What is a Natter?
The regional parts of the MG Car Club are called Centres and the smallest unit within the Centre is the Natter. A Natter is simply a monthly meeting at a pub in the evening where local Club members and their partners can meet up to chat about all things MG and plan future events.

You can find a contact for each Natter below – it’s a really good idea to ring the contact before you turn up. They can tell you which bar everyone will be in or maybe that everyone will be out on an event that evening! It also means that the Natter leader will be expecting you and can look out for you when you arrive, so as to welcome you properly.
Lunchtime Natters are becoming popular – scroll down to the bottom of the page for details.

Other Monthly Meetings
N.B. Some of the above Natters are not necessarily MG-only meetings as we believe in a more open minded approach to classic car enthusiasm. MG is the Marque of Friendship, after all!
