Inspired Villages has partnered with Heritage and Culture Warwickshire (HCW) to become the headline sponsor for an upcoming exhibition about the Donald Healey Motor Company.
Inspired Villages’s Austin Heath later living community in Heathcote, Warwickshire, was inspired by the area’s connection to Healey Cars, the creators of the famous Austin-Healey marque.
The exhibition will be located on the ground floor of the Market Hall Museum in Warwick and run from May to September this year. It will tell the story of Donald Healey and his cars, through archives, photographs, artefacts, and of course, one or two Healey cars.
There will be an exciting programme of community engagement activities and events that will complement the exhibition, allowing all ages to learn about the Healey story in a fun and interactive way.
James Cobb, Director at Inspired Villages, commented:
“We’re proud of the region’s rich history, so much so that Austin Heath’s name is born directly from its diverse landscape and industrious heritage.
“You don’t have to search far for the warm affection locals still feel for what was, in motoring terms, an industrial revelation.
“We’re so pleased to be supporting this exhibition and seeing all ages enjoy learning about the history of the Donald Healey Motor Company.”
Warwickshire County Councillor and portfolio holder for environment, heritage and culture, Heather Timms said:
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with Austin Heath on this project. What better fit than a company inspired by a famous local name supporting an exhibition celebrating their legacy.”
