After a long 12 years without The British Motor Show, it is now returning with new organisers being announced. It won’t be coming to its last home of the Excel in London, but instead to Farnborough International in Hampshire only a month after the popular Farnborough Air Show.
Opening its doors on August 20, 2020, the show will consist of five halls with all sorts of cars on display. No matter your poison, whether it be classic, aftermarket, or modern, this show will have it all. And if you’re not so into the smell of fuel, then the hall dedicated to modern technology and alternate fuels is waiting for you, with the latest hybrid and electric vehicles on display.
Adults and kids alike will love the dynamic displays the show will have on offer, including stunt driving from Paul Swift from the famed Top Gear Live shows. In the live arena, the latest supercars will be shown to the crowds and a ‘wall of death’ will even be open to the public to watch.
The Motorshow Marketplace will offer the latest tech, detailing and other motoring products, while some of the technology will be being showed off in another hall. There will be interviews, quizzes, and interaction for all age groups, and thankfully, its opening days coincide with the school holidays.
It’s running for four days, August 20th to the 23rd, in which 50,000 visitors are expected to welcome back the prestigious event.
Adults: £13.87 each
Family (two adults two children): £27.76 for all
Child (4-16): £5.00
Infants (3 and under): Free
“I’m incredibly excited to announce that we’re bringing the British Motor Show back, which I could not have done without the great team behind me,” said Andy Entwistle, the CEO of show’s new organisers, Automotion. “This will be like no motor show that has been seen before, and our focus on past, present and future means there will be something for the whole family, as well as every petrol-head. I’m particularly excited about the technology hall where we will be able to get EVs and alternatively fuelled vehicles in front of the masses for the first time.
“At a time when the motor industry has taken a few knocks I’m proud to be able to support the manufacturers and suppliers and give them a platform to really shout about their products and innovations. We are making the show accessible to everyone, including exhibitors. This is a new breed of motor show with an historic name, that will deliver something completely new, unique and utterly unmissable.”
