By March 16, 2022Headline News

In 2004 1933 (34 season) Morris Minor Saloon (JO 7738) played a leading role in the film drama ‘Ladies in Lavender’, starring Dames’ Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. The car was subsequently sold and in the process lost its registration, before a PWMN member bought the car and then purchased an appropriate replacement plate (OU 3191). In September 2021 a repertory company based at the Apollo Theatre , Newport, IOW dramatised the film story, putting on a production that ran for a week. To advertise the event the current owner of OU 3191, an IOW resident, acquired a duplicate set of number plates for this re-enactment photoshoot held outside the theatre entrance.
