The final preparations are being made at Farnborough International for the return of The British Motor Show, which will open tomorrow with a display from the British Army Lightning Bolts parachute team.

The event runs from August 19–22 at the Hampshire exhibition centre, located within a two-hour drive for 50% of the UK population, with thousands of car fans and families expected through the doors over the four days.

And with all of the show’s launches, activities and live content now confirmed it’s time to look forward to an event like no other.

The show will be officially opened at 10am on Thursday by The British Army Lightning Bolts parachute team, who will then return on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, dropping into the live arena from 20,000ft at noon each day.

At the heart of the show will be the Live Stage, hosted by CAR SOS Duo Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend, who will be interviewing a variety of celebrities and automotive influencers, including TV star Vicki Butler-Henderson, YouTube legend Yianni Charalambous and BTCC leading driver Ash Sutton.

Meanwhile, TV motoring pundit Mike Brewer will be hosting the Live Arena. Over four days, the arena will see a mixture of thrills and spills, as well as parades and comparisons of some of the star cars at the show.

Twice daily, Paul Swift’s stunt team will wow the crowds with a stunt extravaganza, featuring sideways and two-wheel driving, while another key highlights will be the supercar parades, in which an amazing selection of the world’s most exotic cars will rumble into the arena and make some noise.

Other Arena features are the classic car parade and a twice daily show of some of the most important motorsport exhibitors at the show, along with Mike Brewer’s own group tests of some of the most important new cars at the show, from EVs to SUVs.

Each day, the event will close with a round of car football — The British Motor Show’s very own celebrity rendition of the Euro 2020 football championship final, with Fiats and MINIS representing England and Italy. And this time, England hopefully won’t lose on penalties….

Other highlights include the new Select Electric Motor Show packed full of the latest EVs (backed by Select Car Leasing), three major automotive debuts, details of which will be announced on the eve of the show, a supercar paddock featuring more than 50 supercars a day, an official presence from the UK’s best-selling brand, Ford, as well as a number of other key manufacturers.

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.

No other Motor Show has ever delivered such a variety of content, celebrity guests and live action, nor has it had such a focus on supporting our incredible automotive industry, which contributes £18.6 billion to the British economy at a time when it needs it most. It 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

The British Motor Show CEO, Andy Entwistle, said: “We’re really buzzing now as the show begins its final countdown. Nowhere else can car fans and their families get such an amazing day out in the 2021 summer holidays, and all for just £18.50 per head, or £37 for a family ticket.”
