Programme of Events

Plans are well in hand for BMF 2018, which is scheduled to run from Friday to Sunday, July 13 to 15 on the campus of historic King's Edgehill School (KES) in Windsor,NS.

The famous MG Guru John Twist will be attending this year's festival (that's him on the left) and will be featured in a number of activities. Come and meet him at the Street Party and click on John Twist is Coming for full details.

  • Friday evening we will kick off the Festival with a Street Party in downtown Windsor (unlike last year, when that event had to be called off after the Town received a grant for a major street improvement project).

  • On Saturday morning, KES will serve breakfast (complete with hot coffee!) in their Cafeteria. For Saturday daytime, we are inviting food vendors who will offer snacks and lunchtime goodies to participants and spectators.

  • All day Saturday we'll have the usual slate of events and displays, with the public invited to attend. This year we'll be making a special effort to keep younger spectators entertained while their parents focus on the cars. Emerald Tide has already accepted our invitation to serenade us with their selections of lively Celtic tunes.

  • BREAKING NEWS! By popular demand THE SKIT is back, produced by 21st Century Bond productions! The always unpredictable Mark and Margaret Bond and fellow cast members will entertain us after lunch on Saturday. Bring a folding chair.

  • The traditional Valve Cover Races will again see members pitting their model racers against the competition, doing what they can to head off last year's unseemly displays of winner's bombast (just kidding!). If you intend to enter, you should download and carefully read the Official Rules

  • Saturday evening is reserved for the Annual BATANS Awards Banquet.

  • Sunday morning we will again congregate at The Spitfire Arms for a British-style breakfast. Following breakfast there will be a road tour of the local area - details to be announced.

To acknowledge their preponderance in BATANS (100 out of 450+ cars), MGBs have been designated as the Featured Car for 2018. For sure, we expect to see a lot of serious competition for the Best of Show in that category. MGB guru John Twist will share his problem-solving expertise on selected cars (see above).

Come for the cars. Stay for the fun!
