On Sunday 1 July, Crich Tramway Village, in conjunction with the Vincent HRD Owners’ Club, will run a Classic Motorcycle Day at the National Tramway Museum, Crich, near Matlock.
This is the second year for the event and with the popularity of last year’s Classic Motorcycle Day and the numbers of registrations so far for 2018, it looks set to become an annual event on the classic motorcycle calendar.
The National Tramway Museum, set in the heart of Derbyshire, is a charitable organisation, with a large number of volunteers, whose motivation is to preserve the history of the tram, and the Vincent HRD Owners’ Club has a huge interest in classic motorcycles, so this event combines the passions of the two groups of transport enthusiasts.
Last year, bathed in sunshine, over 300 classic motorcycles and over 1,500 visitors attended, and this year it is likely to be even more popular.
Everyone has full access to the museum. There is a shop, tearoom and Red Lion pub, and food will be served until 17.00. In addition, there will be displays of classic motorcycles and unlimited tram rides.
Admission costs £17 for adults, £13 for seniors, £10 for children, or £40 for a family ticket (two adults and three children). These prices include free return within 12 months (subject to opening dates and excluding the World War 2 events). For motorcyclists on modern bikes, there is a reduced entry price of £10.50 and entry is free for all classic motorcycle exhibitors, thanks to sponsorship from Derwent Waste Management.
