Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh Announced for 2015


Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh Announced for 2015 Concours of Elegance

Concours of Elegance Following the success of September’s Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace, the organisers can now confirm the next prestigious venue as the Royal Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.

With the gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen, the 2015 Concours of Elegance will be held at Holyroodhouse from 4-6 September, with an exclusive driving tour of Scotland for Concours participants due to run ahead of the Scottish event from 2-3 September.

Set against the backdrop of Arthur’s Seat, the Palace of Holyroodhouse is a truly exceptional venue, standing at the end of Edinburgh’s world-famous Royal Mile, and being Her Majesty’s official residence in Scotland.

As with the previous Concours events, 60 of the rarest cars from around the world – many of them never seen before in this country – are set to grace the spectacular grounds of Edinburgh’s Palace. These 60 cars will be joined by displays of hundreds of other classic cars and specialities from the most prestigious automobile manufacturers and car clubs.

In addition to its unique Royal Palace location, the annual Concours of Elegance differs in other ways from a traditional concours, which usually includes a judging panel briefed to scrutinise each entry and select a ‘winning’ car. The Concours of Elegance organisers maintain that if a car has been invited to participate in the Concours, it is already a winner, with each vehicle owner voting on the other Concours car that he or she considers to be the most elegant car in the event.

The 2015 Concours of Elegance will be open to the public on Saturday 5 September and Sunday 6 September, with entry tickets and hospitality available to purchase strictly in advance.
