Branch Rally 2020 Cancelled

We have decided to cancel this event until further notice in response to the governments guide lines on the coronavirus (Covid-19) and how it may affect everyone. 

These decisions have not been easy however we have to think more so of our vulnerable members and followers of our branch rally.

We look forward to planning next years, 2021 event and calling on your continued valuable support. Stay safe all.

This years South Wales Morris Minor Club Branch Rally and Classic Car Show will be held on 10th May 2020 

This will be the third time that we have held our branch rally here at Caldicot Castle and we are so pleased we have been allowed to use this venue again. Our first year here we had over 70 classic cars on our first year with just over 140 last year, many of these being Morris Minors. With your help we would like to see this year be even bigger and better.

This is a family event which is free to enter or just visit and includes free entry into the castle with stunning views and walks around the country grounds.

Please come and join us at Caldicot Castle to see the Morris Minors owned by the members of the branch along with other makes and models.

We will have a small trophy for a number of categories of vehicles as previous years and these can be seens on our facebook page or photo album here on this website.

Trade and auto-jumble stalls (weather permitting).

Teas, coffees and ice cream will be served by the castle cafe at reasonable prices, so bring your packed lunch or picnic to make the day that little more special.

Free parking for visitors
