(Mods, know this might not be the right area but thought it would be best placed here so people can spread the word)

Statement from the BMC Website:

British Mini Day Catton Hall Cancelled

After 16 years and organising over 50 Mini events it is with major regret that the British Mini Club have no choice but to cancel Sundays (September 7th) British Mini Day at Catton Hall.
After a site meeting at the venue today (Friday) it would be totally impossible to go ahead with the show. Both the show ground and car parks are under water. With a weather forecast of severe heavy rain for today, Saturday and Sunday we feel it is in the best interests of everyone that we cancel the event.

We know many of you have been looking forward to the event with it being a new venue etc but we are afraid it is out of our hands. We would like to thank everyone who has contacted us with there support and understanding and kind offers of help. We very much appreciate this. Thank you.

We will endeavour to contact as many exhibitors as we can, but we may be unable to contact everyone. We would appreciate it very much if you could all spread the word as well.

The BMC show team are deeply disapointed that we have had to make this decision, and we can only apologise wholeheartedly if this has caused inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at our planned events in 2009.

We will in due course be inviting all Premier Class entrants to take part in the Premier Class at British Mini Fair in January 2009 (date to be confirmed)

Mini Regards
David Hollis
British Mini Club

Sounds like the "new venue" wasn't a great choice, in hindsight. Be good to have that in advance wouldn't it really?! :(
To be fair to them though the rainfall this year has been unusually high - I know of two other major events which have been held in Aug/Sep in the past and never had problems - both of which got cancelled this year due to weather.

Sounds like the Coventry Festival of Transport and the Classic Car show at Himley have also been cancelled.......

Weather reports are getting worse as the day goes on - think its the best decision at the end of the day.
