Manchester Bike Show 2022

After two years of frustration, three postponements and even a change of venue, the show returns to its rightful home of EventCity (next to the Trafford Centre in Manchester) on 29th & 30th January.

Following the recent government announcement regarding the lifting of Plan B restrictions The Manchester Bike Show will be able to go ahead as planned, something none of us thought possible just a few short weeks ago.  There will be no requirement for visitors to provide a COVID passport, provide evidence of a negative lateral flow test or wear a face mask, but visitors are of course welcome to do so if it makes them feel safer.

The club and trade exhibitors have shown fantastic loyalty since the first postponement in March 2020 and there is now a brilliant show lined up for everyone to enjoy.  This will include the excellent Delray Rockets, Steve “Stunt Man” Colley and Paul the DJ, plus 100 individual trade stand holders and over 500 classic/custom/modern classic bikes on display.

There will be over 20 individual manufacturers at the show, including Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, KTM, CCM, Ducati, Royal Enfield, Indian and Lexmoto. 

Unfortunately, Triumph, Honda, BMW and Harley will not be represented due to stock shortages and COVID concerns. This decision was made when the situation before Christmas when everything looked at its bleakest and now it is too late for those companies to reverse these decisions.


Opening times

9.30 am until 5 pm each day and parking at EventCity is free with a dedicated bike park right outside the venue. 


Advance tickets are available from for £15 for adults and £5 for children (5-14) until noon on 26th January. Tickets are available on the day for £18 for adults and £5 for children (pay by cash or card).
