Organisers of this summer’s London Concours have confirmed that it will take place, making it the first major automotive event in the UK since February.
Rescheduled from June due to the coronavirus pandemic, it will take over the Honourable Artillery Company HQ in the heart of the British capital on 19-20 August.
The event’s footprint has also been increased by more than a third to 20,000 square metres which, alongside a raft of newly introduced measures will, the organisers say, mean visitors can enjoy the exhibits in a safe and secure outdoor environment.
Ticket allocation will be more restricted than normal, with separate morning and afternoon tickets, and there will be a limit on the number of people given access at any one time.
In addition, parking close to the venue has been secured at a reduced rate, for those who do not wish to use public transport.
“We’re enormously excited by this breakthrough,” said Andrew Evans, London Concours Director.
“The event has received so much support from partnering brands and we look forward to welcoming many more in addition to our visiting guests. We can, and we will, create an extraordinary event comparable to previous years thanks to our robust event plan.”
You can buy tickets to the London Concours 2020 here. Should the event be cancelled, buyers will receive a full refund or their ticket can be deferred to 2021.
