Rugby town centre roared with the sound of motorbikes and music on Sunday.

The Rugby Bike Fest was organised by Rugby First and the borough council, in conjunction with local motorcycling groups, businesses and St Andrew’s church.

The free family festival included a ‘ride-in’, displays of vintage and modern bikes, stalls, children’s activities, live music and food in the town centre.

St Andrew’s church, in association with the Christian Motorcycle Association and the Air Cadets, ran a helmet park in the church.

Aftab Gaffar, managing director of Rugby First, said: “I am absolutely delighted with how the Rugby Bikefest went.

“The town was extremely busy and there was a great atmosphere with a real mixture of people enjoying the various attractions and activities throughout the day.
