Weekender for automotive lovers
If you love all things automotive, Beaulieu Motor Museum is the place to be on 8 and 9 September. Its most famous motoring event, the International Autojumble, takes place on these dates and is the biggest outdoor sale of motoring items this side of the Atlantic.
Started in 1967 in a one-day show with 75 stands, it is now in its 45th year and boasts over 2,000 stands.
Stands feature everything from vintage and classic motoring parts, accessories, automobilia and literature to tools and clothing. And in the Automart, there will be up to 200 cars on offer, from restoration projects to cars in concours condition while the DealerMart will have a selection of classic cars for sale.
On Saturday, Bonhams will be holding an auction of collectors' motor cars, motorcycles and automobilia and including a 1972 Ferrari Dino Spyder, a 1922 Wolseley H.7, one of only ten known survivors, a horse-drawn phaeton and the only known example of a 1948 DOT AA Truck.
On Sunday, the popular Trunk Traders will offer amateur autojumblers the opportunity to sell their surplus motoring bits from the back of their cars.
Beaulieu's Events Manager, Judith Maddox said: "The demand for stand space is increasing year on year; there are currently just a few spaces left for this year's show and we anticipate it will be another sell-out."
If this sounds up your street, one-day tickets cost £14.30 for adults on Saturday, £12.70 for Sunday, and £8.70 and £8.40 for children respectively.
