More than 100 classic and current MG models will gather for the WH Brand MG Carfest at the Whaplode Drove-based dealership on Sunday 23 July. The event, which takes place for the second consecutive year, is raising money for the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance.
With last year’s meeting welcoming 192 cars, raising over £400 for charity, organisers are expecting an even larger turn-out to this year’s event.
Welcoming any vintage or modern MG or affiliated marque – including Rover, Austin, BMC, Riley and Wolseley to name but a few – entrance costs just £5 for a display space, £2 for adult visitors and £1 for children, with all profits going to the local Air Ambulance. With games, raffles, a tombola and food and drink available, there’s heaps of entertainment on offer, making this a great day out for families.
Adam Brand, sales manager at WH Brand MG, said: “The WH Brand MG Carfest was hugely successful last year. There’s a great appreciation for MG throughout the UK, and events like this give people a chance to come together and talk about the brand that they love. The pre-launch MG XS will also be on display at the event, giving visitors a chance to see the next generation of MG sitting next to the finest examples of the brand’s heritage.”
Matthew Cheyne, head of sales and marketing at MG Motor UK, added: “Events like the WH Brand MG Carfest give a great insight into the evolution of the brand. The new SUV that we have developed, the MG XS, is yet another exciting chapter, and we are sure that people will be delighted with the next MG generation.”
