Bristol Bike Show to hit 40

It’s party time on the first weekend in February at the Royal Bath & West Showground as the Bristol Classic Bike Show, once again sponsored by Carole Nash, reaches its 40th birthday!

For this special milestone, show organiser Mortons Media Group, publisher of OBM, is turning the clocks back to the 1970s and ’80s with a special themed birthday celebration.

Not only will the best club stand – decorated and manned in a suitable, period-correct way – win an impressive £1000, but the best-dressed visitor on each day will also go home with £100, unless of course they choose to spend it in the famously impressive autojumble or at one of the numerous trade stands within the show halls.


Traders are also encouraged to partake in the 40-year-old vibe.

Aside from the halls full of trade and club stands – and those who have never visited the Bath & West before will be impressed by the number and variety of club stands – there will also be an auction thanks to the good folk of Charterhouse.

Sunshine brings the crowds flocking to the venue.

More details, including those bikes and memorabilia due to go under the hammer, can be found on the website for the show, to be held over the weekend of February 1-2.


The first 1000 people who purchase their ticket in advance will be given one free party bag per transaction, complete with an assortment of products and offers for any motorcycle enthusiast to enjoy.

Discounted advance tickets are now on sale, with a one-day adult pass costing just £11.

Tickets will also be available on the gate at £13 – under 15s get free admission.


Free parking is available on site.
