The application form for accreditation to attend this year’s Salon Privé, which returns to the opulent grounds of Blenheim Palace from 31st August – 2nd September, is now open for journalists, photographers and videographers to apply.
Press are invited to witness a world first, as Salon Privé showcases two Concours celebrations within the same event, and are urged to apply via the online booking form with their credentials and preferred attendance as soon as possible.
Returning for its 12th year, Salon Privé is the UK’s longest-standing, professionally-judged Concours event. Confirmed to attend the highly regarded and highly lauded Chubb Concours d’Elégance on Thursday 31st August is a stunning 1939 Horch 853A Special Roadster, which has recently undergone a four-year restoration, and a competition-focused 1965 AC 427 Cobra. Joining the automotive spectacular will be a carefully crafted, hand-picked selection of vintage motorcycles, all of which will be showcased in the stunning grounds of Blenheim Palace.
Boodles Ladies’ Day is a glamour-filled and elegant treat. Held on Friday 1st September, the event will focus on fashion and socialising, alongside the hundreds of beautiful cars on display, promising a day of fine dining, luxury brands and afternoon tea with champagne that runs throughout the event.
Concours Masters, which takes place on the final day, will pay homage to one of the world’s most famous marques, Ferrari’s 70th anniversary. Entitled a ‘Tribute to 70 Years of Ferrari’, Salon Privé will present a timeline of 70 special and very different models from the Maranello-based marque. Early entries already confirmed include a 1949 Ferrari Tipo 166 Inter Coupe Touring, the oldest surviving UK-based car, and a rare UK-supplied 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta.
During year’s Salon Privé, guests and media will have unrivalled access to some of the most exclusive modern and classic vehicles, as well as the very latest luxury models presented by internationally acclaimed marques such as; Alpine, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus and Pagani to name but a few.
Couture lovers will be well cared for too, with, in addition to Boodles’ Ladies Day, the stand-alone Luxury Shopping Village and the EFG Art & Memorabilia Fair. All Salon Privé guests can relax throughout the three days with Champagne, English Afternoon Tea and Lobster Luncheon (Thursday and Friday) or BBQ Luncheon (Saturday only).
