Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum

Due to the recent Coronavirus restriction’s the well-known Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum is currently closed and has been forced to cancel all planned events for April and May. The Spring Auto Jumble due to take place on 3rd May has been postponed to Sunday 13th September.  Dates are subject to confirmation and will be confirmed as soon as the situation allows. 

It is hoped that by the beginning of June the Government will be allowing large gatherings to take place and that the Sammy Miller Motorcycle Museum will be fully open, including the new 10,000sq ft extension, along with the craft shops and Tearooms.

Vintage Japanese Bike Day 7th June 2020

The organisers are very much hoping that this event, which showcases some of the most wonderful Japanese bikes, can take place but the venue will follow Government advice and plan for June 2021 if the situation remains as it and large gatherings are still not permitted.  Email, Facebook and Twitter will be updated to keep everyone informed.

Rickman Enthusiasts Day 21st June 2020

By remaining positive and with the help of everyone ‘Staying at Home’ to give our wonderful NHS a chance to get on top of this virus, it is hoped the museum can still hold what was one of the most successful events of 2019.  Last year we had the world’s greatest collection of Rickman motorcycles on display and of course Don and Derek Rickman were there in person chatting with everyone and signing many autographs!  Trade stands and interesting displays will once again be there for everyone to enjoy.  Don’s 1902 Ariel will also be on display, a bike which Don restored and successfully rode in the London to Brighton Rally in 2019.  Sammy Miller will be in attendance to meet all visitors and on hand to chat about his bikes and regale stories of his many wins as a World Champion trial rider.

The 2020 event runs on Father’s Day, a great time to come together to celebrate life, dads and bikes!

One of our best and biggest events and Chelsea Borchert, Rickman Enthusiasts Day organiser, receiving her much deserved award from Don and Derek.

Other planned event dates for 2020 are:

Norton Day – 14th June

Italian Day – 5th July

Harley Day – 26th July

Scooter Day – 9th August

Two Stroke Day – 16th August

Goldwing Day – 23rd August

Autumn Auto Jumble – 13th September

The Museum will continue to release updates on all events and are sure that visitors will be very impressed with our new extension and have re-organised the museum so that the extensive range of bikes can be seen in their full glory, with icons such as the world famous GOV 132.
