Actual real life shows – remember them? Yes, the glory days are coming back this summer…and in the autumn too.
The Concours of Elegance, presented by prestige watch brand A. Lange & Söhne, has announced the first of its many spectacular features for 2021; a line-up of 95 of the finest British cars celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s 95th birthday. The event was first established in 2012 to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, with a collection of 60 of the rarest cars in the world in the Quadrangle at Windsor Castle.
Since then the Concours of Elegance has evolved into a world-renowned celebration of craftsmanship, design and innovation, hosted since 2017 at Hampton Court Palace. In 2021, it returns to Henry VIII’s former home. It is scheduled to take place from Friday 3rd to Sunday5th September 2021.
Cars from names like Bentley, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, Audi, MG, Jaguar, Morgan and many more are on display, plus exotica such as the McClaren Senna, This is agreat day out at Windsor Castle and as such it isn’t cheap with half day tickets starting at £30. The VIP day price is £80 by the way. Good day to wear your luxury Swiss watch we think – and celebrate some of the greatest cars ever made.
Outside of the automotive displays, Concours of Elegance remains an occasion of pure luxury, with champagne provided by Charles Heidsieck, picnics by Fortnum & Mason, live stage interviews with Chubb Insurance, hosted by Jodie Kidd, and a collection of art, jewellery and fashion displays. Presenting Partner, A. Lange & Söhne, recently confirmed to support the event for a further three years, will continue to showcase some of its most intricate timepieces.
