Bike Shed Festival

In 2019 we hosted the first ever Bike Shed Festival – a long-awaited, and much-requested event that celebrates modern & retro motorcycles on the move; on track and on the dirt, with the same level of quality, inclusiveness and high-level hospitality as we deliver every year at Tobacco Dock during our Bike Shed London event. ... As fussy Londoners who own and run the Bike Shed's restaurant, you know we only bring the best food vendors and suppliers to all our events!


in 2018 year we also tested the idea with a single-day, single race event, The Cafe Racer Cup, and it was one of the best days of our year.


Bike Shed Fest 2021 will be a laid-back celebration of moto-people and moto-culture with great hospitality, entertainment, and experience with loads to do, shop for, drink and eat, held over the last decent weekend of the year, with camping, glamping or easy day-access from London, just 90 minutes back up the A2. We're expected a decent crowd to watch the have-a-go heroes on track and in the dirt, as well as journalists and celebrities doing their best to impress, all set in the stunning Kent Countryside, down the A2 and just 30 minutes beyond Brands Hatch.

For riders on track, this is a chance to have fast, safe fun on your bike without the pressure of a full-on track-day, where the racing is about having fun before earning podium glory. Riders will also be split into groups according to transponder lap-times during practice. It's also a chance to show-off in front of the wife/husband and kids, your mates, and a whole crowd of well-wishers who don't even know you. Spectators can enjoy close-up and informal access to the pits, rider and bikes and great views on track from two large grandstands and hundreds of deckchairs that we'll be hauling to the venue from Tobacco Dock.

Enjoy The Cafe Racer Cup, Street Cup, Easy Rider Cup, Retro-Racer Cup, Dirtbike Cup, L-Plate Cup , The Malle Trials and much more...
