"Saturday 18th May 2024 will be a Mini Celebration at the original John Cooper Garage in Surbiton (now 'Charles Ivey' Porsche garage). The Hollyfield Road will be shut, and we would like to gather around 150 vintage and modern minis to display themselves along the road. It is our ambition to have a Mini Cooper representing each year from 1964 to 2024 alongside the classic iconic 60’s minis. Prior to the display, there will be a Mini Monte drive around the area for those Mini cars that wish to participate.
There will be entertainment in the form of young bands reinterpreting the hits of 1964 (and the 60s) as well as showing the original Italian Job. In addition, there will be guided tours of the former-Cooper garage and design rooms. We hope this will be a fun day to highlight the innovation and design of the Mini Cooper as well as mark its first Monte Carlo Rally victory."
Time & Location - Saturday 18 May 2024, 11:00 – 17:00
Surbiton, Hollyfield Rd, Surbiton, KT5 9AJ
