On Sunday 23rd September, why not join ourselves and many other Mini enthusiasts in the grounds of the historic Stanford Hall in Leicestershire for the British Mini Club’s last event of the year? Entitled ‘Mini Fest’, the event is held up to be one of the most-prestigious Mini gatherings around, with many a classic and modern Mini being on display.
There are plenty of other things to see and do; the arena promises to provide informative fun for all of the family; the loudest exhaust, I.C.E and horn will be sounding and the ‘rustiest Minis’ will be making an appearance.
Mini specialists (including the Mini Sport team) will also be on hand, running trade stands at the event, offering advice, assistance and sales for all Mini parts and spares. So if you’re coming along, please feel free to say hello and ask us any questions you may have about your own Mini.
Stanford Hall – The Ideal Place For Mini Specialists & Enthusiasts To Celebrate A British Icon
With the Mini being a timeless British icon, it’s somewhat apt that the BMC’s flagship event is taking place at a venue like Stanford Hall. Designed and built in 1690 by the Smiths of Warwick, the hall’s construction was commissioned by Sir Roger Cave, the ancestor of the current owner, Nicholas Fothergill.
Its housing of a number of rare and important antiques and paintings reflects the hall’s long family ownership, with each generation adding their own character to the place. Its picturesque setting is provided by its location in the middle of ancient parkland, with a further 900 acres of natural beauty to be enjoyed.
During Mini Fest, the hall will be open to the public, giving interested visitors the opportunity to enjoy guided tours around the house. The nearby Stableyard Café will also be open, offering light lunches and teas for patrons to relax in the comfortable, plush surroundings.
Stanford Hall Mini Fest – What’s On?
Revving off from 10am, the main attractions of the BMC’s Mini Fest include:
- Top Mini specialists, offering the best trade prices and valuable advice for any Mini repair or restoration project you may be undertaking.
- A vast range of auto-jumble stands that give interested attendees the opportunity to locate that rare part they’ve been searching for.
- A live arena to gather crowds for the exciting sound-off competition.
- A ‘Minis For Sale’ arena that gives attendees the opportunity to arrange to sell their Mini at no additional cost.
