Just a couple of minor updates letting you know what's going on over the weekend.
We've had confirmation that the RAF Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight will be conducting two flypasts over the weekend, one with a Hurricane and one with a Spitfire. Although we're based in Bomber County we couldn't secure the Lancaster, but we're sure seeing two other 20th Century engineering icons alongside our own (the Mini, of course!) will be just as much of a pleasure.
The other update is that we have a fixed time for the Rocker Cover Racing. Registrations must be in by 12 noon on Saturday 14th with the heats starting at 1300. This should allow racers to plan their weekend knowing exactly when the racing will happen. There are also some subtle changes to the track this year, although the "Jump through the Flaming Hoop Of Doom" section was vetoed by the organisers. Sorry for any disappointment.

We've been busy. SkegMiniFest doesn't run itself you know...
Our raffle page is updated, and thanks to a couple of eagle-eyed visitors, we've had some updates to the booking pages and confirmations too.
Not long now...
SkegMiniFest 2018 - we're ready for you now!
It's true: SkegMiniFest 2018 is now being planned out and the SMF elves are hard at work behind the scenes to deliver our 8th event.
We have - as ever - listened to our guests and we have some subtle changes in the pipeline for next year, including a change to the pricing structure. Head over to SkegMiniFest Pricing to find out more.
As usual though, we have:
- our full weekend's camping
- a host of live acts throughout
- traders and more
- the (optional) barbecue and a special low price menu for guests
- the virtually famous and quite popular £100 prize raffle
- toilets and showers on site
- prizes for the best Minis, as voted for by our guests
And as an extra treat this year, we also have a pair of Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight flypasts over the weekend!
SkegMiniFest 2017: how we did
Well, the dust has settled, the stage towed away, the toilets removed (eventually) and the pennies counted.
Thank you to all our guests, day visitors, traders, Welcome Inn staff, people making the stalls, the nutters wandering around all weekend in hi-viz jackets and of course everyone else who helped to put the event on this year. You can be proud that we have beaten all our previous totals and broken through a milestone to reach the figure we've raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Give us a couple more weeks for everything else to settle down and we'll be planning next year's event shortly. In the meantime, you can check if any of your raffle tickets won by visiting the raffle page.
