Rest of the fam­ily don’t like bikes? This event is for you (and them)

The Brack­ley Fes­ti­val is the com­plete fam­ily day out with stunt shows, a clas­sic bike display, tri­als and scram­bling dis­plays, cafe racer and cus­tom com­pe­ti­tions plus a huge range of new mod­els. Ac­tu­ally set in the town cen­tre, the high­light is un­doubt­edly the clas­sic pa­rade in the high street. With over 70 ma­chines tak­ing part, from 1950s Manx Nor­tons to Mo­togp ma­chines, shop win­dows rat­tle as the bikes thun­der up and down the street – they don’t hang about!

For mem­bers of the fam­ily not quite as in­ter­ested in bikes there is a large fam­ily fun fair, wall of death, fam­i­lyfriendly food court, trade stands, Rock­a­billy bands and Brack­ley’s shops, cof­fee bars and restau­rants – it will be hours be­fore they’re bored. All profit from ticket sales (£7.50) goes to the Air Am­bu­lance and lo­cal char­i­ties. O Info: Brack­ley Bike Fes­ti­val, Brack­ley town cen­tre, Au­gust 13 brack­leyfes­ti­val­of­mo­tor­cy­
