60 years of Mini: plans announced for anniversary celebrations

Big plans for 60th anniversary celebrations at National Mini and Metro Show

The British Motor Museum has announced plans to expand its Mini and Metro Show as the iconic Mini celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2019.

The show will move from its usual June slot to Sunday 4 August 2019 in what it describes as “an action packed show for all Mini & Metro enthusiasts.”

Highlights will include support from various Mini clubs including the 59 Register, the Mini Traveller and Countryman Register and the Cooper Sport 500 Register. There are even plans coming together for a Guinness World Record attempt a week before the show featuring the longest line-up of Minis ever.

“As home to both the first and last classic Minis, it is only fitting for the British Motor Museum to celebrate the Mini’s 60th anniversary,” said British Motor Museum show manager Tom Caren. “The 2019 National Metro and Mini Show will be held on 4 August, the weekend before the International Mini Meet to allow our international visitors and Mini enthusiasts to plan for a week of Mini 60th celebrations.”

More than 500 Minis and Metros are usually on display at the show, which takes place at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon in Warwickshire.

Visitors will also have access to the museum, which houses more than 300 classic British cars.
