On Tuesday 9th July we hosted our 16th annual Classic mini Open Evening. The event was extra special this year as we celebrated 60 years of the Mini and enthusiasts turned up in their droves, making this one of our busiest and best open evenings yet!
Jack Hill was the winner of our ‘Best In Show’ competition. Jack was awarded with show tickets, a years magazine subscription and some great Mini merchandise . Our ‘Most in Need of Love Mini’ was won by Lewis Richards who also received some great prizes and our furthest travelled Mini was won by Steve Gregory who drove his Mini all the way from Kettering to join us at our event. Well done to you all!
This years live entertainment was ‘On My Radio Show’ who delighted the crowd with classic Reggae and Ska tunes from the likes of Madness and UB40. Our very own David Manners was on hand to provide an extra bit of pizzazz and joined in for a song belting out ‘Enjoy Yourself’!
We’d also like to say a big thank you to Cafe2U and The Diner who provided hot food and refreshments and also to our guests, Duckhams Oil, Powerlite, British Mini Club and Derek’s Mini Centre who all helped make the evening such a success.
We will leave you with a collection of our favourite Minis that were on display at the event and just some of the many highlights from the evening.
Happy 60th birthday to the Mini and here’s to the next 60!!
