Barnsley Branch Morris Minor Owners Club Annual Rally 2018
Sunday 13th May at Graves Park Sheffield
Countdown to our Rally
Last year was our first time using this new venue and after a very successful day with around 70 cars on display, good weather (one small shower being the exception), it was the obvious choice to re-visit this year. The grounds provide us with more than enough space to display a large selection of Morris Minors as well as other classic cars and bikes. The Barnsley Branch is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year so we are aiming to celebrate with style and expand the facilities at this years show, why not celebrate our anniversary with us. Don’t forget to watch this page to keep up to date with all that is planned.
