Now a regular feature in the Daventry town centre calendar, the Daventry Motorcycle Festival is set to take over the streets of the town again this Saturday. This free and family-friendly event will have live music, a stunt show, street performers, a free children’s fair, traders, exhibitors, a show & shine competition and much, much more. Eight-times Guinness Word Record Holder, Andrei Burton will also be back with an all new Stunt Show in the ‘Cottons’ Arena on the Market Square at 11am, 12:30pm & 2:30pm
The Motorcycle Festival has become a symbol of the arrival of summer in Daventry and the signature feature of the festival is the Mass Ride-in which will ‘kick-start’ the event. If you’ve attended the event previously, you’ll have seen the spectacle of the ‘Blood Bikes’ escorting the mass procession into the festival.
BBC Radio Northampton’s Martin Heath will be taking on the role of Master of Ceremonies with appearances from: Chloe Jones – Daventry’s own BSB Junior Supersport Rider; Zoë Cano, Author, Motorcycling Adventurer & Travel Writer and Pete ‘The Restorer’ Thorne from ITV’s “The Motorbike Show”.
Any bike riders who would like to join in the parade are asked to arrive at the ride-in rendezvous no later than 9am at Daventry Football Club, Browns Road, Daventry, NN11 4NS. The Ride-In will leave around 9:45am led by the SERV OX Bucks Berks Northants Blood Bikes arriving at the festival at around 10:00am
SERV OBN Blood Bikes is run entirely by Volunteers who provide a rapid response out-of-hours medical transport service which is provided completely Free of charge to the NHS. The organisers are asking the ride-in parade members for a donation of £5.00 per person which will be going directly to the Blood Bikes. Riders can pre-register to take part in the Ride-In at http://www.daventrybikefest.co.uk/ride-in/
