The popular Daventry Motorcycle Festival will take place again this year on Saturday June 11th commencing at 10 am.
Although advertised as a motorcycle festival, it's primarily a family-orientated event with no charge for attendance or most of the entertainment. It will begin with over one-hundred motorcycles, of all styles and ages, including Daventry built Heskeths, riding into Daventry from Bikers World (opposite Daventry Town Football Club). After they have completed a short designated route around the town, the motorcycles will be lined up along the High Street for all to admire. More »
After this point the riders and families will be at liberty to wonder about and look at the variety of bikes, stands and absorb the all-day entertainment that is on offer including local bands, entertainers, go-karts and numerous fairground attractions.
Additionally, as this event also coincides with the Queen's official 90th birthday, the organisers, in conjunction with Daventry Town Council, are planning to make it a celebration of this occasion. Therefore, the centre will be draped in a sea of red, white and blue whilst the motorcyclists have been asked to decorate their bikes with Union Flags. It is also hoped that local people will also enter into the spirit of the event either by bringing their own flags or maybe utilizing the opportunity to wear royal-themed costume.
The festival is entirely organised by volunteers and additional assistance is always very welcome, especially on the day to help with marshalling and other activities; furthermore, there is still time for local groups to apply for a stall to promote their organizations. For this, to book on to the ride-in or volunteer please visit the DMF16 website: www.daventrybikefest.co.uk » Less
