BRIGG BIKE NIGHT 2019 PREVIEW - WHAT'S ON, WHERE & WHEN
Brigg Bike Night 2019 on Friday, July 5 is expected to attract 1,000 to 1,500 people - motorcyclists, bike fans and interested spectators.
The event is sited on Bridge Street - postcode DN20 8NS for sat nav users - and will run from 5pm until late.
We hope to see you there on Friday!
The Yarborough Hunt pub is central to the event, whose organiser, Lucy Fensome, is the landlady.
The pub's inside bar will be supplemented by a pop-up version at the side of the premises.
Snacks and ice cream will be available from mobile vendors parked near Bridge Street.
Live music at the Yarborough Hunt will come from The Band of Fiends who play classy bluesy, rocky pop from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
Bikers will be directed to parking spaces on/near Bridge Street on Friday evening.
Those spectators arriving by car are advised to use the town's main Old Courts Road car park, off the A18, and then cover the short distance through the Market Place and over the County Bridge to reach the venue. The car park's postcode is DN20 8EX.
There is also a smaller car park at the Angel, off Bigby Street and Elwes Street, DN20 8LB, which is even closer to the Bike Night venue.
Hornsbys No 4 and X4 buses are available to bring people into Brigg Bike Night from Scunthorpe and Ashby and take them home again after the event. The No 4 service runs via Broughton.
Many people who visit Bike Night later go on to make a night of it by calling in at fast food outlets and/or pubs within the town centre on their way home.
With so many people attracted into Brigg, this very popular event always generates plenty of trade.
Very recently the town's first specialist pizzeria, run by the Yellowbelly Pizza Company, opened in the Market Place. View details here...
In recent years some bikers have chosen to end the evening at the Woolpack, in the Market Place, DN20 8HA.
Every Friday is runs a disco from 8pm until late, with a DJ playing requests.
Those people visiting Bike Night 2019 in Bridge Street should note that the Nelthorpe Arms closed as a pub in May 2018 and has since been converted to residential use.
The White Hart, also on Bridge Street and beside the Old River Ancholme, has now been closed for many months.
Both their beer gardens proved popular with Bike Night visitors in past years.
However, this Friday, the Yarborough Hunt will be the only licensed hostelry on Bridge Street that's open for business.
