North Yorkshire Minis are a group of mini enthusiasts and owners who organize events throughout the Yorkshire region. Over the years, we have organized a few different events and evolved into our current club, North Yorkshire Minis. We are honoured to have been asked to play for this special weekend event for the past couple of years. And long may we continue to do so.
The 'Mini Adventure Weekend' is an event in the month of June each year. This 3 day event offers the best of classic mini driving, beautiful surroundings, camping with fellow enthusiasts, live entertainment, raffles, competitions and more. A typical event would include a treasure hunt competition.....a day driving around the wonderful Yorkshire moors, looking for clues and answering questions, the winner (most correct answers and back before cut off time) receives a prize. We also do the mini adventure run, which is organized for the Sunday and we try to get all cars to participate. The sight of 100 or so minis scattered across the skyline as far as you can see is amazing. During the weekend, we carry out raffles and competitions. The evenings are based on a social atmosphere, suitable for all including children, live entertainment from the live band & all the different clubs mixing and mingling together. We have our own field area inside the campsite, which is flat and open but sheltered by surrounding trees, it provides an excellent venue for our event. Over recent years, we have had members of the general campsite ask to join in our event and of course they can. Last year, we had members of the public attend the campsite on the same weekend just so they could join and of course see all the classic minis.
The 5:15's are honoured to have been asked to play and support this new and worthy charity that is raising so much money from Northern Soul events to help fight cancer. Our very own bass player, Jay Cee (Jason Chinnian), has deejayed for them on several ocasions. Charity Soul events have been a great success over the past few years and have inspired countless DJ’s to stage events to raise funds and awareness for their fight against cancer. These events are held on a regular basis with the single aim of raising money as well as developing other fundraising ideas to help with the amazing stem cell research work being carried out by Professor Norman Maitland of York University. He is leading light in this field. The success of Charity Soul events has meant they now have representatives across the UK who are holding events. Over the next few years they plan to expand into Europe and further afield with their Northern Soul events.
We need to look after our equipment so we have had flight cases made by our friends at Box Clever Cases. The business is run by members of Yorkshire Beer Pigs and Featherstone Spartans Scooter Clubs and is based in our home county of Yorkshire. Whats not to love?
Seriously excellent service from this company, professional friendly and quick!
Mark of Acomb Signs is a gentleman's gentleman!
He's done lots for us now: T-shirts, stickers, banners, various promotional materials. Hell, this legend even produced a vinyl-wrapped guitar for a charity auction.
Mark's service and attention to detail is second to none. The 5:15's are proud to call Mark our mate.
Ah, the gorgeous velvet-voiced Jess - original redhead and often to be spotted joining us on stage for guest vocals.
