We are also working in the background to bring you one or two different things as not only is it MINI's 50th birthday but it's the Charity Ball's 5th birthday!

So don't delay - this will be a fabulous, activity-packed weekend. In addition to M2CB09 the Blackpool Illuminations will be taking place over this period, and you will have the option of visiting the Pleasure Beach and maybe going on The Big One at your leisure. Kiss me quick hats will no doubt still be on sale!

Once again we are looking for event sponsors and event donators and will be chasing (or is that begging? ) again those who helped us raffle and auction some fabulous prizes at M2CB08 !
