London & Surrey Mini Owners Club (LSMOC)
We are the London and Surrey Mini Owners Club (LSMOC), organisers of the World famous London to Brighton Mini Run! The LSMOC is a Mini members club, run by members, for our members and we welcome anyone and everyone.
All of our members are Mini enthusiasts, who believe that the Mini is a true icon of British workmanship and most definitely an icon of London. Therefore, what better way to showcase the iconic Mini, than by taking part in LNYDP 2020!

FAKI – the Kimbanguist Brass Band
FAKI – the Kimbanguist Brass Band is a London based African band. We are part of the Kimbanguist Church founded by Simon Kimbangu, a peaceful activist in the colonial era.
The Kimbanguist Brass Band was formed in 1993 in the UK and is comprised of members aged 5 to 70, all of whom are united by their passion for music and their deep willing to spread joyful vibes through their unique and happy sounds! We truly love to perform as a band and have a great time in doing so.
LNYDP 2020 will mark the band’s 10th anniversary of performing at LNYDP! Therefore to celebrate, we will also be performing in the ‘LNYDP Concert Series’, that runs parallel to LNYDP.
The turn-of-year tradition, much loved across the Capital and around the World, is eagerly anticipated by participants, tourists and television viewers alike.
The annual event will be the 34th to light up London and will once again generate many hundreds of millions of pounds for businesses, hotels and restaurants along the route.
