For a second year we will be spanning across Canal Mill’s brutalist industrial interior.


This indoor exhibition showcases the best of British custom motorcycles. With beautifully built machines, original artwork and photography exhibited all under one roof.

We host a wide range of build styles including; bobbers, choppers, cafe racers, trackers, classics and everything in between, with a mix of debuting builders along side well established names, bringing never seen before machines.

You can spend time checking out the latest lids, leathers and apparel from our extensive vendors list, grab a coffee and donut from Temple Coffee or head to the dedicated outdoor food court for some of the best street food in town by; Holy Mountain Kitchen and Duke’s Pizza, wash it all down and kick back with a drink from our fully licensed bar.

This year will be introducing guest lectures from some of the industy leaders including content on: abrasion and impact protection, starting up your own business, electric motorcycles and the film “From Santiago to San Francisco” by Tom Bing, including Q and As.
There will also be the opportunity to test ride the latest electric motorcycles from English Electric Motor Co.
