A popular motorcycling festival returns this weekend as bikers takeover a town high street for the sixth time.

Brackley Festival of Motorcycling will see the high street turned into a motorcycle performance arena on Sunday to raise thousands of pounds for charity.

There will also be a display bike paddock, custom bike shows and bike manufacturer stalls around the town.

The event has supported Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance for a number of years but this year money raised from ticket sales will also help Brackley Food Bank and The Bike Experience.

Food bank aims to provide a three-day supply of food to people who have to face a sudden crisis in their lives and The Bike Experience is a charity that teaches motorcyclists who have been disabled how they can ride again.

Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attend on average four missions every single day, from road traffic collisions to house fires, fallen horse riders or industrial accidents.

Pothole repair work has taken place with a high-tech infrared machine so bikes can arrive smoothly.

Tickets cost £5 and the performances kick off at 10am.
