Many clubs were in attendance, accessories were on sale, and visitors could admire classic and custom bikes as well as the latest offerings from manufacturers.

Those attending also enjoyed the opportunity to meet celebrity guest Ian Hutchinson and the TT racer was happy to sign copies of his book, pose for photographs and answer questions.

Organiser Claire Lunn, of Independent Events Management, has taken over from husband Jason, who ran the event for the previous seven years.

She said: “It went really well. Visitors were mostly local but we also had people arriving from Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Nottinghamshire and even Shropshire.

She said that next year’s event will be held over the same weekend, January 20 and 21, 2018.
