    A completely new motorcycle show called Mancunia Motorcycle Festival is now confirmed for March 2022.

    The Mancunia Motorcycle Festival is an all-new show that will combine the best of custom motorcycles, food, drink, and entertainment and will be based in the heart of Manchester.

    The show has confirmed dates from March 25 to 27 next year and will be held at the amazing DEPOT MAYFIELD venue right next to Piccadilly Station in central Manchester.

    The show will see new motorcycles being shown alongside custom bikes, parts, accessories, custom builders, brewers, and many other stands to bring an exciting new motorcycle show to the north of England.

    Alongside the custom and new engine bikes on show, there will be a chance to check out the latest electric motorcycles, scooters, and e-mobility products on the market with a dedicated area and test ride space.

    Show co-promotor Will Evans, who owns Manchester’s Union Brewery, said: “This is an event I have wanted to create for some years now. The north of England isn’t well-served when it comes to motorcycle shows of any kind and we really want to bring something fresh and new to Manchester.

    “DEPOT MAYFIELD is an amazing venue, and we have a huge amount of space to be able to put on something truly special bike wise, add in some amazing entertainment alongside some amazing food & drink offering from our partners at ‘Escape to Freight Island’.”
