The annual Sunbeam Rally, organised by the Marston Heritage Trust, took place at Bantock House Museum, on 4th July 2004.

As usual George Peck and Derek Beddows were on hand to make sure that everything ran smoothly.
The first Sunday in July came round again and it was time for the annual Sunbeam Rally at Bantock Park. This is the third time that the event has been held in the excellent surroundings of Bantock House.

As always the sun shone and an enjoyable day was had by all. Bantock House's excellent cafe was on hand to provide everyone with refreshments and Wolverhampton Archives and Local Studies put on a display about the history of Wolverhampton's vehicle manufacturers.

20 Sunbeam motorcycles and several bicycles took part and many participated in a short run around the area. Most of the machines were restored to original showroom condition and were admired by the numerous visitors who came along.
Sadly one of the regulars, Bill Barton was unable to attend because he is recovering from a heart bypass operation. We wish him a speedy recovery.

As usual the event was well organised by Trevor Davies, Derek Beddows and other members of the Marston Heritage Trust, who are managing to keep the Sunbeam name alive and well.
