Heritage Motor Centre to host brand new "Best of British Transport Festival"

The Heritage Motor Centre is to host a brand new transport festival as part of the celebrations to mark the Centre’s 21st birthday. The ‘Best of British Transport Festival’ will take place on Sunday 25 May and feature something for everyone.

On display will be a variety of classic British vehicles from the emergency services including ambulances, fire and police vehicles. Visitors can watch a demonstration showing the power of the military vehicles, when armoured vehicles and small arms, will fire blank rounds and shells giving visitors an idea of the noise and shockwave they would expect to see from these weapons! For the classic enthusiasts there will be displays from a number of top British car clubs as well as individual classic car entries and a guest foreign section for foreign vehicles.

Children will have the chance to drive a mini-tank around a small area by the children’s play area. Other family entertainment will include a vintage penny arcade, bouncy castle and static falconry display allowing children to see the birds up close and have their photographs taken. In addition the HMC has a large outdoor adventure playground and off-road demonstration rides from the Land Rover Experience team.

For those that enjoy browsing for a bargain, the festival will host a small indoor Retro Collectors Fair. Visitors will be able to wander around and find an array of collectable toys, TV and film advertising, breweriana, kitchenalia, antiques and much more.

Tom Caren, Show Manager for the Heritage Motor Centre stated “This is the first time that we have held this show and we are delighted to be hosting a brand new classic car show as part of our milestone 21 years celebration. We hope visitors come along, enjoy the show and join in with our celebrations in what promises to be a great day out for all the family and all for the same price as a normal museum entry”.
