The Beaulieu Autojumble 2020 event, alongside two other Beaulieu events, has been cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation.
The New Forest venue said that social distancing requirements and the quarantine on international travel meant it had become increasingly apparent that holding some of its larger events would not be possible. As well as the International Autojumble, the Beaulieu Supercar Weekend scheduled for August 8-9 has also been cancelled. Exhibitors, participants and ticket holders are being given the option to roll their bookings into 2021 or obtain a refund.
It’s not all bad news though. Beaulieu has confirmed that its popular ‘Simply’ events will take place for the remainder of the year. It has reviewed arrangements for these smaller events to ensure they can take place safely for participants, visitors and staff. As a result, all participants will need to pre-book their tickets, and there will be a limit on the number of cars that can take part. And while the International Autojumble cannot take place in its current format, Beaulieu is hoping it may be able to host a simpler version of the event if there is demand. It will communicate any decision via its website, and social media channels.
Beaulieu opened its grounds and gardens to visitors in early June and hopes to reopen the National Motor Museum and other indoor areas very shortly. For further information, see www.beaulieu.co.uk.
