Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival 2019
The Great Yarmouth Motorcyle Takeover will be joining forces with Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival again this year, with an estimated 15,000 motorbikes descending on to the seafront on the Saturday.
Centre 81 will once again be holding their Classic Car & Bike Run and Show on the Sunday with a 60 mile ride out starting from Cromer (Runton Road car park). The run finishes at Great Yarmouth where the show part will carry on. Cars taking part in Centre 81’s show will be judged on various categories including ‘Best in Show’, ‘Oldies but Goodies’ and ‘The I’m Exhausted Award’.
Admission to the event which will take place from Britannia Pier to the Pleasure Beach is FREE.
The event is brought to you by Great Yarmouth Borough Council in conjunction with Great Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement Area (GYTABIA), Fish & Grill, Joyland, Great Yarmouth Motorcycle Takeover and On The Throttle.
Great Yarmouth Motorcycle Takeover
We’re looking forward to once again welcome On The Throttle and the Great Yarmouth Motorcycle Takeover into the Wheels Festival. It is a sight to behold as thousands of motorbikes make their way into Great Yarmouth and on to the seafront.
This year, bikers are asked to make a voluntary donation of £2 per bike to park in the event site. This money will help to cover the costs of the Takeover’s attendance with a percentage being donated to their chosen charity – East Anglian Air Ambulance. Bikers can make their donation at Great Yarmouth’s Tourist Information Centre on the seafront and receive a fast lane entry sticker for a quicker entrance into the festival. Donations will also be taken as the bikers enter the festival.
New for this year, we will have a drop off point for helmets and leathers allowing you to make the most of festival. This can be found at the cafe inside the Marina Centre, accessible from the seafront. Run by Sunbeams Play, you will be able to leave helmets and leathers at this point for £1 per item.
Sunbeams Play is a local registered charity with an Outstanding Ofsted rating which provides a fun, safe and caring environment for children and young people aged 3 to 21 years old with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder to thrive. They understand how difficult it can be for children and young people with ASD to engage in mainstream activities due to a variety of social needs and anxieties. At Sunbeams Play they can play, relax and socialise in an environment that is suitable for them, alongside or with others who have the same/similar needs.
Their founder, Monica, is a rider herself and a member of the Norwich Iceni Chapter who reguarly visit Sunbeams and take part in events. All money raised over the weekend will go towards resources and activities for the children and young people.
