National Metro & Mini Show, at the British Motor Museum on Sunday 2 June 2024.



Visitors and enthusiasts can see hundreds of these beloved British cars when the British Motor Museum hosts the National Metro & Mini Show supported by Peter James Insurance on Sunday 2 June. 

This popular show is regarded as the favourite event of the year for owners of Metros, classic Minis, and modern MINIs to celebrate their iconic cars. Peter James Insurance is one of the UK’s leading classic vehicle insurance brands. As specialists in classic, vintage & veteran car insurance, Peter James Insurance already has strong links to each of these iconic marques through its work. 

The show will also celebrate 60 years of the Mini Moke. As a special tribute, the Mini Moke Club has produced two new books – “Singapore to London Overland by Mini Moke” and “Moke: The Early Years”, which will be available for the first time at the show.

Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum, stated, “There really is something for everyone at this show, whether you love everyday classics, weird and wonderful designs and special editions, you’re sure to find something you’ll enjoy! Popular with enthusiasts, this show is also a great hit with families. If you, your parents or grandparents owned a Mini or Metro, the displays are sure to bring back nostalgic memories!”

The show will also feature Concours and Show n Shine competitions this year, offering visitors the opportunity to see the judges assess the cars against their Concours criteria. The competition is free to enter for vehicle exhibitor ticket holders, and entry forms are available from the website. There will be classes for Classic Mini, Metro and Modern Mini.

Hot meals, sweet treats and refreshments are available at the Junction 12 Café, or ice creams and burgers are available outside. Tickets for the show include entry to the Museum and Collections Centre, giving visitors the chance to see over 400 cars from the collection, including the last Rover 100 produced, which is signed by 1200 people involved in the Metro production, along with the very first Mini ‘621 AOK', the very last classic Mini produced at Longbridge ‘X411 JOP' and the Monte Carlo Rally winning Minis of 1964, 1965 and 1967.

Anyone wishing to park their Metro or Mini as part of the show displays can do so online for just £10. This includes entry to the show for the driver and one passenger for the weekend. Additional tickets are available to purchase if extra passengers are required. Advance ticket prices are £16 per adult, £9 per child (5-16 years), Under 5 free, £14 per concession and £43 for a family.

Camping is also available on Saturday 1 June for those that want to make a weekend of it. Advance camping tickets cost just £25 per pitch (max. 4 people per pitch). Camping tickets will be available on the day for £35 per pitch, but bear in mind there are a limited number of spaces and it’s first come, first served. Camping tickets can be booked with your show entry tickets.
