It’s all about ‘Mini Madness’ at the British Motor Museum this Easter from 9 -24 April with a host of exciting Mini themed family activities! Families can explore the Museum on a Family Trail, join the Mini mad characters on a family tour or design and make a Mini in the air drying clay workshops.

On 13 and 20 April, children can join the STEM ambassadors from MOD Kineton for their Mini Egg Rover Challenge and over the Easter Weekend from 15 - 18 April children can enjoy a traditional Easter Egg hunt with a bit of a Mini twist.

The ‘Road Map’ Family Trail takes place every day enabling families to explore the cars in the collection that are linked by name to different destinations around the world. Children can also Make a Mini with air drying clay to take home. The Mini Family Tour takes place every day at 1.30pm when families can meet the Mini mad factory characters, Patsy or Victor, and enjoy a fun and informative tour of the Museum. Throughout the day children can meet Patsy or Victor as they pop up around the Museum telling them about their lives, fashion and music from the 1960’s.

The Mini Egg Rover Challenge takes place on two days only (Wednesday 13 & 20 April) from 11am until 3pm. Children will have to programme and guide their Sphero RVR Robot across a challenging assault course whilst trying to keep their chocolate mini eggs safe. STEM Ambassadors from MOD Kineton will be on hand to help guide children with the challenge.

Emma Rawlinson, Life Long Learning Officer at the British Motor Museum said “We have lots of fun activities for families to enjoy this Easter including a traditional egg hunt! Children particularly love our costumed characters who bring the Museum to life in a friendly and informative way. Patsy and Victor will enlighten them about life, fashion, music and of course cars from the 1960’s!”

The word is woefully over-used, but we think you’ll allow us to describe Bryan Adams as a genuine rock legend. Creating hit after hit since his debut in the early 80s, he has consistently kept his sense of self and his distinctive musical style relevant without compromise. We were absolutely over the moon when Bryan chose to speak with OX, exclusively, ahead of his headlining performance at the Cornbury Festival in July.

It’s a strange thing to be confronted by a famous face whether in the flesh or over Zoom; you never know when you’ll be a little starstruck. Anton du Beke has spent most autumn weekends in my living room for the past eight years but despite that, I had no idea what to expect when we arranged to speak ahead of his ‘Audience With’ at the Wycombe Swan in May.
