The British Motor Museum is delighted to welcome back the ‘National Metro & Mini Show’ as its first event of the 2021 show season. The popular family show, which returns in line with government guidelines on Sunday 6 June, is the main event of the year for Metros, classic Minis and modern MINIs to celebrate a great day out.
Hundreds of models will be on display including ‘621 AOK’, the first Mini produced in 1959 and ‘X411 JOP’ the last ever classic Mini to be produced at Longbridge in 2000, along with ’33 EJB’, ‘AJB 44B’ and ‘LBL 6D’ the Monte Carlo Rally winning Mini’s of 1964, 1965 and 1967.
Tom Caren, Shows Manager at the British Motor Museum said “After so many cancellations and postponements of shows nationally, we are delighted to be able to go ahead this year and host this well-loved show celebrating two fantastic British marques. Popular with enthusiasts, this show is also a great hit with families. Anyone that has previously owned a Mini or Metro will feel a sense of nostalgia when seeing so many of these iconic models displayed together”.
Food stands selling burgers, ice creams and other refreshments will be available outside whilst indoors there is a choice of hot meals, sweet treats, and refreshments from the Junction 12 Café. For visitors wanting to make a weekend of it, camping is available on Saturday 5 June.
Tickets for the show also include entry to the Museum and Collections Centre, giving visitors the chance to see over 350 cars including some of the historically important milestone vehicles such as the last Rover 100 produced, signed by almost 1200 people involved in Metro production.
The cost for entering a Metro, Mini or MINI online is just £9. Camping tickets for the Saturday night cost £10 per person in advance or £15 per person on the day.
