Lincoln Big Mini Day Sunday 17th April

Lincoln Big Mini Day Sunday 17th April

Run by the Trent Valley Mini Owners Club at Brayford Wharf Waterfront (LN1 1YX) in central Lincoln.
Lincoln BIG Mini Day 2016 will be the 9th year and has attracted Mini enthusiasts, both classic and BMW, from many areas of the country including Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and ,of course, Lincolnshire. Participants enjoy talking to like minded people but also are able to take advantage of the close proximity to the city centre where there is a wide range of retail outlets. Also available, both on the Brayford Wharf area and the city centre, are restaurants and cafe's to suite all tastes.

Participants are requested to arrive at Brayford Wharf via Lucy Tower Street and to be in position by 10am so to get a good area you need to be there as early as possible because you will be parked on a "first come first served" basis. Over 200 Mini's are expected as in past years. Cars must remain in position untill 4pm. This is a fabulous day for mini enthusiasts and should not be missed. There is no entry fee which helps but please visit the charity stands who are in attendance. P.S. Late comers may not get a place!

Thanks to the members of Trent Valley Mini Owners Club this event has become a very popular and enjoyable day for all who attend so make sure this date is in your diary. This is the 9th year the event has been staged so lets make it as successfull as the other years.

Please Note: The event is from 10am to 4pm and no movement of cars is allowed within these times as stipulated by Lincoln City Council. This will be strictly adhered to.

We had three Mokes there last year and we attracted quite a lot of attention.
See http://thelincolnite.co.uk/2015/04/mini ... -brayford/ for photos.

There is no entry fee.

Hi Chris

I've jut texted Steve Hall as the Mokes Mag says 19 April contrary to the 17 April as above so I'm guessing it's the 17th. Anyway one way or another I aim to be there. It's about a 4.5 hour run for me from down in the depths of East Sussex so I might run up on the Saturday. Any recommendations where to stay overnight ?

Kind regards

Jez

It may have been grim up north ,but it was great in the midlands.
Weather was super, but we had to be there by 9.00 and it was cold .By lunch time you needed your shorts!!!!
