The Margate Meltdown is a free to attend event held annually on Spring Bank Holiday Monday.
This year, the 13th annual ‘Meltdown, celebrates the 85th anniversary of the Ace originally opening in 1938 and, as in years to date, it features a ride out from Ace Cafe London to the event in the popular seaside resort of Margate in Kent.
Margate seafront and harbour is given over for the day to motorcycles and scooters, and a myriad of diverse club and trade stands.
Live entertainment will be rocking the seafront from midday onwards with MC Bill Guntrip and the DJ’s Bill & George Guntrip, together with the three piece band “The Draglinks”, playing Rockin’ Blues , Rock’n’Roll and Rockabilly
The destination town of Margate has everything for a great day out; a beach and plenty of things to do and see. Its heritage of motorbikes, scooters and the Mods & Rockers that rode them there from the 1960s on is of world renown.
Buckets and spades are optional!
The Royal British Legion Riders Branch (RBL RB) is the chosen charity for the event.
Special thanks to Thanet District Council and the town for helping us deliver this unique day on the seafront!
