Rev up for great prizes as motorcycle museum readies for opening

THE National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull in gearing up for re-opening to the public.

The museum, which hasn’t received any government support during the pandemic, has been helping to keep itself afloat through a series of Covid-19 appeal raffles, with every penny raised being used directly for the purpose of reopening the museum to visitors.

Restrictions permitting, the plan is to re-open the museum collection, shop and restaurant on Monday, May 17, 2021.

However a spokesperson said that, whilst the funds raised so far will allow the museum to reopen in a limited way the museum had still only raised just over half of its original £500,000 reopening target.

As from Monday, June 21, 2021, the plan ideal scenario would see the centre return to its normal seven day a week opening hours.

To facilitate this the centre is highlighting its ‘Museum Triumph over Adversity Recovery Appeal Raffle’.

There’s a top prize of a brand new 2021 Triumph Trident 660, donated by Triumph Motorcycles and some stunning classic Triumphs for second and third prizes – a 1978 Triumph Trident T160 750cc with low mileage and only one previous owner and a 1956 Triumph Tiger T100 500cc fresh from restoration in the museum’s workshop.

The prize draw for the ‘Triumph Over Adversity’ appeal raffle will take place on Friday, June 25 at The National Motorcycle Museum.

Tickets cost just £6 each and can be purchased online by visiting www.thenmm.co.uk
