1 Mins read

With the Vauxhall International NW 200 just days away, the line-up for the supporting Race Week Festival has been announced.

The family orientated festival, organised by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, begins on Sunday 7th May and runs until Saturday 13th with activities taking place all around the area. Speaking about the upcoming events, The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Maura Hickey said: “The NW 200 attracts upwards of 100,000 visitors, spectators and fans, and along with the road racing action, the Race Week Festival offers a packed programme of entertainment throughout the week. I would encourage everyone to take part in the festivities, and enjoy the unique atmosphere created by this world class event.” Now a time honoured tradition at the Race Week Festival, everyone is welcome to The Family Motor Fest on Wednesday 10th at East Strand Portrush.

Massive jumps, freestyle tricks and breath taking ‘drop offs’ will be performed by the fantastic Inch Perfect Trials Show who are performing at the festival for the first time. Further adrenaline filled stunts will be on display when Stannage International Stunt Show and the Vertical Trix Motorsport Stunt Display Team take to the stage with their act incorporating cars, bikes, wheelies and burn outs.

Alongside the show which is sponsored by Nutt Travel Coleraine, there will be food stalls and mini moto racing for children. Entertainment begins at 6.30pm and lasts until 8pm. The public will get a chance to ‘Meet the Riders’ on Friday 12th May in Coleraine Town centre from 2pm-4pm. Popular broadcaster Adrian Logan will be hosting a chat show with some of today’s top road racers, with fans getting the chance to take photographs and receive autographs during the free event. The popular outdoor concert and fireworks display at The Crescent in Portstewart takes place on Friday evening.

Featuring the legendary tribute band Con Jovi, it’s an event for all the family to enjoy. Entertainment will continue throughout the week with bike exhibitions, cavalcades and back -to-back activities at the hospitality marquee. With local DJ Brian Moore, hypnotist Adrian Knight and music by The Untouchables and Klass, the week is packed with variety.
