Further to the Government’s latest lockdown announcement, we sadly must close the doors to the Beaulieu Attraction, including the National Motor Museum, once again.
We apologise that this has again temporarily taken away one of the benefits of your membership. Previously we have offered to extend your Friends membership by the period of time we were closed and many of you kindly made the decision to waive this option, for which we are very grateful. We will be offering extended membership again free of charge for any period in which the Museum remains closed. If you could consider once again waiving this further extension, it would greatly help the National Motor Museum Trust’s charity finances during this increasingly difficult time. There has never been a more important period to continue with your support, as we strive to protect and preserve the collection while the National Motor Museum and the attraction are closed.
Any member wishing to extend their membership will be asked to pay the membership fee at the time of their current renewal, as usual, and the appropriate extension period will then be added on the end. Please inform the Membership Secretary if you wish to take up the offer of extension, otherwise we will assume that you do not wish to extend”.
As we have not been able to hold our usual series of Friends’ Evenings this year, we are looking at how we can hold Friends’ events online, and will keep members informed of developments.
Please see the Beaulieu website for the latest news about postponed Beaulieu events and their rearranged dates, as they are planned.
Thank you very much for your patience whilst we are closed and for your continued support of the National Motor Museum.
The Friends support the work of the National Motor Museum in its task of preserving Britain’s motoring heritage. Support is provided in many ways including membership subscriptions.
