The National Motor Museum has been hosting events since 1952, but some won't be going ahead this year.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Hot Rod & Custom Show, the Beaulieu Supercar Weekend and the International Autojumble have been cancelled.

Beaulieu Motor Museum had to close its doors to visitors in March, which meant much of it's 2020 programme, including the Spring Autojumble had to be cancelled. 

Now, they have said that it's become apparent over the last few weeks that, because of social distancing and the international travel quarantine, some of the larger events would not be possible. 

Exhibitors, participants and ticket holders are being notified and given the option to roll their bookings into 2021 or obtain a refund.

Russell Bowman, Managing Director of Beaulieu Enterprises Ltd said:

"We know how popular these three events are and their importance to both car enthusiasts and the local economy, so we are sorry to have to make this difficult decision. We would like to thank everyone, including the event sponsors, for their support and patience over the last few months and look forward to welcoming them back when these events return in 2021."

ALTERNATIVE EVENT

With the 'International Autojumble' being a very popular event for the museum, they are hoping to host a simpler version of it. 

If there is demand, and whether government guidelines allow, there will be an alternative event to allow motoring enthusiasts to trade. 

Any details will be updated via their website or social media channels

Beaulieu has now reopened its grounds and gardens and is hopeful of reopening the National Motor Museum, Palace House and other indoor areas of the attraction in early July.
