BMF May Show - Peterborough Arena
16th - 17th - 18th May 2014
The BMF May show at the Peterborough Arena in Peterborough is the season ‘opener’ and is one of (if not the) Europe’s largest outdoor motorcycle shows. The BMF show has been running for over 37 years and attracts vast numbers of visitors and exhibitors alike.
After the successful introduction of new show elements in 2013, we are improving and enlarging them – The Classic & Vintage area will now have a Fire-it-Up zone so people can see and HEAR the machines from yesteryear including Dave Hailwoods display of his fathers’ bikes and cars. In the Adventuring and Overland Touring area, you’ll find more presenters and writers, a fantastic presentation stage and a number of exhibitors who are specialists in this field (see links to each area with further information on the left hand side navigation panel).
The show is open from 14.00 on Friday 16th May for those who have purchased weekend camping tickets and for Day ticket holders the show opens at 09.00 – 17.00 on both Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th May. We are also introducing a brand new ticket in 2014 which will allow access on Saturday day AND includes entry to the evening entertainment on Saturday. (Note this does NOT allow access to camping and all ticket holders must leave the site by 01.30) This ticket does NOT allow entry on Sunday.
In addition to the live evening entertainment there is a great main arena programme which always includes motorcycle related stunt shows and in 2014 we will host the ACU 1000cc sidecar championship as well as our own BMF Moped Mayhem. Exhibitors benefit from a choice of indoor or outdoor pitches and of course the event is well publicised throughout the motorcycle consumer and trade press, as well as local area advertising. And of course there are 100’s of exhibitors with all things motorcycle related from tyres to clothing, boots to helmets and everything in between.
The attendance at the BMF May show is between 35,000 – 45,000 people over the weekend and it is a perfect weekend or day out for all members of the family.
Parking at the show is FREE and children under 16 get FREE entry when accompanied by a paying adult (this includes camping!)
(Please note for health and safety reasons we cannot allow vehicles access to the campsites after 10pm at the May show and Kelso and after 8pm at Tailend. There will be a holding area close to the gates where temporary camping can be set up until the morning or campers can walk their equipment through the campsite. We will provide hand carts that can be borrowed for this purpose.)
