Flares in fashion for a classic Bristol Show!

Thanks to the fact that the Carole Nash Bristol Classic Motorcycle Show is celebrating its 40th birthday in 2020, the focus for the show is going to be a light-hearted look back at the Seventies and Eighties.

The organisers will be throwing a ’70s/’80s-themed birthday bash and dressing up is positively encouraged, with a cash prize for the best-dressed visitor on both days.

So flares, tank tops, platform shoes, shell suits and New Romantic frilly shirts will be flavour of the day!


The Bristol Show is well-known for its expansive display of owners’ clubs stands and they will be joining in with the themed fun too.

The wonderful and expansive mix of club stands packed into the halls at the Royal Bath & West Showground, deliver a rare treat for motorcycle enthusiasts.

A quick browse of the A-Z list and all the big-hitters are there, from the likes of the multi-interest VMCC and VJMC through to the specialist owners’ clubs covering marques such as BSA, Norton, Suzuki and Kawasaki, among others.

The main hall at Bristol sees club and private entries in the limelight.

Alongside the machines on the show’s club stands, the private entries will compete for a host of show awards, including the coveted Best in Show.

Of course, it’s not all about the bikes that are on display, as there will be hundreds of traders and vendors – selling spare parts, tools, books, magazines, signs and even complete machines – both inside and in the expansive outdoors autojumble area.

Additionally, 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.
