The event will also feature trade stands & displays from many well-known names from the wonderful world of motorcycling. The museum shop will be open throughout the event selling a huge range of classic motorcycling books, clothing & memorabilia.


Who will be there?

TT legend & TV presenter Steve Plater will host two special free to enter Henry Cole & Friends stage shows at 11.00am & 2.00pm.


Held on the stage in the museum’s Britannia suite, these now legendary free one hour chat shows will feature TV’s Henry Cole and Sam Lovegrove, as well as whole host of motorcycling personalities from the past & present. More celebrities joining Henry on stage will be announced in the coming months. All guest stars will also be making personal appearances to sign memorabilia in addition to some special book/memorabilia signing sessions.
