Romney Marsh Ride-in Bike Show This JuneElk Promotions’ popular Ride-in Show and Bike Jumble returns to Kent on 23 June. 

Elk Promotions’ popular Romney Marsh Classic Bike Show and Bike Jumble is set to return on Sunday 23rd June this year, at the usual Marsh Road, Hamstreet venue.

True to tradition, there will be an impressive collection of privately-owned classic, vintage, and veteran bikes on display, alongside club stands. Local band Tim Phillips and The Rockitmen are back by popular demand, playing tunes from the 1950s to the present day and adding to the festive feel of the event.

The Romney Marsh Show consistently draws a variety of marques and models. Last year was no exception, with the coveted ‘Best Classic Bike’ prize awarded to Ron Hyder for his exceptionally rare 500cc 1937 Koehler-Escoffier. ‘Post Classic’ was claimed by Matthew Hazle with his immaculate 900cc Kawasaki Z1, while The Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club (VJMC) Kent branch took home ‘Best Club Stand’.

Visitors riding their own bike to Romney Marsh can enter the Ride-In Show, with £25 spot-cash prizes on offer for the Best Classic (pre-1980) and Best Post-Classic machine. There’s no extra charge – just ride in, pay the regular entry fee and park in the designated area.

For those in search of rare parts or handy tools, there will be the usual array of traders and jumble stalls. Workshop Clear-Out stalls will be available at the bargain rate of just £15, which includes entry for two people, perfect for those wanting (or needing!) to declutter.

The Free BikeMart display-to-sell area also returns, allowing visitors to buy and sell complete machines. Bikes can be dropped off or ridden into the event at no extra cost, with only an entry ticket required.

The Romney Marsh Classic Bike Show and Bike Jumble takes place at Marsh Road, Hamstreet, Kent TN26 2JD, with easy access from the M20 motorway at Ashford.

Gates open to the public from 10am on Sunday 23rd June and ticket prices have been held at the 2022 rates – just £5 for adults and £4 for seniors (age 65 and over). Accompanied children under 16 get in for free. Earlybird Admission, with entry from 8am, is £10.

Tickets are available online or visitors can pay by card or cash at the gate. Advance tickets, stall bookings and all other info can be found at www.elk-promotions.co.uk
