EVENT DAYS IN 2016

display hall

All event days feature classic bus rides and usually we have visiting vehicles and additional sales stands selling memorabilia, models and photographs.

Of particular appeal to families is the delightful 'ride-on' miniature steam railway, constructed and operated by the Elmdon Model Engineering Society, demonstrating the finest examples of model engineering on three track gauges.

Details of classic bus times and the 750 service from Birmingham are available by clicking here.

Please note that heritage buses were not designed to be disability accessible, wherever possible our staff will provide advice and assistance.

Visiting buses are warmly welcomed but note that our insurance requires them to be entered in advance.

On Event Days, we are open from 10:30am to 5:00pm (last admissions 4:30pm)
