The Heritage Summer Bike Show
Due to so many uncertainties at the start of the year we are unable to put on the Sprint 2021 as planned but still want to offer classic and custom bike enthusiasts an event to look forward to.
On August 15th at Betteshanger Park near Deal we will have a great collection of bikes on display - old and new, road and race, custom and concours. There’s going to be a chance to see and hear many of them fire up as they do parade runs on the track and time to chat with owners about how they have re-stored and re-worked their bikes.
Alongside all the gleaming machinery we expect to see club displays, custom builders, bike restorers, trade stands and new bike sales. There will also be a Bike Mart for owners to sell bikes or 2nd hand equipment. As always, good food and drinks will definitely be on site - and because its going to be another blazing summer, the ice-cream van will be in attendance! If you would like to display and/or parade your bike fill in the Exhibitor form and send it through
We’d really like to offer as many clubs and individuals as possible the chance to exhibit at the show. There is enough space for some large stands so you can spread out – tell others about what makes your marque the best and let’s see some great exhibits.
We also want to see crafts people and customisers demonstrate their skills and products. – engineering, upholstering, painting, polishing/cleaning, engraving, wheel building etc. Promote yourselves and talk with customers about how you can help with their re-builds or custom projects. Link below to a booking form
People also come along with money in their pockets and a hunger in their bellies!
If you are running a catering business offering interesting and good value food please let us know. Catering concessions are managed separately and will be offered subject to numbers of stalls and type of food
Other exciting attractions are being finalised and will be announced in the coming weeks. Watch this site or our Facebook page for the latest information
So put the date August 15th in your diary –and make your way to the premier two-wheel event in East Kent.
