National Motorcycle Museum Live

Following the massive success of Museum LIVE over the past five years, Saturday, October 26 will see the doors of Birmingham’s National Motorcycle Museum thrown wide open, with free entry for all!

Aside from the delights to view within the museum’s many halls, there’ll also be additional attractions for this one day.

Held on the stage in the museum’s magnificent Britannia suite, TT legend and TV presenter Steve Plater will host two stage shows at 11am and 2pm, including road race legends Charlie Williams and John ‘Moon Eyes’ Cooper.


Both Charlie and John will also be signing copies of their recently released books, while Henry Cole and his much more knowledgeable spanner-wielding sidekick, Sam Lovegrove, will be presenting a live version of their TV show Shed and Buried.

Paul Sample, the creator and artist behind the world-famous Ogri cartoon strips, will be attendance, and showing 24 of his original large pen and ink cartoon strips that have never been on public view before.

They are a preview of an exhibition planned for next year, featuring more than 100 previously lost strips rediscovered in 2017.
