36th ALL BRITISH DAY - Sunday February 9th 2020


What will you experience at all British Day in 2020?

2020... will be a celebration of two proud British companies.

Armstrong Siddley commenced manufacturing in 1919 and has a rich history in both the aviation industry and motor car production. Over the years Armstrong Siddeley merged with other companies that also produced aero engines and motor cars. We look forward to hosting the Armstrong Siddeley Car Club as a feature club in 2020. 

W.O. Bentley formed his first company in 1912. He was an engineer who designed engines for aircraft, motorcycles and of course cars. Bentley manufactured rotary areo engines throughout WW1. The first Bentley car was delivered in 1921. The prestigious car brand that bears his name lives on today, and will be celebrated as a feature 100 years of Bentley at All British Day 2020.

A Brief here!



2021... All British Day will feature 'British Working Wheels'

British vehicles have been used in Australia almost since the birth of the British motor industry. They have helped open up this vast country, and been depended on to help build some of Australia's biggest projects, like the Snowy Hydro Scheme. From the humble push bikes used to deliver the post, to police motorcycles, trucks, tractors, vans, utilities, company cars, and military vehicles. There are many British marques that can lay claim to being to being 'British Working Wheels!'

We look forward to hosting this theme in 2021.

 All British Day is more than celebrating British vehicles. We are also a community focused organisation. As the primary school is our next door neighbour educating future members of the local community, we felt it was appropriate that we should offer to lend our support to the school. The school has indicated that it would appreciate assistance expanding its self-sufficiency project.

Echunga Primary School and Preschool is a small, semi-rural school in the beautiful Adelaide Hills with a stunning setting and a community environment which nurtures learning and positive attitudes. We are very lucky to have a supportive community of parents and families. We are very proud of what we have, and what we are developing here at Echunga Primary School and know that, by working together, we can help our young people to be successful and powerful learners with the dispositions to embrace whatever life holds for them in the future.
