Business partnerships with the National Motor Museum Trust can take many forms and provide significant benefits to both parties. There are opportunities to support motoring heritage, exhibition programmes, education and community outreach projects. Our outlook on partnership is flexible and responsive, so that we can tailor arrangements to suit individual circumstance. Benefits range from free entry tickets to the Museum to use of Beaulieu facilities for a whole range of corporate events.

Formhalls generously carried out similar work to the Museum’s 1920 Sunbeam 350hp Land Speed Record vehicle back in 2008.
