Your Final Bulletin Ahead of the 2024 MG Centenary National Meeting

With all venues, events, food and beverages, fun and entertainment lined up, the 2024 MG Centenary National Meeting is looking to be a fantastic ride.

With registrations pouring in, NSW is looking forward to welcoming MG owners and enthusiasts from all over the country to Tamworth to help celebrate the Centenary. Did Cecil Kimber ever imagine that the MG brand would become so beloved and enduring when he built six MG Super Sports Morris (what are known as the Raworth cars) back in 1923?

MG is a very special marque which has developed a very dedicated and close knit family around the globe. Celebrating 100 Years in 2023 – 2024, join the celebrations and the fun.

A fun and casual night with old-style country fare, including a pig on a spit, and plenty of time to catch up with MG members from across the continent.
