Messy #5 is moving!!
Still planned for August 9th to 11th 2019 but will now be held at Lucarly's, Wilton Road, Cleethorpes. Our colleagues at Classic Scootering, ScooterEvents.co.uk and SIP are joining us again.
It promises to be bigger and better even than 2018. Already the gang has secured 6 live bands for you inclduing the Ex Kittens, Forever MOD, The Teenage Zombies, 2 Tone Ska men and Skaburst. In addition they are going to announce a major headline band in January 2019 so this will definitely be one not to miss out on.
So why has it moved? This is what Fostorian Alan Gibson had to say.
"After 4 fantastic years at Moortown we feel it's time for us to move on so we can give you a better rally experience. We would like to thank everyone at the Skipworth Arms for helping us to get where we are today. The new venue for MESSY 5 will be at LUCARLYS in Cleethorpes. Three great rooms for us to do our magic,one with a large stage,loads of camping area and outside area . There are no electric hook ups but motorhomes are welcome at no extra charge. We hope you have enjoyed the last 4 years with us and hope to see you on our new venture which will definitely be bigger and better than anything you have seen from us before.
SEE YA AT THE BAR.
F.O.S.TOURS SCOOTER ALLIANCE."
But let's get a few things straight.... This is NOT an alternative Cleethorpes Scooter Rally! This is just like all the other 'Messy' Rallies - a field scooter rally, where people come on their scooters and camp in a field. The difference is the field is on the outskirts of Cleethorpes, rather than being near Market Rasen. The old site has just become too small based on the numbers attending, so we have moved it to a bigger and better location offering more field scooter camping, more space and better facilities. You have no need to 'go into town' as all the entertainment is being hosted at the rally site, in two massive rooms of music with six live acts performing over two nights, as well as a host of DJ's laying down your usual scootering sounds.
The site is only about a third of a mile further from the Town centre than Meridian Point is, but why would you leave with what we have lined up for you? This rally we hope, will be held here for the foreseeable future, so we are not going anywhere any time soon...
There is secure scooter parking and there will be security staff on site all weekend. There will be a custom show, indoor bars, indoor entertainment and food including full english brealfast will be availabe as well as snacks and late night catering . While we would love to see on your scooters, we can accommodate campervans too, though no electric hook-ups or hairdryer points. (Or caravans!) On the plus side, toilets and showers will be open 24 hrs, and the local supermarket for food, booze and fuel is only a quarter of a mile from the site so no running out of supplies as you can literally walk there.
We have some scootering games planned for you too during the day Saturday. And your resident DJ's will keep you entertained in between bands with the usual scootering sounds.
Messy 5 is the same as it's always been, a good old down to earth field scooter rally, run by scooterists, for scooterists.
The event is ticket only and tickets go on sale January 2019. Early Bird tickets are just £15 each until the end of April 2019, £20 thereafter.
You will need to buy tickets before you get to the rally. One ticket, one price - well you know the score by now, the usual rules apply. Price is the same whether you are camping or not. They are limited to 600 so don't wait, buy one as soon as they come out....
We already have pre-orders for 200 tickets, so this is going to be a sell-out just like all our previous rallies; make sure you book your tickets in January when they come out.
We look forward to seeing you next August.
