The Stranglers Stormed the Castle!

Posted on


The 20th Anniversary of Stormin' The Castle took part the weekend of the September 2010, with over 5,000 in attendance from far and wide, a custom bike show with trikes, custom chops, rat bikes, great paintwork and even a pink scooter, a wheelie machine and dyne stand and 15 bands, with The Stranglers headlining!

With over 100 volunteer marshals, a very organised site, a main stage and marquee, which can house 4,500 with an impressive professional PA system & Lighting rigs,lots of stalls, a range of food from good old fish & chips to noodles to local favourite 'Stotties' stuffed with various Rally fare, Holy Joes for a great cuppa, stalls galore, top rally merchandise (which is probably on sales on e-bay now as limited editions... I must learn to shop early), toilets which never seemed to run out of toilet paper (hey it matters), a variety of Motorcycles and Bikers of all ages were in attendance, from far and wide, a great atmosphere - Oh and its in aid of MAG, in fact the event in 2009 raised £20,000 which was donated to MAG. The event is organised throughout the year by the hard working committee and takes over 10 days to erect, run and then take down.

The main committee for Stormin', managed to once again get the stranglers to headline (previously they headlined in  2004) and for those Biker Stranglers fans it was a delight to see them at this great event, which began with the usual Men in Black theme, along with many hits including Peaches, Nice 'n' Sleazy, 5 minutes and when Always the sun was played - after a weekend of great weather it had such a poignant meaning. The 2nd encore finished with No More Heroes, leaving the crowd baying for more!    

Jim Coxon, the organiser said "First of all thanks to all who came to this years event and a special thanks to all the marshals and support staff who made it possible".    So as we packed up on the Sunday to head home, we feel like we are leaving good friends and look forward the the 21st Anniversary of Stormin' the Castle!
