Motorbike and film enthusiasts will get a chance to see bikes ridden by Chris Pratt and David Beckham, amongst others, at this year's Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival

At this weekend's Donington Classic Motorcycle Festival, famous bikes witnessed on screen will make an appearance off-track, courtesy of Dick Shepherd Triumph Factory Motorcycle Museum.

The bikes in attendance will include the 2014 Triumph Bonneville ridden by David Beckham in the renowned documentary Into the Unknown, and the 2002 Triumph Bonneville used at the beginning of Terminator 3.

Festival attendees will also get to see the Triumph Bonneville Scrambler bike ridden by Chris Pratt in Jurassic World. This event marks the first public appearance of the bike, of which only three were made. One of the bikes belongs to Chris Pratt himself, another is private custody of Triumph, and the third was recently sold at auction.

The bikes, which also include the 2006 Bonneville used by Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 3, will be placed on display in the Paddock Suite to be viewed at any time during the weekend.

The event, which proves to be filled with some Hollywood glamour, runs from 7 - 9 August
