GEMS SET TO SPARKLE!
This year’s Garden of England Motorcycle Show (GEMS), on 15th/16th June is all set to continue its well-earned reputation as a show that really sparkles!
One of the friendliest bike shows in the UK, this year’s event happens to coincide with Father’s Day so will give many a dad a good excuse to escape putting up those shelves!
Not that anyone needs an excuse for attending this well established event at the Hop Farm Country Park, Paddock Wood, Kent. Building on a successful formulae of arena activities, trade stalls and dozens of side-shows, this year’s show offers even more!
Starring in the main arena will be the top Godbold-Lings Motocross Display team performing their high-flying precision motorcycle acrobatics while less precise, but still highly entertaining, will be Motoball, the biking version of football without Beckham’s foot!
A military display with tanks and armoured vehicles provides some added excitement while Sunday sees a special show by renowned Quad-bike ace Matt Coulter, the Kangaroo Kid, performing his amazing routine on mainly two of the quad’s four wheels!
Father’s Day or not, there’s plenty for the family too with helicopter pleasure rides, simulators, mini-motos, children’s quad bikes, carts and inflatables plus a fun fair – you even get free entrance to the country park!
Open to all, weekend camping is also available with live entertainment on Friday & Saturday night in the famous Biker’s Beer Barn.
