Triumph Hinckley is one of the most modern motorcycle factories in the world, employing over 700 people, 300 of whom work in R&D. The factory manufactures 25,000 motorcycles each year, half of Triumph’s annual production.
The factory tours – which are available on a first come, first served basis – will take place over the weekend of 31 August – 2 September. Visitors will get the chance to view its extensive machine shops before arriving in assembly for a look at how the bikes are made.
Triumph Live, which takes place the same weekend at Mallory Park Circuit, will play host to headlining band Kaiser Chiefs and Brit rockers Reef. Visitors to the festival will also be treated to a host of other live bands; the Wall of Death, road, track and off-road demo rides as well as a look at the latest range of Triumph motorcycles – including the brand-new Trophy – together with a selection of some of the UK’s best customised Triumphs.
Festival tickets are priced at £47 for a weekend pass or £27 for Saturday-only access. Entry for under 16s is free when accompanied by a paying adult. Festival tickets include access to the factory tour, but as places on tours are limited, you must specify you wish to take part in a tour when booking your festival ticket. Tour places are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so book early to avoid disappointment!
Onsite camping will be available from Thursday until Sunday, including toilet/shower facilities, a secure bike park and safety deposit boxes. Camping costs £15 per person for the weekend and must be pre-booked.
