Dorset Blind Association Motor Show returns to Lulworth Castle

Dorset Blind Association’s annual motor show fundraising event, set against the stunning backdrop of Lulworth Castle will take place on Sunday 12 May. The show is a hugely popular community event for all the family with thousands expected to attend.

From classic cars to supercars, modified vehicles to performance cars, there will be over 250 vehicles on display for enthusiasts to admire. The event will feature live music from The Land Girls, The Bournemouth Carnival Band, and The Rock Choir, providing a lively atmosphere for all. Families can enjoy free performances and circus workshops by Jamie Jigsaw, as well as a dedicated kid’s area with bouncy castles, rides, face painting and stalls.

Foodies will delight in the variety of delicious food and drinks to satisfy every palate (including vegan and vegetarian), along with a wide range of artisan stalls selling local produce and gifts.

There will be a chance to win incredible prizes in the raffle, generously donated by local businesses. They include include lunch at Rick Stein restaurant, a barbecue, salon treatments, and much more!

Neal Burton, a car exhibitor, shared his experience, saying, “A really great day run by a super team. The show is laid back with a diverse entry of vehicles, so there’s plenty to see. Set in a fabulous location, what more could you ask for from a car show that supports such a worthy cause. I’ve booked in my 1964 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia again for this year…see you there!”

James Weld, owner of the Lulworth Estate and President of Dorset Blind Association, generously donates the use of the grounds for this unique motor show, which remains the only one held at the Castle. Dorset Blind Association, who have been supporting visually impaired people in the county for over 100 years, are hugely thankful to all their supporters and volunteers who make this event possible. With a fundraising goal of over £20,000 this year, the event aims to raise awareness and vital funds, with over 5,000 attendees expected.

The Dorset Blind Association Motor Show promises to be a fantastic family day out with entertainment for all ages. The Castle showground will be open to the public from 10.30am-4pm. Admission is free but donations are hugely appreciated
