The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power takes place at Cholmondeley Castle nr. Malpas, Cheshire, UK on 18th and 19th July 2009.

The theme this year is BUGATTI (The Cholmondeley's owned seven Bugattis and would have bought an Atlantic if Jean had allowed them. They were close friends of Ettore.

Before we go any further can we put the record straight.

1) CHOLMONDELEY WITH TWO "E"s is correct Kees. Also, Hugh Conway and Charles Renaud if you've got the internet in heaven, please take note.
2) The pictures of the Cholmondeley type 57s are NOT taken at Cholmondeley Castle as many people think but at Houghton Hall (NOT Haughton Hall as HGC would have us believe).
3) Lady Cholmondeley (aka Sybil Sassoon, Lady Rocksavage and the Marchioness of Cholmondeley) was NOT a tall women who needed an unusually high Figoni et Falaschi saloon body on chassis 57739. She was in fact petite in the manner of Kay Petre. Her husband was the tall one.
