The “Golden Era” Vintage Motorcycle event is returning for its 10th Anniversary Gathering at Yorkshire Air Museum this weekend.

The gathering of fabulous vintage and veteran motorcycles at the museum in Elvington takes place on Sunday (29 July).

This year’s theme is based around the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI so a good number of entries are historic despatch rider machines by manufacturers such as BSA, Norton and Triumph.

The vintage motorcycles will be assembled and registered by 10am, departing around 10:15am to 10:30am for the run out.

They will be returning from noon and gathering for public display during the afternoon.

A museum spokesman said: “There will be 12 Morris Minor Classic cars joining us for the display and, very excitingly, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight have allocated the thunderous Lancaster bomber, together with Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire fighter escorts, which will make an incredible and emotive spectacle in the Elvington skies. A rare sight and sound not to be missed!”

Event Admission: 10am to 5pm. Adults £10; Concessions £8; Child (5-15) £5 and Family £26 (2A + 3Ch.)
