Default Brand New Midlands Nano Venue

Well at long last it looks like we have found a new permanent home for the Midland Nano Meets as our old venue at The Four Ashes pub still remains unoccupied, empty and boarded up.

The address of the new venue is Mind Body Lab, Kings Road, Calf Heath, Wolverhampton, WV10 7DU and is only 1.3 miles and 4 minutes away from the Four Ashes. (If you use what3 words search for rooms.dives.lodge)
We will be there on a trial basis for 2 weekends on 6/7 August 2022 and 17/18 September 2022 but will hopefully continue into 2023 and beyond

For the first time we are having to ask for an entry fee of £5 per car which will provide cover for one or both days, ALL of the money will be paid over to the landlord of the site who will get £5 per car however many turn up.
For anyone who may want to stay over and camp I have been quoted £20 a car per night as the normally locked gates will need to be left open and someone will need to keep an eye on the premises

It is with some regret that we now have to charge an entry fee but obviously when looking for a venue we were never likely to get the same free deal that we had at the Four Ashes, and last week I spoke to over 20 owners who all attended the recent Nano Meet at Teddybears and all were in agreement that £5 is reasonable

Money will be collected from you after you have parked up so there will be nobody on the gate, instead money will be collected once you are in and you will be given a ticket to write on your car registration and place it in your windscreen so we know you have paid, if you return on the next day just replace the ticket in your windscreen as proof of payment

The venue is near to Calf Heath Narrowboat Marina and the business that are letting the venue to us is called The Mind and Body Lab, which is a Yoga and Well Being clinic , they have toilets we can use, will sell tea/coffee and food for their own customers which will also be available to us and I would encourage you to buy something if you can so we can build up a good relationship with the owner as we hope to have the venue as a permanent one going forward from 2023

They also have gardens overlooking the canal which will also be available to us




Directions from the Four Ashes:

Go past the Four Ashes on your left

Under the bridge

Through the industrial estate and over the bridge

Take the next right

Look for the right turn into Kings Road

Take the right into Kings Road

Over the canal bridge and venue is at the bottom of the road on the right

Through the gates

As you go through the gates seen bottom left, this is the area we will be using

Overview of Kings Road leading to the venue bottom left


Over the next couple of days I will add the new dates to the Nano website so please visit there and put your names down if you can make some or all of them

So glad this has happened, and as I said last week at Teddy Bears £5 is small change compared to the amount of money I've saved over the years by attending these events.

Thumbs up

Many years ago South Staffs MG Owners Club used to hold their evening meets there.
A few remarked it was a bit awkward to find, but I used to go left just before the old Four Crosses pub on the A5, carry on under the motorway, just passed the Dog and Partridge turn left into Queens Road, carry on and turn left at the end of the road and its turn right through the gates and you're there iirc. This is coming from Cannock/Longford Island direction.

Never been to a Nano meet for the simple reason that nothing has needed doing (that's jinxed it!), but the new venue looks so attractive, I might come along just for a chat if that's ok. Would also learn some "how to's" as well.

Hi Malcolm.
Please do come you are more than welcome, quite a few owners turn up just for a chat and to socialise, the Nano is not all about being hands on, the new venue looks really relaxing too so a bit of a bonus.

A big thank you must go to trebor (Rob) for his leg work on finding the place, well perceiving as we did have this place in our sights a few years back but nothing came of it then as it was being run by someone else.

As always all owners of a MGZT, MGZT-T Rover 75 are more than welcome hopefully this will be our new Nano ERA you can read our history below.

Have to agree, big thank you to Rob, without his efforts the Nano's would be a thing of the past, not denigrating all the efforts put in by the Nano crew. Thanks Rob, I feel a big hug coming on.

This is excellent news. Thank you for all your work on this Rob and the rest of the nano team. Your all stars
The entry cost is a bargain. As I have saved hundreds of pounds over the last decade and meet some great people and thanks to the nano team I can do most jobs on my cars my self now. Well done. And I will see some of you tomorrow. All the best Chris

That looks a really nice place. I think everybody would feel better contributing a small amount towards it, you dont get something for nothing after all. Hopefully i can make it to at least one of them.

Just like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Trebor and the crew for all the time and effort that is put in to make our Nano Meets the success they are. Special thanks to Rob for putting himself in the hot seat to find a new site for the Nano’s. Must mention Artic(Steve) for all the good work he puts in at these meets. The £5 is a fair price for all the knowledge that is gained attending these meets.
