FOLLOWING the success of the weekend event in 2022, National Motorcycle Museum LIVE continues in October 2023 as a two-day event! Enjoy a host of exciting free attractions and free entry (bar parking charges - only £15 per car).

Don’t miss the return of the ever-popular Henry Cole, Allen Millyard, Guy 'Skid' Willison and the legendary Fuzz Townshend. The only place to catch them live on-stage in 2023.

On arrival to the Museum on the weekend of NMM Live 2023, visitors will be given a free timetable with a full list & timings of all the weekend’s exciting, free, events, including the aforementioned Henry Cole and Friends - which this year will feature motorcycle racing starts such as John McGuinness, Michael Rutter and Kyle Ryde - as well as the Start-Up show and the Meet the Experts feature, presented in association with Central Wheel Components.

The Start-Up show will be of particular interest to racing fans, as both classic bikes from the Museum’s collection, and contemporary racers from NMM partners OMG Racing (for whom the aforementioned Kyle Ryde will continue to race in 2023, this year alongside Ryan Vickers), whose Yamaha R1 motorcycles took numerous victories in the 2022 British Superbike Championship, as well as the overall BSB title with Bradley Ray.

Allen Millyard will also be bringing some of his special builds to NMM Live 2023 for the Start Up feature.

Meet the Experts, on the other hand, will feature some of the Museum’s specialist suppliers & craftsmen (including its own restoration team), in addition to other classic motorcycling personalities who will be available to speak with and answer questions. The feature’s partner, Central Wheel Components, will also be putting on wheel-building demos throughout the weekend of the event.

There will also be the chance to view the latest machines from BSA, Triumph, Royal Enfield, and Langen. 

The event will also feature a large indoor trade area held within the warm and dry surroundings of both the National Motorcycle Museum and its conference facilities.

Additionally, there will be trade stands and displays from many well-known brands, including Central Wheel Component, Sealey Tools, H&H Auctions, and Andy Tiernan Motorcycles.

Furthermore, the museum shop will be open throughout the event selling its usual extensive range of classic motorcycling books, clothing & memorabilia.

Other motorcycling personalities from the past and present will also be in attendance, check the dedicated event page for updates on the NMM website.

Fantastic catering provided by the museum’s chefs will be available in the Museum’s Premier Suite food court and bar area. The breakfast BBQ will also be available from 08.30 onwards. 

Finally, the winner of the NMM’s summer 2023 raffle - in which the prize is a 1974 Norton Commando 850cc - will be drawn by Henry Cole live on stage during the afternoon of Sunday 29 October. 

Raffle tickets are available to purchase online at the Museum’s website or by calling the Museum on 01675 444140.
