An Evening With… Steve Parrish

16 May @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for an evening with Steve Parrish, motorcycle and truck racer, commentator and practical joker.

Get ready to be captivated by the incredible stories and experiences of the legendary Steve Parrish.

Steve Parrish, a former motorcycle racer and motorsport commentator, will share his thrilling adventures on the track, his encounters with iconic figures of the motorsport world, and his insights into the racing industry. As a charismatic personality, Steve’s anecdotes are bound to leave you entertained and inspired.

Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to meet Steve Parrish in person and enjoy an evening filled with laughter, adrenaline, and unforgettable memories.

Steve Parrish raced at the highest level of motorcycle racing, with his highest finish coming in the 1977 500cc Grand Prix season, as team mate to that year’s champion Barry Sheene. Barry, who met Steve in 1975, is quoted as saying “if he was to set up his bike as well as his victims and had put as much effort into the bike as he did the intricate pranks he pulled on people he would certainly have been a World Champion.”

Steve was the BBC commentator for Moto GP and also commentates coverage of the Isle of Man TT. He has been commentating since 1988, but he is equally famous in the world of
motorsport for his pranks including riding Barry Sheen’s bike to qualifying for the world champion, filling rooms of sports personalities with live frogs, and jumping hire cars from second floor car parks in Daytona onto the beach.

Your host, Paul Cowland, describes Steve as an “utter legend” who he can’t wait to interview; he’s lined up all of the pressing questions like “What actually happened to that toilet block in Finland?”!

Doors open at 6:30pm with the fun starting at 7pm. Drinks and light refreshments will be available on the night.
