John Montagu Building
This year’s popular Spring Autojumble takes place on the 19th & 20th May in the grounds of the world-famous Beaulieu 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, particularly on Sunday. Traditionally the quieter day of this two day show, an enhanced Sunday programme is seeing an increase in Sunday visitors.”
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 – this must be a record!
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.
New for 2012 – Walkabout Auction. 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 by a guest auctioneer from Bonhams. It’s a simple and easy way of buying or selling those last bits from the show and there are no auction fees to pay.
Hampshire based company, Easy Logistics, are this year sponsoring the delivery service and will also be providing a SHIP FROM SHOW service, offering a global delivery service from the event.
