The Ten-Two Club Midsummer Classic with Nicholas Mee & Co, Thursday 7th July


The Ten-Two Club Midsummer Classic with Nicholas Mee & Co, Thursday 7th July

What better way to celebrate the long summer days than with a run out in your Aston Martin, meeting up with fellow enthusiasts for an evening of chat, refreshments and live music, and finally heading home as the sun slowly sets?

That’s what’s in store for the evening of Thursday 7th July with the inaugural Ten-Two Club Midsummer Classic from the team here at Nicholas Mee & Co – and all Aston owners are cordially invited to join the fun.

Nicholas Mee & Co have been specialising in the sale, servicing and maintenance of Aston Martins of all ages since 1993. But it was the move to our current premises on the historic Hatfield Park Estate in 2018 that brought a whole new dimension to the business.

Our award-winning HQ, set in the Hertfordshire countryside at Essendonbury Farm, has rapidly become a must-visit destination for Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts and offers a superb setting for informal gatherings.

This led to the formation of the Ten-Two Club, providing a chance for customers and owners to come together at Essendonbury several times a year, chat to the NMC team about all matters Aston Martin, peruse the sales stock and enjoy a barista-style coffee and tasty bacon sandwich.

And now comes a brand new event for 2022 – the Midsummer Classic – to give owners a chance to make the most of the long summer days with an evening of driving and informal socialising.

The gates at Essendonbury Farm will open at 6.45pm on Thursday 7th July, but if you fancy driving here in convoy with like-minded Aston owners, you can join the ‘Run to the Sun’, which starts at 6pm from two separate locations.

For those coming from further north, cars will assemble at The Rusty Gun, just outside Hitchin, before heading off at 6pm for the 15-mile drive to Essendonbury via some of our favourite driving roads.

From the south, the meeting point is The Prae Wood Arms, just outside St Albans. Again, the cars will depart at 6pm, this run taking in the Hatfield tunnel on the way to Essendonbury. Cue a veritable symphony of Aston exhaust notes!

The ‘Run to the Sun’ element is purely optional – owners are very welcome to enjoy their own routes to Essendonbury Farm and arrive any time from 6.45pm.

That’s when the party gets started – with a mouth-watering BBQ accompanied by local craft beers, wine and soft drinks, plus live music. And, appropriately enough, it will continue until sunset, when everyone will be able to enjoy another memorable drive, this time homeward. What could be better?

All of this will be included in the ticket price of £30 per person (not per car) – tickets are available from Midsummer Classic Ten-Two Club BBQ Tickets

The date for your diary is Thursday 7th July and the location is Essendonbury Farm, Hatfield Park Estate, AL9 6AF. We very much hope to see you there and should you have any questions about any aspect of the event, feel free to get in touch!
