National Motorcycle Museum “Live” Open Day
Location: National Motorcycle Museum, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, B92 0EJ,
Following the previous successes of Museum LIVE, Footman James partner The National Motorcycle Museum will host their 4th annual opening day on 4th November, 2017. There will be a number of free activities and attractions taking place over the course of the day, including the popular ‘Stars on Stage’ and introducing a new feature in the form of ‘Rider’s Wives’.
Stars On Stage & ‘Riders Wives’
Held in association with Central Wheel Components Ltd, ‘Stars on Stage’ will be hosted by motorsport legend Steve Parrish at both 11:00am and 2.00pm on the day. Stars on Stage will be held within the museum’s own Britannia suite and each session lasts an hour.
Multiple world champions Carl Fogarty (MBE) and Freddie Spencer will feature in both sessions – they will both be joined by their partners for a special ‘Riders Wives’ Q&A.
“Start Up” Feature
Get to hear the grand roar of engines! Multiple guest vehicles will be on display throughout the day, being fired up to the delight of crowds in the Museum Live’s ‘Start Up’ element.
Autojumble and Trading
As usual there will be a large indoor autojumble for visitors to enjoy, view and buy various motoring paraphernalia. The autojumble will be held within the NMM’s conference facilities – so whatever the weather, you’ll be able to browse to your heart’s content.
The National Motorcycle Museum have been holding a raffle with the prize being one of the best classic motorcycles in the world - 1960 BSA DBD34 Gold Star Clubman 500cc! It’s £2.00 for a ticket and even the runner’s up prize is incredible: a 1955 BSA C11G 250cc!
The raffle will be drawn on the afternoon of Museum LIVE and if you are interested in participating, you can still purchase a raffle ticket online.
Entry and Parking
Car parking at the museum costs £5 per car whilst motorcycle parking is completely free. However, the event has proved popular over previous years, so the museum encourages visitors to car share if it is possible.
