The British Motor Show is set to be one of the UK’s largest events held with no COVID-19 restrictions following the anticipated lifting of lockdowns in July.
The event, taking place from 19-22 August at the Farnborough International Expo Centre, will be packed with interactive car-themed experiences, from the latest electric models to some tantalising classics, with a level of live, interactive experiences never before seen at a previous British Motor Show.
More than 20 of the top car brands on sale in the UK will be represented at the show, among them the latest EVs and hybrids. But it’s not only new cars that will be a feature, with over 50 supercars there on each day and a classic car area featuring over 25 owners clubs.
“With Britain fired up for a return to normality, families, petrolheads and business leaders can’t wait for the opportunity to go out and enjoy themselves,” said British Motor Show CEO Andy Entwistle. “People have been desperate for a great day out for over a year and we are absolutely committed to giving them one, with a motor show that reinvents the car show concept and will also give automotive companies an unmissable chance to reengage with the public after the toughest of times.
“The message from us is clear and simple – the show will go on, and it will be the best and most fun-packed car show of the year, offering a great value day out for car fans of all ages.”
The British Motor Show was scheduled to take place last year. Building on the success of the London Motor Show, the new event moved location to make it more accessible to a wider audience. However, the COVID-19 pandemic meant the event was postponed. Luckily, however, the August date falls after the potential lifing of lockdown measures, and in a time when a majority of the UK population will be fully vaccinated against the virus. The Show has also announced a major partnership with cinch, The UK’s fastest-growing online used car marketplace, which will run for the next five years
As well as a tantalising display of new cars, when the show opens its doors in August it will feature the Select Electric Motor Show, an action packed Live Arena, a Live Stage, motoring celebrities, a robot making competition, Retro-Electric Live, a Supercar Paddock, classic cars, the IMI Technology Theatre, test drives, a kidz zone and a dedicated marketplace area full of petrolhead gift ideas.
On Thursday 19th August, it will also play host to the National Automotive Industry Day, which is tailored towards industry leaders getting to grips with a post-COVID future and helping develop careers in one of the UK’s most dynamic and valuable business sectors.
The Show will also feature the Automotive Careers Expo, which will run throughout the event and support the automotive sector and its employees as the COVID-19 Pandemic comes to an end.
“With thousands of tickets sold already and the amazing support we have seen from the car industry, our exhibitors, the public, the venue and our partners, we are committed to making the British Motor Show 2021 the best automotive event of the year not just in 2021, but in many years to come,” finished Entwistle.
