The MG Car Club Holland will celebrate their 60th Anniversary in 2015. To celebrate this with all kinds of MG enthusiasts, we would like to celebrate this party with our members and international MG friends. The Club also has the honor of organizing the European Event of the Year 2015.

As mentioned above, the Event will officially start on Thursday June 11th 2015 until Sunday June 14th (with the possibility to extend your stay until Monday the 15th). But due to the enthusiastic reactions of so many MG Car Club Members, we have decided to organize a so called “pre-program”, with the possibility of registering as of Monday 8th (for those who would like to make a vacation out of it).

The location of the Lustrum Event will be Event Center Beekse Bergen, in Hilvarenbeek in the South of The Netherlands (near Tilburg).

The program thus far (subject to change) will contain several rallyes in the area with the possibility of visiting several interesting and/or beautiful locations. Also the Safari Park (The Best Wildlife Park of 2013) can be visited. On Thursday during the day the participants have some free time. In the evening there will be a Twilight Rally and a Meet and Greet to welcome all the participants and give you the opportunity to catch up with your friends. On Friday there will be a “Typical Dutch Rally “ and a BBQ in the evening. This will be followed by the Octarun on Saturday and a nice party with a dinner in the evening. Late Sunday morning (in case the party on Saturday lasted a little long) we’ll gather for a full English Breakfast and several MG related activities on the property of Event Center Beekse Bergen.

In the afternoon we’ll have to face the fact that several participants will leave us, so we’ll make sure to have a Farewell Moment. Hopefully many participants will have the possibility to stay until Monday morning before all going their own way.

Very important: you can register for this event at the MG Car Club Holland's website. (Note: to view the website in English, from the home page, click on the event logo which will take you to the event page. Click on the Union Jack and you will be able to view details in English). You will make the booking for your stay directly at the Holiday Park Beekse Bergen or the alternate hotels. Since we have made arrangements with interesting discounts, you cannot make a booking at the Holiday Park or the Hotels with these discounts until the 6th of December (you’ll receive instructions for the booking after registration for the event).

At the location of Event Center Beekse Bergen, there is a Holiday Park with several options to spend the night. You can bring your own tent, caravan or motor home (RV for North Americans), you can book a furnished Safari tent, or you can book a chalet or jungalow. For more details on the various types of accommodation, please check the Holiday Park Beekse Bergen website: under Holiday Homes or Camping. We have managed to organize some very interesting discounts for your stay at the Holiday Park. If you stay from Friday to Monday, you’ll get 25% discount, if you book a stay as of Monday to Monday, you’ll get 40% discount! When you bring your own tent the discounts are different. Please check the prices (in Euro) in the attached table.

Of course, for those who prefer to stay in a hotel, we have made arrangements with two hotels in the nearby area. At the Van der Valk Tilburg you can stay for €89,- per night (2 persons including breakfast) and at the Hotel Ibis Tilburg you can stay for €72,50 per night (2 persons including breakfast). You can park your MG at either hotel and for the Saturdaynight program we’ll organize a shuttle bus that can bring you to the Event Center Beekse Bergen (for a small fee).

Registration for the Event of the Year 2015 will start on 6th of December, so please check the website regularly! If you have any questions, please feel free to send an e-mail to the organizers.
