What’s on

The Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show is back for 2020 and we’re celebrating our 40th birthday!

To mark this special milestone we’re turning the clock back to the 1970s and 80s. We’ll be throwing a 70s/80s themed birthday bash and of course, you are already invited!

It’s our party and we want everyone to have fun. Dressing up is encouraged and the visitor who is in the best 70s/80s clothes will receive a WHOPPING £100 cash prize per day! Makes sure you dig out your best 70s/80s clobber… we want to see flares, tank tops, platform shoes, shell suits, New Romantic frilly shirts – the lot!

From humble beginnings in 1980, the show has grown and evolved into Britain’s greatest annual celebration of all that is best about the motorcycles of yesteryear.

The event is a magnet for enthusiasts, club members and traders alike – attracting thousands from all over the country and beyond. It features the finest themed club displays in the world and there is fierce competition for the much-coveted ‘best stand’ award and cash prize every year.

Dozens of private owners offer up their pride and joy for public scrutiny, including everything from immaculate showroom-condition motorcycles to rusty barn-finds freshly dragged from their decades-long resting place. This accessible show has a genuine family feel – with a host of personal touches that all add to the friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Visitors will also discover that the Bristol show’s retailers have a great deal to offer, with quality autojumble stalls from around the UK nestled alongside purveyors of everything related to the scene. From oils to tools, clothing to spares, painters to welders, the Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show is the place to find what you are looking for.
