A celebration of all things British! Cars, Bikes, Tractors, Maypole Dancing, Yorkshire pud and Mushy Peas.
This festival of all things British continues to grow every year and this year will be not different.  Based in the beach resort town of Whangamata on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula but yet still only 2 hour relaxed drive from Auckland. 

The next event is happening from 6 - 8 October 2017.  The programme of events for 2017 is still being planned.  However as an example of what you can expect the 2015 progamme is below.  To actually participate in many of the events you need to be a registered participant however spectators are freely able to view most of the events and of course the cars and generally enjoy the atmosphere of this outstanding event.
