Daventry Motorcycle Festival rides into town

On Saturday 8th June 2019, one of the most popular events in the Daventry diary took place as the town hosted Daventry Motorcycle Festival.

Now in its ninth year, the festival attracted large crowds, who came out to enjoy the day despite the drizzle. Alongside the brilliant display of bikes, there was live music, street entertainment, a stunt show and tasty food and drink to be sampled.

As is tradition, the Motorcycle Festival began with a ride-in, led by Daventry Mayor, Cllr Mike Arnold. He said: “It was a real privilege to lead the ride-in and officially open Daventry Motorcycle Festival. It was great to spend the day meeting members of the public, stall holders and of course the many motorcycle owners who brought their bikes to display at the festival. Huge thanks to the organisers for their dedication and hard work in making this fantastic Daventry event a big success once again.”

Although the day started out with rain, the weather brightened up later on. Crowds gathered in the town centre to enjoy the free event, which has become a highlight of the Daventry events calendar. 

Scott Greig, Chairman of Daventry Motorcycle Festival, said of the day, “It was brilliant to see so many people braving the elements to enjoy the event. I would like to pass on my thanks to the small team of volunteers that supported the festival, as well as Daventry Town Council, Daventry residents, local businesses and everyone else who helped make the day a success.

As an organiser it’s always great to meet people on the day and hear their positive feedback on our free, family-friendly event. We even had a live feed to Australia so a mother could see her son perform on stage. Join us again next year for an even bigger and better event, and hopefully some sunshine!”

Daventry Motorcycle Festival will return on Saturday 13th June, 2020. If you would like to be involved, either as part of the organising committee, or would like to help on the day, please contact Daventry Motorcycle Festival directly via info@daventrybikefest.co.uk.
