Weller headlines Mini United Festival

Weller A busy summer for Paul Weller, who seems to be putting himself about at various festivals – although the Mini United Festival is one of the more interesting appearances.

The festival itself is geared around the 50th anniversary of the classic small car, taking place at Silverstone from 22nd to 24th May and offering everything the MIni fan could want, including the chance to drive Silverstone in your own Mini (or as a passenger in the MIni Challenge race), classic MIni racing, plenty of exhibitions, stunt shows, go-kart racing, driver training and if you like, a tour of the Mini factory at nearby Oxford. Loads of other Minis old and new too, which goes without saying.

Weller headlines the music bill, joined on-stage by Twisted Wheel (who will also be playing) to run through a classic or two. The camping area can cope with up to 10,000 tents and tickets cost £35 in advance for the weekend – under-14s go free.
