THOUSANDS of petrol heads will soon be flocking to a Dorset castle for an annual motor show featuring more than 250 vehicles. 

The annual Lulworth Castle Motor Show will be returning this year on Sunday, May 12, from 10.30am. 

Featuring live music from The Land Girls, The Bournemouth Carnival Band and The Rock Choir, organisers are promising a lively atmosphere. 

They are promising something for everybody: children, foodies and car enthusiasts – all in aid of the Dorset Blind Association.

Attendees will also have the chance to win incredible prizes in the raffle, donated by Dorset businesses. Prizes include lunch at Rick Stein restaurant, a barbecue, salon treatments and more. 

Neal Burton, a car exhibitor, said the event is a “really great day run by a super team”, adding: “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, has donated the use of his grounds for the motor show – the only one held at a castle. 

This year, Dorset Blind Association has set a fundraising goal of more than £20,000, with the event aiming to raise awareness and vital funds.

Gary Neild, from headline sponsors Blue Sky Financial Planning, said: "Blue Sky Financial Planning are delighted to support the motor show once again at Lulworth Castle on May 12.  

“The 2023 show drew huge crowds and was an enormous success, and we are looking forward to being part of this wonderful event again next May.  

“We admire the DBA team for their energy and passion, and the great work they do. They help so many people live a fulfilling life and that resonates strongly with our ethos at Blue Sky where we are focused on ‘what we cause and how we make people feel.’ 

“Our relationship draws on many parallels, and we love working with a like-minded, enthusiastic team." 

David Rogers, director of another sponsor Daizun Investments, added: “We are delighted to be part of such a meaningful event, that not only celebrates our love for cars, but also supports a truly worthwhile cause.  

“I have been a regular car exhibitor at the Dorset Blind Association Motor Show for several years, and we are thrilled to now be the official supercar sponsor.” 

Admission is free and donations to the charity are “greatly appreciated”.
