It’s 62 years since the Morris Minor was launched at the Earls Court Motor Show, and the timeless beauty of the first British car to reach a production of more than a million small but beautiful units is still only matched by the passion of clubs devoted to it up and down the country.

Crich Tramway Village is probably the perfect venue for the Morris Minor Day on May 9, 2010, welcoming vehicle displays, club stands and trade stalls to witness timed vehicle parades and Minors rumbling across the period cobbled streets or weaving in and out of the vintage tram service.

“Crich Tramway Village provides a unique atmosphere for vehicle rallies,” says Marketing Manager Cara Merchant, pointing to the ancient streets and trams.“The events are always very well attended and much loved by vehicle owners. There really is an authentic air of yesteryear.”

Production of the highly popular stars of the show may have ceased in 1971 but, for this weekend at least, you’d never know it.

For more information about the event please go the Crich Tramway Village website.
