We are now less than 5 months away from the second British BMX Hall of Fame Banquet and Induction Ceremony and are looking forward to welcoming our guests to another amazing night of BMX history and nostalgia but more importantly the opportunity to meet up again with long lost friends and to celebrate and honour some of the incredible people who have made British BMX the great sport it is today.
As many of you will appreciate, a lot of planning and organising goes on behind the scenes to make this event happen. This involves the Organising Committee (Dale Holmes, Darren O’Neill, Daryl Gibbard and Mike Wong) liaising with the venue, caterers, vendors and partners/sponsors to make sure everything goes to plan on the night and everyone who attends has an unforgettable night, and the Selection Panel (led by Dale, Will Smyth/DIG BMX Magazine, Neil Waddington/Ride On BMX and everyone they consult with) to research the hundreds of worthy contenders for induction this year, before then whittling it down to a shortlist of 10 (which we have now started posting and are finding all of your various comments and suggestions really interesting).
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has bought their tickets already. We appreciate your continued support. However, we would like to reach out to everyone who has expressed an interest in this year’s event to please purchase their tickets as soon as possible. We have reduced attendance from last year to make the event more intimate and more manageable (as everyone involved in BBMXHOF are unpaid volunteers), but this means we have less tickets available for BBMXHOF 2023.
So if you attended, last year, had a great time and want to attend again, please buy your ticket(s) as soon as possible. If you bought/sponsored a table last year so you could be seated with a specific group of friends and want to do the same again this year, please get in touch ASAP so we can arrange that for you.
It’s worth reminding everyone (because the BMX rumour mill runs wild sometimes) that the British BMX Hall of Fame is not a money making venture for the organisers. Its purpose always has been and will be to commemorate and preserve the history of British BMX and to celebrate and honour those who have contributed to its rich fabric over the years. Hopefully, all of those who attended last year will confirm we delivered a great night which was value for money.
As such, we can’t stress enough we rely on the support of the British BMX public to help us create this event year on year. The easiest way to support BBMXHOF is to simply buy a ticket here: Tickets.
But if you also want to get more involved we also have a number of partner/sponsor packages available. Please contact any of Dale, Darren, Mike or Daryl to receive our partner/sponsor deck which sets out the various packages available.
Sorry for the longer than usual post, but we are putting our hearts and souls into this event, and wanted to remind everyone that the event is fast looming and tickets are limited.
Please help us spread the word of BBMXHOF.
