Heritage & Culture Warwickshire are delighted to announce its exciting summer exhibition “Healey: Cars for Speed & Glamour” that will run from Friday 1st May to Saturday 30th September 2020 at the Market Hall Museum, Warwick. 

This is the first time the Museum​ has devoted the entire ground floor to one exhibition. It will focus on Donald Mitchell Healey CBE, entrepreneur, inventor and racing driver and the Donald Healey Motor Company he founded. It will tell the story of the rise of a remarkable company that started in the Cape area of Warwick and achieved international fame, designing some of the most famous and desirable sports cars in motoring history. The exhibition will feature artefacts, archives and photographs, owned by Donald Healey or his company. It will demonstrate the extraordinary spirit of Donald, his sons, Geoffrey and Brian, and the talented team that worked with them. Highlighting the works, the cars, the motor sport exploits and some of the less publicised projects! In addition to the exhibition, there will be a programme of community engagement activities that will allow people of all ages to learn about the Healey story.
