    Beaulieu SwedeSportUK Event 16th September 2017

    Come and join us in your Volvo's and Saabs for the annual Beaulieu event.

    There is a free to enter show and shine with certificates given out of winners in each category, plus additional judges categories.

    Beaulieu is an awesome museum, with the "world of top gear" displaying many of the strange vehicles created by the boys on the TV series including such as the "Snowbine Harvester" and "Toybota"

    The museum itself is full of tv, classic and land speed record cars.

    The fun to ride monorail and large children's play area, with electric cars to drive.

    The house and gardens are top notch too.

    Ticket prices will be available shortly and I'll add a link to page for booking tickets, due to last years turnout I may cap numbers to 250.

    No worries Martin, capping at 250 people this year but will post link up asap

    We'd be using the grass either side of the old mill with 250 people so will have to plan layout.

    Me too! Numbers are limited to 250, so we don't get over crowed.

    People asked for details for SwedeSportUK Beaulieu event, here a link to the page and specifically the event.

    We had 140 tickets sold last year and it was a great day, plenty of things to see and do at Beaulieu "world of top gear" with all the mad inventions / cars, ride the mono rail around the grounds, the gardens, the house and of course the motor museum.

    There is a free to enter show and shine.

    Tickets are limited to 250 and I know approx 50 tickets have already gone, a couple of main dealers usually join in and there is a fantastic range of Volvo's and Saabs from new to old.
