Exciting news revealed for National Metro & Mini Show!

The British Motor Museum can reveal a number of exciting new developments regarding the 'National Metro & Mini Show' which is being staged as part of it's Mini 60th celebrations. The Museum is pleased to announce that Peter James Insurance will be supporting the show which takes place on Sunday 4 August.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, this year's show will feature Kelly Bird, well-known British Stunt & Precision Driver, who will be performing her impressive stunt driving show. Her show, which will include handbrake parallel parking, j-turns and donuts, will be performed in a modern MINI to wow the crowd. Adding to the festival feel The Fab Beatles, will be performing a live tribute act throughout the day. Considered as one of the most sought after Beatles tribute acts they have performed all over the world and cover everything from the early "Hamburg" material through to 'Let It Be' and the Beatles 'breakup'.

On Saturday 3 August, the day before the show, owners of Classic Minis also have the opportunity to take part in the Classic Mini Mosaic World Record Attempt. Show organisers are looking for over 600 classic Minis and variants to spell out the phrase 'Mini 60'.
