Bad weather meant the original Prescott Bike Festival 2018 had to be postponed – but what a treat for dads across the country it turned out to be, with the event rearranged over the Father’s Day weekend of 16-17 June.
For the first time ever, the Prescott Bike Festival stretched across two wonderful days in Cheltenham. And there was plenty to keep visitors occupied across 48 hours of biking bliss.
Reflecting on motorcycling history
An intimate atmosphere on Saturday allowed visitors to pore over every inch of some of the stunning motorbikes on display.
From the rare, iconic Paddock Specials through to the bikes of the future in the Electric Showcase, there was plenty of time to soak up the history of biking’s past – and the excitement about what lies ahead in the coming years.
There were plenty of other attractions to keep guests busy, too – including the Exhibitor Zone, where dealers, traders and manufacturers were set up for the weekend. For the little ones, the Kids Zone offered plenty of entertainment, while more than 50 regional gins and 20 regional craft beers kept the adults in check back at The Hill!
Special guests contribute to a memorable Sunday
On Sunday, all eyes were focused on the famous Hill Climb – especially when Zef Einsberg, Allen Millyard and ‘George Formby’ made special appearances.
Millyard had already built up the anticipation by tweeting about his appearance at Prescott Bike Festival 2018 in the days leading up to the event. And when he rolled into Cheltenham with his RC374, he certainly didn’t disappoint!
Zef’s jet bike was another eye-catcher, while the traditional stunt skills were packed with balance, fabulous skills – and even some mid-air action!
At the Carole Nash stand, we were pleased to see flocks of visitors checking out our goodie bags and merchandise, as well as posing for the now obligatory selfies with the Carole Nash crew.
What a brilliant two days. Roll on 2019!
