National Motorcycle Museum gears up to celebrate 30th Anniversary

National Motorcycle Museum
The National Motorcycle Museum will open its doors later this month to mark its 30th anniversary with a two-day celebratory event. “Museum Live” will kick-off on Friday 31st October with ex-GP rider Steve Parrish hosting an evening from his M.A.D tour. This will be followed by a free public open-day on Saturday 1st November. 

The milestone occasion will welcome visitors from across the country as well as selected industry guests to commemorate the heritage and local economic impact of the National Motorcycle Museum.  

The Museum will be hosting a date from television commentator Steve Parrish’s M.A.D Tour at Friday’s ticketed event for 500. The following open-day’s free attractions will see Parrish host four intimate ‘Stars on Stage’ chat show interviews and live race machine “start-ups”. Other family friendly activities at the museum include the chance to “try a bike”, guided tours, trade displays and book signings showcasing the venue’s vast conference and event facilities. These include 13 event spaces ranging in size from 20 to 1,200 capacity.  

The last nine months of celebratory events, including the installation of a pop-up gallery within the museum, has seen footfall at the museum rise by 40% and conference business up by approximately 10%. With its collection of over 1,000 classic British motorcycles, the National Motorcycle Museum is one of the country’s most unique and versatile event facilities, which has held approximately 1,200 events in 2014.  

Nick Hartland, director of the National Motorcycle Museum said, “This year has been a significant one for the museum and to celebrate the milestone of 30 years has been a privilege. What better way to mark the occasion than to share and celebrate the history of this hugely significant venue with those who have supported and made us what we are today – the largest and best motorcycle museum in the world.”  

Located close to Birmingham International airport, and travel direct hubs to the rest of the UK and further afield, the National Motorcycle Museum is one of the UK’s most accessible attractions and welcomes over 250,000 visitors each year.
