The Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, is the venue for the traditional Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show – an event that many deem as their favourite of the year.

With a friendly atmosphere, Classic Bike Shows’ annual trip to Britain’s southwest is well known for the extravagant exhibitions put on by the local motorcycle clubs who go all out to impress.

Hundreds of beautiful classic machines from the golden age of motorcycling go on display at the Carole Nash Bristol Classic MotorCycle Show – marking its 38th year in 2018. 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.

Advance tickets are available to purchase until January 29, 2018, advance tickets for adults are £11 and £13 on the gate, with child tickets only costing £3 in advance and £4 on the gate.
