Jumblers gear up for Beaulieu

THE hugely popular Beaulieu Spring Autojumble takes place on the May 19-20 in the grounds of the world-famous New Forest attraction.

Events manager Judith Maddox said: “This show, now in its 19th year, is going from strength to strength with increasing numbers of stands and strong visitor numbers.”

The 1,000 Autojumble spaces will be selling everything motor-related, including parts, automobilia, literature and accessories while the MotorMart, on the Beaulieu Arena, will have up to 200 vehicles for sale, ranging from concours classics to restorable relics and the DealerMart, a selection of classic cars for sale.

The MotorMarque feature celebrates a significant anniversary in the history of a model that went on to become a legend, or started an iconic design trend. This year it will celebrate 50 years of the Austin 750 Club. The club held its inaugural rally at Beaulieu in 1962 and has been coming every year since.

Sunday highlights include Old Sodbury’s Land Rover Sortout, selling Land Rover parts and accessories, and Trunk Traders, with amateur autojumblers selling their surplus car bits from the back of their vehicles.

For an end-of-show chance to buy and sell, a new feature for Spring Autojumble Sunday offers exhibitors an opportunity to sell off surplus items of stock they don’t want to take home with them. For just £1, exhibitors can buy a box to fill with bits (larger items can go alongside), to be auctioned at the end of the afternoon. It’s a simple way of buying or selling those last bits and there are no auction fees to pay.

Visitors will be able to enjoy all the Beaulieu attractions, including the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear and the latest exhibition, Bond in Motion, The exhibition, the largest of its kind staged anywhere in the world, showcases 50 of the best loved and most iconic James Bond vehicles.

There is an on-the-day, inclusive price of £9.50 for adults and £7.20 for children, less if booked in advance on the ticket hotline: 01590 612888, or online at www.beaulieushop.co.uk

There is still time to book Autojumble stand spaces. Contact the events department on 01590 614614 or email: events@beaulieu.co.uk
