All Ford owners are invited to drive into Beaulieu on Sunday 6th May and park up within the museum complex for what promises to be a superb day out for both Ford owners and enthusiasts.
From custom Fiestas, restored Mk1 Escorts and even the odd Transit, Beaulieu's Simply Ford show is one of the UK's premier Ford events and is set to provide a great opportunity to admire a stunning range of vehicles and to connect with fellow enthusiasts.
All participants have the opportunity to be chosen as the winner of the People’s Choice Award, selected by public vote. The winner will receive the Beaulieu Simply Ford trophy.

Celebrating 50 years of the Ford Escort
Five decades after the first Ford Escort rolled off the production line, owners are invited to drive their cherished examples across the New Forest to park up on the Beaulieu Events Arena at the heart of the rally.
From affordable runabouts, to race and rally-winning giants, the Escort has been many things to many people during its six generation lifespan and is still a real crowd-pleaser today.
Escort club bookings are also welcome, please contact the Events team at least two weeks prior to the event to reserve your space. See club section below for more details.

Been today for 1st time with our black sierra xr 4x4. Was a brilliant day, thought there was a great turn out ... the museum & top gear exhibit is brilliant.
The Simply Ford car show was amazing and we loved looking over some older cars and reminiscing. The palace gardens and grounds are stunning and the bonus of the secret army exhibition was a welcome surprise.
We have attended every year since this event started and it has been fantastic. Thank you all very much for super organisation this year.
