SkegMiniFest 2020 has been cancelled
It is with great regret that we have cancelled SkegMiniFest 2020.
The current situation still brings us great uncertainty and there are so many aspects of SkegMiniFest that are affected even before starting the event itself.
Given this, and our desire to put on the best event we can, we've taken the decision that the 10th anniversary event which would have happened this year will be postponed until 2021.
We will shortly be contacting all existing bookings to see if people would prefer a refund of this year's booking, or to transfer their booking to next year. When the booking pages reopen, they will be for 2021 bookings.
Stay safe, stay home but stay connected.
news: SkegMiniFest number 9 is all over 8-(
After many months of planning, frenetic (and not so frenetic) activity, the field is cleared, everyone's gone home and now we take stock of what just happened.
Rain, wind, sun; none of these stopped us and our guests having a fantastic weekend in Skegness. To be fair, while the rain was heavy it was by no means constant. There was barely any mud, let alone anything you could get stuck in (as you can see in the photo), so if you missed out because you thought the weather would be bad then tough luck.
We are still preparing the final total that will be going to Macmillan but that will be announced on here as soon as we're ready. In the meantime, we're also starting the planning for next years' event, and this is going to be a big one for us as it's our TENTH!
Thank you to all who attended, helped, organised, played, served, cooked, donated and otherwise supported. We'll be calling on you again soon.
2018 - wow - thank you all
Thank you to the fantastic people who:
- attended, including our furthest traveled Mini from Exeter
- helped out with this year's event, like the muppets in hi-viz jackets wandering around all weekend keeping things running
- supported this year's event in many ways, including the local (and national) businesses who helped so much to keep our costs down - and sometimes at extremely short notice, thank you Screwfix Skegness!
The figure above is our best ever result at SkegMiniFest, and in the very near future we will be having a nice big cheque handed over to Macmillan Cancer Support.
As ever, we need a bit of a rest now before the organising of next year's event gets under way, but keep an eye out for the booking being opened for 2019!
