Motorcycle Live | NEC Birmingham


The UK's biggest and most important bike show - Motorcycle Live - will be starting at the NEC in Birmingham on Saturday 28th November.

You'll be able to see just about every motorcycle on sale in 2016, meet racers and famous riders, buy kit, and get involved in all sorts of entertainment.

Motorcycle Live, often referred to as the "NEC bike show", will take place from Saturday 28 November through to Sunday 06 December 2015. Adult day tickets cost £17.50 in advance and £20 on the door, with concessionary discounts available. Visit for details and to buy tickets.

The National Exhibition Centre is accessible on foot from Birmingham International Train Station, or a short distance from the M40, M42 and M6 motorways.

Motorcycle parking is both indoors and free! Helmet and kit storage is available via Riders For Health, in exchange for a discretionary donation. Car parking is available, but costs up to £12.

In our experience working and visiting the show, weekdays are far quieter than the weekends, so if you can head up there mid-week, you'll get to see and do more. However, bargain hunters may prefer to head there at the end of the show when you're often more likely to pick up discounts from retailers looking to shift stock before they head home.

And, of course, if there are any particular racers, celebrities or events you want to go for, you'll want to head up on a specific date.

The name of the event isn't just for show, Motorcycle Live is an interactive show - with many opportunities to get involved. Whether that's taking your first steps and trying out a motorbike for the first time at the Get On area, letting your kids try out the children's' riding areas or trying the BMW GS Experience, there's something for everyone.
