    Organiser Nicholas Mee of CTR Events said, “We are very excited to be presenting this iconic Aston Martin at Stoke Park Club, itself a filming location for scenes in two James Bond movies, Goldfinger (1964) and Tomorrow Never Dies (1997). For the first time ever this magnificent DB5 will be on display with all the other 007 Aston Martins: the DBS from Quantum of Solace, the Vanquish from Die Another Day and the V8 Vantage Volante from The Living Daylights.”

    Supported by Aston Martin Lagonda, the family-friendly Midsummer Classic will have the convivial atmosphere of a garden party where guests will enjoy generous hospitality and have access to the Concours d’Elegance which will also feature some very special Aston Martins and Lagondas.

    A country club and resort with an impressive mansion clubhouse and 350 acres of historic parkland, Stoke Park Club is situated near Stoke Poges in Buckinghamshire.

    Tickets are available for both the daytime Midsummer Classic and the evening ThunderBall events. For more information, visit
