London to Brighton Veteran Car Run 2019

Where can I start? Firstly the excitement and anticipation of the event was made that much better when in October 2018 my wife and I were entering a state of excitement following the  Annual dinner about the forthcoming event in London the following month, only to be slightly concerned by the days and the dates…

A new year, a new decade, a new Social Programme!

Traditionally, due to a few details requiring confirmation with some suppliers, this makes it difficult to get our Social Programme posted to you in time as a stocking filler for Christmas – no matter how hard we try! But what we can do is share with you, the events we have planned and the dates,…

Rolls Royce & Solent Sky Museum

A highly recommended visit if you haven’t been, was the recent visit to Solent Sky Museum where 17 members were able to have the Museum to themselves and found out all about the incredible story of aviation in Hampshire and the Solent region. It is also the home of the Hampshire Police and Fire Heritage…

Tour of The Tank Museum

The Beaulieu One Hundred visit to the Bovington Tank Museum on Thursday 21 April may not have had broad appeal but the enthusiasm among the seven members and guests that attended combined with that of our guide, the Museum’s CEO Richard Smith, more than made up for it. Richard is a historian whose university dissertation…

Austin Healey 100M (BN2) 1955 – TAC 620

The striking Austin Healey 100M, ‘TAC 620’ will always stand out in a crowd and certainly did so at Beaulieu’s Simply Classics event in 2015 where she won the Peoples Choice ‘Car of the Day’ Award. Built on 12th October 1955 specifically for the motor show launch of the 100m variant, TAC 620 was the…

Murray on Monaco

Murray Walker’s talk ‘Murray on Monaco’ was a complete sell out, with 200 people packed into the National Motor Museum Trust’s Theatre. Beaulieu One Hundred members filled the front row and all were enthralled by Murray’s recall of people and events from the world of Formula 1 and Monaco in particular. He began with a moving tribute to the late…

FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR

The Beaulieu One Hundred fireworks evening was as I have come to expect, well planned, well delivered and an exciting yet relaxed and casual event. The early evening gathering in the stunning Domus building was the perfect start, with its majestic walk-in fireplace, open bar, seasonal fayre and beautiful tapestries I felt quite the lord…
