Welcome to Stanford 2016!
Stanford is the main Mini event of the show calendar - a very popular event amongst Mini/MINI enthusiasts and this is the 34th year we have held a show here - a very definite sign that this show is indeed a very Premier event
Stanford has beautiful extensive grounds sitting beside the pretty River Avon. The 17th century House is open to visitors, as are the Rose Gardens, Craft Centre and Tea Rooms.
We pride ourselves on the lovely setting which makes this such a relaxed and happy event to attend. The grounds and house are peaceful and is a wonderful showcase for a Mini show
We welcome all marquees of the model from 1959 to present day to our show - all Minis/MINIS are parked together - however we welcome all enthusiasts Mini/MINI owners or not
Plenty of food and drink will be available either around the site from catering vans or Stanfords own tea room (which comes highly recommended!)
(BBQ's are no longer allowed)
One major feature of todays show are the numerous Traders who fill the grounds with their stands selling all things Mini and non Mini related and normally that elusive spare part can be traced here. Big names and small stands too.
Another lovely feature are the dozens of Mini Clubs who come along in their groups - large or small - and are allotted their own areas to park together (see Club stand booking form below). These stands are very popular and very quickly get filled. This year we are moving some Club stands back to the main field along the lakeside. We love to see the Club stands at our show and they help to form a large part of the days event.
A £100 prize is awarded to the best turned out Club at the show - there is no set theme
Some of the Country's best Concours Minis come along to Stanford and there are 17 classes for them to enter. The ultimate Mini will win £500! The Concours is sponsored by Meguiars, the ultimate American car care company. Their representatives will be on hand to give advice on Mini buffing.
The Concours has a £5 entry fee and we prefer this to be pre-booked if possible, but please come along and enter if you haven't thought to pre-book
Got a Mini for sale? Just come along to the event - we have a special area just for cars for sale - no need to pre-book
A large interest is always shown to our Showplace stand which is a display unique to Stanford - cars which may have been past winners of the Concours or just lovely cars whose owners wish to put their car on display - please contact the Club if you are interested in putting your car on display. These are displayed under a marquee, and you are welcome to stay with your car or meander around the show too.
Childrens entertainments - plenty to them keep them occupied!! Face painting and climbing wall are just two of the activites for 2016!
Dogs can join in on our day too - please keep them on a lead and under control at all times
Gates open at 10.30a.m. to visitors. Show wraps up around 4pm.
Entrance to the show is just £15 PER CAR REGARDLESS OF NUMBER OF OCCUPANTS
