Bespoked - The UK Handmade Bicycle Show - A Celebration of Handmade Bicycles & Those Who Make Them
The UK Handmade Bicycle Show - Bespoked 2020 hasn’t been able to happen, but that hasn’t stopped the magic happening in the workshops! Starting Tuesday 14th July, the world's best framebuilders showing at Bespoked #10 will be taking over our Instagram feed to show you what they’ve been conjuring up. As well as posting stunning photos of their beautiful creations, you’ll meet the makers in their workshops to see where the alchemy happens. You’ll be able ask questions directly, and remember, if you like what you see, it’s placing an order that will give you the bike of your dreams and keep the makers making! @bespokedUK
2021 will mark the 10th anniversary of Bespoked and we're pulling out all the stops to celebrate a decade of gathering the world's best handcrafted bicycles and their makers together under one roof.
At Bespoked most of the bikes on show will have been commissioned by individuals, and are the result of a partnership between customer and maker. Many bikes on show will be previously unseen – Bespoked is the highlight in the framebuilders’ calendar and they all work hard to bring something special to the show.
As well as classically beautiful bikes built for the road, track, mountains and town, you can expect to see the unexpected: from ground breaking design to alternative visions from people who think outside the box.
There will also be handmade cycling accessories, components, apparel, footwear, art and literature on show and an exciting program of talks and events are being planned to celebrate the tenth edition of Bespoked.
BESPOKED #10 POSTPONED TO SPRING 2021
It is with regret and a heavy heart that we have to announce the second postponement of Bespoked #10. Due the continuing uncertainty regarding Covid-19 and exposure to people visiting large scale events, we are unhappy to risk the safety of our visitors and exhibitors in promoting and holding a show this October.
We have also received the following statement from Bristol City Council this week, informing us that it is ‘very unlikely the venue (Brunel’s Old Station/Passenger Shed) will reopen for business’.
We have spoken with our exhibitors, who, while being disappointed that the show won’t happen this year, fully support the decision to postpone until 2021.
We are looking at alternative venues for Spring 2021 and hope to have a venue and dates secured in the coming weeks. We will announce as soon as it has been confirmed where and when the long awaited Bespoked #10 will happen.
We hope that in making an early call on postponing the show that we can limit the financial impact this has for all concerned. We recognise that many people have already rearranged travel and accommodation plans and for this we apologise.
Bespoked is a celebration of the global cycling community and for us to happily and safely mark a decade of gathering the world's best handcrafted bicycles and their makers together under one roof, we need to ensure it will happen in a way we can all look forwards to and be excited about.
Ticket sales are now paused until we have the new date and venue confirmed.
If you have already bought an entry ticket you will be refunded or if you know you will come to Bespoked regardless of date or location (thank you!) your entry ticket will be carried forward to the new date and venue. Our ticket agent will be in touch with you soon or click/call below if you would like to contact them directly.
