The Margate Meltdown is back this Bank Holiday Monday (May 29) for its 13th annual visit to the town and celebrating the 85th anniversary of Ace Café which organises the ride out.

Margate seafront and harbour is given over for the day to motorcycles and scooters, and 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 Royal British Legion Riders Branch (RBL RB) is the chosen charity for the event. Riders will leave Ace Cafe at 10.30am and travel on the A406 – A13 – M25 – A2 – M2 – A299 to Margate seafront

The Margate Meltdown is a free to attend event held annually on Spring Bank Holiday Monday.

Last year the Meltdown was on, and then off, unofficially on -and then ordered to be off – due to an issue over road closures. In the end bikers still came in their droves for the annual run.
