Celebrating the 20th year of the Mini Fair (hosted by the British Mini Club), alongside the 60th year of the Mini, this indoor event promises to be bigger and better than ever. With over 6,000 sq. metres to explore, this well-established Mini event proves to be one of the highlights in the winter calendar. With two floors of trade, static classic car displays and even a special Pride of Ownership element, enthusiasts are bound to be entertained.
With over 100 Mini specialists, you will be able to acquire that elusive spare part or accessory at the show. There will also be a lot of companies with trade stands – including Footman James – AutoGlym, Mini Sport, Mini Spares Centre, John Brown Wheels and Mini Magazine, though there will be plenty more unlisted traders to browse. There are two halls dedicated exclusively to autojumble, so all bargain hunters should take some time to work their way around the halls.
There will be awards handed out to the best three club stands at Mini Fair. Stand space has been allocated for three Minis per club and you will find most of them on the balcony. As the event attracts hordes of Mini fanatics, you’re bound to see some of the best examples of the iconic car whilst visiting.
The Premier Concours finals will take place at Mini Fair, in the main hall. Previous winners from the other British Mini Club events held during 2018 will compete against each other to win the Premier Cup and be crowned the best Mini of the year. Though, that’s not all – there will be £1000 up for grabs for the ‘top three’ Minis.
The Pride of Ownership returns to Mini Fair in a bid to find the best classic Mini and best modern Mini. Those that are successfully accepted into the Pride of Ownership, prior to the show, will receive two free passes to Mini Fair, as well as displaying their Mini indoors at the centre of the show. There will be trophies for both first and second places, as well as a cash prize of £100 for each class winner. Examples of Minis will span five decades and will be a testament to the passion of the owners of the vehicles.
