About The British Motor Show

The British Motor Show returns in 2020 with a unique new format that celebrates motoring – past, present and future.

This show is like no other motor show ever seen.

The British Motor Show will be a truly dynamic event, featuring live arena shows and outdoor attractions including ride and drive events, a wall of death, under 17 driving experiences and more. Enjoy celebrity packed interactive sessions on two live stages, one of which will be dedicated to automotive technology,

The event includes halls dedicated to Classic Cars and Owners Clubs, Supercars, New Cars, Electric Cars and technology and a dedicated "Mini Motor Show" kids zone, plus an exciting motoring marketplace. 

The show will take place at Farnborough International, an exciting new exhibition centre built to host the annual air show. We will be utilising the infrastructure built for the airshow  giving us 40,000sqm of indoor space, 4 acres of outdoor space and routes for test drives. 

The British Motor Show will have 5 distinct areas:

The New Car & Manufacturer Halls - filled with suppliers and manufacturers showing the latest models available, with an interactive approach and focusing on cars that can be bought now rather than concepts. This area will also feature the Live Stage and “The Mini Motor Show” our dedicated kids zone. 

The Automotive & Technology "Future Hall" - This will feature a dedicated EV zone, a Technology Theatre, hybrids, technology suppliers, EV infrastructure suppliers and Hydrogen. The Technology hall will be the place where visitors can talk to the experts about all things tech, including sessions on Autonomous driving, EV myth busting and what are the safest cars to buy. 

The Live Content - This will comprise of the Live Arena, which is being choreographed and managed by Paul Swift. This will feature live stunt shows, supercar & classic car parades. Manufacturer product demonstrations, displays, and a variety of tech demonstrations, along with a fair few celebrities. We will have a tech theatre where manufacturers and suppliers will be able to demonstrate products and the latest technology and deliver talks on some of the key subjects around the latest in vehicle technology. We will also host a number of external features including drift passenger rides, an under 17 driving experience, The Wall of Death, Go-Karting and more.

Two unique test drive opportunities. the first being our “Alternative Drive Experience” - Dedicated purely to EV, Hybrid and Hydrogen, we want to get people into the cars to experience what they are like. Participation is free to any manufacturer exhibiting at the show. We will also offer a test drive experience for “regular” vehicles. Both can take advantage of the 2KM of internal roads, or head out onto the roads around the site.

The Classic & Supercar Halls, incorporating a supercar paddock, CAR SOS live, an automotive marketplace and our automotive arts and craft areas.
