Following a difficult start to the New Year for everyone, the return of Beaulieu’s popular events helps to share the hope of better times ahead once the current restrictions have eased. With 27 Covid-secure events currently planned for the new show season, there will be plenty for all the family to do at Beaulieu, together.

The BBC Gardeners’ World Fair Spring, May 28th-30th, and the Artisan CollectiveFestive Fair, December 10th-12th, will be joined by Simply Electric on May 23rd, as new additions to the Beaulieu events line-up for 2021.

High-octane two-day show Supercar Weekend will return on August 7th and 8th, while the greatly anticipated International Autojumble is set to follow on September 4th and 5th.

As we all look towards the springtime with hopes that the virus will have lessened its grip on the world, we are planning to hold our much-loved motoring events once again, adding new shows to what promises to be an exciting calendar. Our 2020 Simply rallies were a socially-distanced success and I would like to thank everybody who attended. Visitors are in for a treat with a record line-up of 15 Simply rallies for the new season.
