While the high octane thrills will continue with the Beaulieu Supercar Weekend on 6th - 7th August, with exciting demonstrations of jaw-dropping supercars that all the family will love.
A big hit with gardeners when it was launched in 2021, BBC Gardener’s World Spring Fair will be transforming the Beaulieu event fields into a green-fingered paradise as it returns from 29th April to 1st May. The show will be packed with even more to treat gardeners, including flower displays and plants to buy, inspirational Beautiful Borders and gardening supplies for sale, to the BBC Good Food Market, street food, musical entertainment and more.
