The National Metro & Mini Show 2018

Join Metropower on 3rd June for the biggest Metro specific show of the year! The event take place in the grounds of the recently-refurbished British Motor Museum at Gaydon.

What is the National Metro and Mini show?

The National Metro and Mini show is a one day show for all Metro, Mini and MINI ( BMW ) owners and all the variants that go with these iconic British cars. Both Metropower and Metro Owners Club will be in attendance which should see a great variety of cars, from the earliest 1980's A-Series right up to the modified performance Metros and Rover 100s.

Through out the day there will be a number of competitive and social competitions taking place such as the 'Clean Me' award for the dirtiest car, the 'Beige' award for the most boring colour scheme, the 'Mini Me' award for the car that looks most like its owner and finally the 'Rusty but Running' award for the rustiest but road legal car (!)


The British Motor Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of historic British Cars; it boasts nearly 300 cars in its collection which span the classic, vintage and veteran eras.
