The Garden of England Motorcycle Show, Hop Farm Country Park, Paddock Wood, Saturday 14th – 15th June 2003, 10am-5pm both days.

This annual event just gets bigger and better and this year’s will be a real gem! Apart from the main exhibitor and trade stands, as the Sunday is Father‚s Day, there‚s also a wealth of activities for the whole family.

The Main Arena offers a load of entertainment, with stunt riders, including the explosive Jake Semtex. And, performing for the first time at GEMS, the ‘Flying Gunners’, from the Royal Artillery. Featured on The National Lottery Live, You Bet, Record Breakers and of course The BMF Show, these guys display riding skills that have to be seen to be believed.

Another first at GEMS – see the Ken Fox Troupe defy gravity as they hurtle around the forever popular Wall of Death!

Watch the military might of the car crushing tanks, see demos by KTM works riders. Mix all of this with mini-motos, simulators, quad bikes and inflatables for the kids, a funfair, sideshows, competitions and giveaways and you can soon see why this event has something for everyone.

On Sunday, the famous Red Devils Parachute Display Team drop into the Arena, with amazing accuracy. Definitely an event not to be missed – a real Fathers Day treat!

But this GEM becomes a real jewel under the night sky. Campers get a great party atmosphere at the ‘Beer Barn’ and enjoy the sound of V8 (Friday) and the Saturday double bill featuring Glasshouse and the Bet Lynch Experience.

Spread the word, this event is open to everyone! Just hop on down to the Hop Farm and soak up the atmosphere by night or day, June just wouldn’t be the same without it!
