Wall of Death

Messhams Wall of Death presents and operates Europe’s oldest motorcycle stunt show and is coming to the Classic

For over 80 years the Messham family, now in its fifth generation, have established and upheld an international reputation for excellence of performance and presentation of this unique and thrilling entertainment: The Wall of Death; made a welcome return to the Silverstone Classic this summer*.

“The smallest and steepest race track in the world.”

Performances started each day of the event at 11am and a visit to the Wall of Death fulfilled the need for excitement and satisfy a lust for danger. The spectacle of ever present danger, bravado coupled with the inevitable anticipation that something may go wrong as the artists cling to their machines, steering them with their feet, sitting sideways, backwards and forwards breaking down the forces of gravity.

The Show is suitable for the whole family; a show for the young and old that never fails to please. "An education for young children."

Visiting the show is stepping back in time, an encounter with days gone by as their artists challenge the laws of gravity, tempting mortality and invading all your senses, sight, sound, taste, smell and motion.

*While the majority of the entertainments at the Classic are included in the ticket price, the Wall of Death was an additional extra and cost £4 for adults and £2 for children.
