The days are motoring by to Beaulieu’s popular Spring Autojumble next month on the 17th and 18th May, so make sure you purchase your tickets before the 16th May to get Fast Track Entry to this fantastic event.
Over 1,000 Autojumble spaces will be taking over the picturesque Beaulieu parkland with traders selling all manner of motoring-related items, from parts and accessories to automobilia and literature.
On the Beaulieu Arena, up to 200 vehicles will be on sale in the Motormart, ranging from concours classics to restorable relics and in the Dealermart, a selection of quality classic cars will be on sale.
Beaulieu is offering free entry to vehicle owners who sign up to take part in a special display of cars which have won the European Car of the Year award – 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of this prestigious title. To see if your vehicle is a European Car of the Year award winner, check out the full list at www.springautojumble.co.uk. To join the display and receive free entry to the event, please complete an entry form and email it, along with a photo of your car, to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be informed if your entry has been successful.
Stop by the Practical Classics stand to see the show sponsor’s practical demonstration – the restoration, in one weekend, of the world’s first production Hillman Imp – along with a collection of magazine cars and previous restorations, including Lord Montagu’s MGB GT, restored to working order by the team during last year’s Spring and International Autojumbles.
The Morris Minor Owners’ Club display in the Grand Marquee is also a must-see, with a selection of their members’ stunning cars displayed in a workshop scene.
On Sunday, Old Sodbury’s Land Rover Sortout will be open for business, with traders selling Land Rover and 4×4 parts and accessories. Priority parking for the Sortout is available for £5 if purchased with a Spring Autojumble ticket – spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. If you want to have a Sortout stand yourself, take advantage of the half price stand offer, ending on 18th April.
Trunk Traders will also be a hive of activity on Sunday, with amateur autojumblers selling their surplus motoring bits from their car boots. Arrive early, as trading is brisk!
On Sunday afternoon, Practical Classics Editor, Danny Hopkins, will be entertaining visitors as guest auctioneer at the Walkabout Auction. For just £1, exhibitors can buy a box to fill with bits (larger items can go alongside), to be auctioned off. It’s a simple and easy way of buying or selling those last bits from the show and there are no auction fees to pay.
A free delivery service to the Beaulieu visitor car parks is available for items bought at the autojumble. Bureau de Change and cash facilities are available on-site.
The on-the-day, inclusive admission price is £9.70 for adults and £7.50 for children, even less if booked in advance on the ticket hotline 01590 612888 or online at www.beaulieushop.co.uk. Two day tickets are also available.
