Information

Norfolk TOMCC is one of the oldest branches in the Triumph Owners Club. There have been a long and distinguished list of past members who have seen enormous changes in technology and machinery. We have a healthy membership and an active program of events each year. Norfolk is a great place - a bit flat - and jolly big, which makes it difficult for some far flung members to come to regular club meetings. We reach out to those and encourage everyone to join in where possible and watch for ride outs and events which come near you. If you have ideas please get in touch with us.

We have evening meetings on the first and third Tuesday of each month at The Worlds End pub in Mulbarton. Meetings are social and informal and we welcome you to come and meet us.
We organise ride outs to various locations, we participate in local and national events, including overseas trips. Winter events include talks and presentations by guest speakers and ten pin bowling challenges.

 

Location

The World's End Public House, Norwich Road, Mulbarton, NR14 8JT - Meets: 1st & 3rd Tuesday monthly 8pm for 8.30pm
