The annual London To Brighton Mini Run organised by the London Surrey Mini Owners Club has to be the ultimate event for mini lovers in the UK. Around 2,500 classic and modern minis descend upon Brighton Seafront after camping up the night before in Crystal Palace. We were worried the turnout might be lower than normal with the International Mini Meet in Portugal being on the same date and many travelling over for it. But I would even go as far to say the event was even busier than last year.
Setting up our trade stand early on the Sunday means we get to watch the front fill up from end to end. Whether the cars arrive under their own steam or in a cloud of steam (and then being pushed into their parking spaces), the owners always have a smile on their faces.
At this year’s event we realised our brand new #OhSoRetro Mini Tshirts & hoodies which seemed to go down a storm with our trade stand being busy all day long. We are always really grateful to everyone that comes over to see us for a chat. Its always a great opportunity to meet people who live further afield.
A BIG thank you and well done to the guys and girls at London Surrey Mini Owners Club for the continued success and friendly reception we always receive at the event. 2019 has already been pencilled in for the 19th May 2019, see you there?
