Manchester Motorcycle Show cancelled

Show organisers pull plug after heavy snow blights UK

FOLLOWING the recent spate of wintery weather, organisers of this year's Manchester Motorcycle Show have decided to cancel the event.

A statement from the show organisers sent to Visordown reads:

Commenting Howard Cartledge, Show Director, said,

“With a show like the National Motorcycle Show safety has always been of utmost importance to us, and we just won’t take the risk for exhibitors or visitors. With the extreme weather travel conditions to and from the venue are just too dangerous, and as many as 45 of our exhibitors, and the stunt teams, are snowed-in across the UK and unable to travel to Manchester.”

Howard added

“It is with huge regret and extreme disappointment that we have had to make this decision. We would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard on the show.”

Organisers are in talks for another date in April, further information about this will be released soon. Please keep checking the website for further information and updates.
