Brackley Festival of Motorcycling 15th August 2021
Helping to Save Lives
Put the Date in the Diary
We are delighted to announce, that we are forging ahead with planning and organisation for our 2021 event, so please put the date, Sunday 15th August, in your diaries! We are really excited and hope that you will be able to join us.
COVID-19 - The welcome news regarding the imminent vaccination programme, means that we are reasonably optimistic that we will be able to hold the event. By August 2021 a large proportion of the population will have had the opportunity of getting vaccinated and the rules and regulations surrounding social distancing will hopefully have been relaxed. We will know more as we move into the New Year and Spring.
In the meantime, keep an eye on our web site and social media for news.

Brackley Festival of Motorcycling
It all began in 2008 with one man's dream of a "Brackley motorcycle meeting" in the Town centre
It all began in 2008 with one man's dream of a "Brackley motorcycle meeting" in the Town centre. The dream - a few bikers with their bikes and perhaps a few towns people meeting together with a common interest in motorcycles, maybe using the town centre car park. The reality was very different - after lots of hard work, enthusiasm and support from the army of volunteers the "Brackley Festival of Motorcycling" was born using the whole town centre and the adjacent school sports field, a site covering in excess of 50 acres, with every kind of motorcycle sport and leisure activity represented.
The Festival has grown, year on year to be the largest event of its type in the UK achieving national status.
The event runs on a "not for profit" basis, by a dedicated team of volunteers. All proceeds net of running costs go to Charity. Yearly our main charity is the Warks and Northants Air Ambulance and each year we add one or two local charities to benefit Brackley.
On the day we close the High Street and use the road as a display and parade arena, making this Festival unique in the UK.
The incredible atmosphere created by these machines has proved a real winner. The High Street is also home to the BSB race team exhibits, manufacturers, trades and food outlets.
Also on the High Street we have had +70 pukka road racers with both classic and modern MotoGP bikes, we also have owners clubs and custom show plus parades.
The main arena is on the field which is use for display and stunt teams. Year on year the range of displays in this area has expanded to included demonstrations of every off road activity. The field also hosts the funfair, the wall of death, trade stands, owners club static displays, rock bands and a food and drinks court.
For 2021 we expect the price for a wristband to be £10.00 which will include entry to the Festival Site, Classic paddock entry and an event programme. Under 16’s free when accompanied by a paying adult.
