Daventry Motorcycle Festival

The organisers of Daventry’s annual Motorcycle Festival are gearing up for this year’s popular event.

The fourth one-day festival will held be on Saturday, June 14.

The free family-friendly festival will take place in the Market Square and High Street between 10.30am and 3.30pm.

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

One of the highlight of the festival will be the ‘Ride In’.

Hundreds of bikes make their way from Bikers World on Brown’s Road into the town centre and park up on the High Street.

Anyone who has a bike and wants to be part of this special event can get in touch with the organisers.

The people behind the day are seeking help from individuals, businesses, groups or organisations that want to be part of the fun. Chris Stanley, from Unlimited Communications, one of the event organisers, said: “The motorcycle festival continues to grow in size and popularity and is now one of Daventry’s biggest events.

“It is a fantastic legacy from the Daventry Business Partnership over the past few years.

“It has brought in thousands of visitors to the town, helping to boost the local economy, support local businesses and provide a great day out for residents and visitors alike.”

He is now keen for as many people as possible to come forward and help make this year’s festival bigger and better than ever.

Mr Stanley added: “The festival is run and supported on a voluntary basis by a variety of local motorcycling groups, organisations, businesses and individuals.

“We want the event to grow and become a real showcase for Daventry and something the town can beextremely proud of.

“To do this though we are going to need more people and businesses to get involved by volunteering their time to help with the event on the day, or support the festival financially or with a contribution in kind.

“If you can help in anyway please get intouch.” For further information or to get involved with the Daventry Motorcycle Festival, please visit, email or call 01788 890 789.
