JAE 2021 - All the info you need!

After a year's hiatus (thanks COVID!) the MSCs flagship show is back for 2021 and promises to be bigger and better than ever!


NB: There are some additional rules relating to the show during COVID this year so I strongly advise everyone to read this entire thread before committing to attend the show.

Thursday 12th August - Sunday 15th August

JAE is now at the Norfolk Showground, which is just outside Norwich.

What's going on at JAE this year?
A lot is still TBC as due to the pandemic, it's only just been confirmed to be happening, but here's some stuff that's happened in past JAEs
  • Stage with live entertainment, and performances from live bands
  • There will be the traditional JAE Pub Quiz, maybe we'll enter this year 🤔
  • Movies after dark
New for 2021: NAE - Norfolk Auto Extravaganza
To be held on the Sunday, this will be a separate part of the show where owners of any car/bike from the local area can arrive to show off their wheels. More info on the JAE website

Advance weekend ticket: £45 - Buy here
Weekend ticket at the gate: £60 - definitely worth buying in advance!

Important note about camping this year (COVID):

As a result, if you intend to CAMP at JAE, we strongly recommend you purchase your tickets in advance as gate ticket options may be not be available if capacity limits are reached.

I'm assuming then if it does get cancelled, refunds won't be happening from them

I'll have a think about this, it's a bit of a drive and I'm not sure my car counts as 'well maintained', plus the risk of throwing £45 into a big hole, but it would be fun to actually go to a show in my own car, plus meet some of the people I've spoken to on here :)
