The fifth Daventry Motorcycle Festival is to take place later this year and volunteers are being urged to help out at the popular event.

The organisers of the town centre event are keen to hear from individuals, businesses, groups, organisations and bands that would like to volunteer, have a stall, display a bike or provide musical entertainment.

The free, family friendly bike festival will take place in the Market Square and on High Street between 10.30am and 4pm on Saturday, June 13.

It will see an array of old and new bikes on display, along with some great music and children’s entertainment.

One of the festival highlights is the Ride-In, when hundreds of bikes make their way from Bikers World, on Brown’s Road, into the town centre and park up on the High Street.

If you have a bike and want to be part of the ride then visit www.daventrybikefest.co.uk to register and for more information.

Chris Stanley, chairman of the Daventry Motorcycle Festival, said: “The event continues to grow in size and popularity and is now one of the biggest events in the Daventry calendar.

“Over the past few years it has brought in thousands of visitors, helping to boost the local economy, support local businesses and provide a great day out for residents and visitors alike. What very few people realise is the festival is organised on a voluntary basis by a variety of local motorcycling groups, businesses and individuals.

“For the event to continue to grow we need more people and businesses to get involved.

“This could be through volunteering, in kind contributions or direct financial support. This year we are particularly keen to hear from local bands who would like to perform on the main festival stage. If you are able to support or get involved with the event in any way we would love to hear from you.”
