Following a difficult start to the New Year for everyone, the return of Beaulieu’s popular events helps to share 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.

Beaulieu Managing Director Russell Bowman said: “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.”
