The International Mini Meeting is coming to Bristol

Published on March 20, 2019 by Clare Cambridge

If you’re a Mini enthusiast, you are going to be overwhelmed with hundreds of Mini’s invading Bristol for the world’s biggest meeting of the Mini club scene, in August 2019.

The International Mini Meeting is an annual event which originated in 1978 in Germany.  It started out as a small 3-day camp event on the Whitsun weekend. After several years its popularity had grown, even over the German borders and this resulted in an International event which takes place every year in a different country, defying language barriers and creating a foundation of appreciation like no other.  Every 5 years it celebrates the Mini in England where the IMM takes place around the Minis birthday in August.

International Mini Meet Bristol

 

International Mini Meeting Bristol 2019 is a 5 day festival style 1980s themed event for all ages, and welcomes both classic minis and new MINIs as well as their derivatives. The event opens at mid-day on Thursday 8th August, at Washingpool Farm, Easter Compton, Bristol, with a gentle build up to the official opening ceremony on Friday night, by which point most of the participants have arrived.

If you’ve booked for the weekend there will be plenty of things to do and see, including traders, mini displays, street food and drink vendors and meeting points. From Friday there will also be live music/acts throughout the day on the outdoor and indoor stages, plus rides and children's entertainment. On Friday evening the event is officially opened, with a special opening ceremony. Different activities will be organised for Mini drivers and Mini Clubs during the rest of the weekend, including an open topped bus tour, rocker cover racing, club competitions including Sinclair C5 racing and a mini run.

Examples on show will span the entire mini family tree from pristine 1959 originals and Marcos coupes through to the second generation of John Cooper Works GPs, together with many wild and wacky restorations.

Mini History

The Mini came into existence in England in 1959 and remained in production until 2000 in one form or another. BMW picked up the MINI name in 1994. While the German automaker wound down the British version of the car, it began designing the car that would become the new MINI in 2000.  These days, the so-called MINI is a proper modern hatchback — big enough to swallow up the iconic 1960s version.

This event is only open to Day Visitors on Sunday 11th August, tickets will be available to purchase on the gate.  If you want to attend any other day you will need to purchase a weekend Ticket.

Location - Washingpool Farm, the home of IMM 2019 and Easter Compton Farm Shop.  Located just 5 minutes from junction 17 of the M5 motorway in the midst of beautiful south west England countryside.
