Luton.Events

A celebration of Vauxhall history, with a selection of cars from the Vauxhall Heritage Centre.


This exhibition showcases a curated selection of vehicles from the Vauxhall Heritage Centre, and is a unique opportunity to get close to some of the iconic vehicles produced by Vauxhall over the last 100 years. Follow the story of the major car company in Luton, and learn something of the impact made on the town.


Vauxhall was established in 1857 and moved to Luton in 1905. The company’s Griffin logo was chosen by the Scottish engineer Alexander Wilson, who took the Falkes de Breauté’s heraldic griffin as the company badge. Falkes had land and a house at what would become Vauxhall, giving the company another connection to Luton as Falkes de Breauté also owned the Manor of Luton.


Come along to the exhibition and discover more about the history of this iconic car manufacturer.

Please note – you will not be provided with a physical ticket for this event.

Stockwood Discovery Centre

Stockwood Discovery Centre tells the stories of real people behind the collections, exploring the history of the region from prehistoric times to the evolution of Stockwood House and the Farley estate.

The display collections include:

  • Geology
  • Archaeology
  • Social history
  • Rural crafts

Highlights include:

  • The Wenlok Jug - a rare medieval masterpiece with strong links to Luton’s history 
  • Luton's last tram
  • The award winning display of Mossman collection of carriages - the largest collection of its kind on display in the UK.

A paradise for garden enthusiasts, Stockwood Discovery Centre is one of the few places in the country where the work of acclaimed artist Ian Hamilton Finlay can be seen on permanent display. His Improvement Garden is a classical garden in which the sculptures are an integral part of the landscape. Once part of the original Stockwood House walled areas, the Period Gardens reflect the changing styles of gardening in this country. New areas include a contemplative Sensory Garden, a colourful World Garden and a Medicinal Garden highlighting the usefulness of plants - designed with environmentally green and sustainable principles in mind.
