Setting up in readiness for weekend show

The Mortons Media team and Bristol bike stall holders are a hive of activity setting out their wares for this weekend's blockbusting motorcycle show at Shepton Mallet...

Labelled the 'Bristol' Show as a tribute to the Show's origins, it's actually held 25 miles down the road at Shepton Mallet, Somerset...

The Bristol Show is the third largest classic show in the UK and probably the most popular for those who want to soak up the journey and enjoy the scenery, as it's in picturesque Somerset, with plenty to see and do. We're expecting over 20,000 visitors to make the pilgrimage to Shepton Mallet, so it's going to buzz, and as most of the action takes place under the cover of the huge halls, the Show is as weatherproof as it can get.

BSA at Bristol ShowOver 600 beautiful classics will be on display — including the Norton Domiracer replica and two rare Moto Guzzi racers —  and over 300 traders and is an unmissable event this year. Our VIP Guest of Honour is Sammy Miller MBE. Sammy has done and seen it all in the motorcycle world and has equal riding ability on and off track. Make a date with Sammy in the Main Hall where he recalls tale after tale from the past and will be available for signings.
