The National Motorcycle Museum has announced the dates for its 2023 live show.

National Motorcycle Museum Live will be back once again in 2023, with dates confirmed for the end of October. 

Spread across two days, National Motorcycle Museum Live 2023 will take place on the weekend of 28-29 October.

That National Motorcycle Museum’s annual live show will give visitors the opportunity to check out a range of features and trade stands, including those from Central Wheel Components, Sealey Tools, H&H Auctions, and Andy Tiernan Motorcycles. 

As for the features, the Henry Cole and Friends Live on-stage show will be back for 2023. In fact, NMM Live is now the exclusive place to see Henry Cole and Friends live on stage. 

Henry Cole and Friends Live this year will feature Cole himself, of course, as well as Allen Millyard and a new addition in presenter and musician Fuzz Townshend. All of the stage shows at the 2023 NMM Live will be hosted by Steve Plater.

Beyond that, there will also be a number of motorcycle racers making their appearances on-stage, including 23-time Isle of Man TT race winner and current Honda UK rider John McGuinness, and former BSB star and TT race winner Michael Rutter, who will both be on-stage on the Saturday. 

The next day, current riders for the OMG Racing Yamaha team will be present and appearing on-stage. This includes multiple-time BSB race winner Kyle Ryde; 2023 Dakar Rally finisher and one-time Isle of Man TT race winner James Hillier, as well as OMG Racing’s newest recruit for 2023, Ryan Vickers, who comes in to replace 2022 BSB champion Bradley Ray for the upcoming season. 

The appearance of the OMG Racing riders comes after the announcement of a partnership between the National Motorcycle Museum and the OMG Racing Yamaha team. The partnership will create “ground-breaking content that mixes old technology and legendary race bikes with current race winning riders from the world of both track and road racing along the way,” according to an NMM press release.

In addition to the on-stage shows, the Museum’s shop will also be open throughout the weekend, and the ‘Meet the Experts’ feature, in partnership with Central Wheel Components, returns for 2023, also. 

Another returning feature for 2023 is the indoor ‘Start-Up’, which will see bikes from the Museum’s own inventory, as well as OMG Racing’s current motorcycles - Yamaha R1s - being fired up.

Further, there will be displays from several manufacturers, including BSA (for whom the National Motorcycle Museum is now an official merchandise dealer), Triumph, Royal Enfield, and Langen.

Admission for NMM Live 2023 will be free of charge, as will parking for motorcycles. For cars, parking costs £15.
