Nick Hartland, director of the National Motorcycle Museum, commented: “The museum has seen huge investment and developments over the years which have transformed the venue significantly and enhanced our M&E facilities and current portfolio. The infrastructure improvements set to come about through HS2 will further grow our catchment and appeal to event organisers and delegates across the UK, and hopefully lead to an even more successful 30 years.”
