Stafford set for a double delight

It’s set to be double the value for showgoers this autumn, as thanks to the impact of Covid-19 two huge bike events are set to combine into one great show.

The Classic MotorCycle-backed April Stafford show was originally postponed until later in the summer, but now following government advice it has been moved again… and the decision made to combine it with its sister event in October.

Nigel Hole, events director at organiser Mortons Media Group said: “The safety and well-being of everyone is the most important factor and key reason for postponing.


“The show will now be joining forces with its ‘sister’ event in October, which takes place at the Stafford County Showground on Saturday and Sunday, October 10 and 11.

“All ticket and trade bookings will be honoured for these new dates. However, if you are unable to attend, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”

April Stafford will be incorporated into October’s event, so expect even more motorcycling diversity.

The existing October event, which usually has a more modern theme and is backed by sister magazine Classic Motorcycle Mechanics, will now include the best of both events, with organisers working hard to finalise a programme of events – the April show had been set to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day.


TCM editor James Robinson said: “The postponement in April was a huge disappointment but totally the right decision to make. However, we are very much looking forward to seeing everyone in October and celebrating our great passion for motorcycling.”
