the very earliest days, from the Mk II onwards. Garden Party guests will enjoy the first public viewing of this ‘buried treasure’.

The Chapman Family is looking forward to welcoming Garden Party guests to East Carleton Manor again, for this second celebration of Hazel & Colin Heritage. Many other Lotus racing and road cars will be exhibited throughout the grounds and gardens. The marquee on the Horseshoe Lawn will provide guests with seated hospitality and act as the focus for an entertaining programme of presentations, including appearances by invited guests. A variety of displays and activities throughout the beautiful venue will add to the occasion. Guests in their Lotus cars will benefit from preferred parking and a photo opportunity in the forecourt.

The Garden Party 2024 on June 15-16 will be another splendid event at East Carleton Manor (the content will be the same on each of the two days).

Tickets are available at www.
