Adding another 2 event to the highly successful ‘Simply’ days including Simply Mercedes and Simply Aston days, the Beaulieu team continue to look after all interests..

Get up-close to the latest Emergency services vehicles at Blue Light Day on Sunday 26th April and see fully kitted-out fire engines and ambulances, the purposeful motors of the police, Coastguard, Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and other vital services. You will be amazed by the sights and sounds of these machines which are used to save lives.

Clamber inside the impressive machines used by the Fire and Rescue Service and South Central Ambulance Service, then see their vintage counterparts in the impressive display. You may even spot a 1950s Green Goddess fire engine or maybe a 1960s police ‘panda’ car.

Become a big kid for the day and see feature displays, before meeting the incredible crews who drive and ride in the fast response vehicles and learn about their work. The action-packed event takes place on National Drive It Day, as historic vehicles take to the road up and down the country – so why not make Beaulieu your destination!

Also buzzing with excitement will be Simply Electric, sparking into life for the first time on Sunday 24th May at the start of May half-term.

If it runs on battery power, then silently motor your way across the New Forest to join in.
