National Motorcycle Museum announce return of 'LIVE' for 2021

Following huge demand, the National Motorcycle Museum have announced the return of their ‘LIVE’ as a two-day event on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st October 2021! This is the only time that visitors can enter the museum free of charge (parking charges do still apply) and enjoy a range of attractions including ‘Henry Cole & Friends’ live on stage.

To assist on the day, visitors will be given a timetable with a full list & timings of the weekend’s free events.

The weekend will include an indoor trade area, with trade stands and displays from many well-known names including Central Wheel Components Ltd, Triumph Motorcycles, Sealey Tools and Norton Motorcycles. The museum shop will also be open throughout the event, selling a range of classic motorcycling books, clothing and memorabilia.

Some of the museum’s specialist suppliers and craftsmen, and some other motorcycling personalities will also be in attendance as part of a ‘meet the experts’ panel who will be available to have a chat and answer any questions you may have. Central Wheel Components Ltd will also be showcasing a live wheel building demo.

TV star Henry Cole will also be attending for a live ‘Henry Cole & Friends’ on stage, featuring popular personalities from Henry’s TV shows including Allen Millyard. John McGuinness (Saturday) and Peter Hickman (Sunday) will also be joining the crew on stage. The shows, which are to be held in the Britannia suite of the museum are to be hosted by TT legend and TV presenter Steve Plater.

What’s more, the work of OGRI cartoonist Paul Sample will be available to view in an exhibition, with the last batch of his pen and ink original drawings also available to buy during the weekend too, as well as test rides from Royal Enfield Motorcycles and a live ‘Start-up’ feature where some of the most famous race machines in the museum’s racing inventory will be started up live on stage.
