The ‘Gaydon Festival of Transport’ returns to the British Motor Museum on Sunday 28 May. Now in its third year, the transport show will feature a range of motorised transport from cars through to Fire Tenders and Tanks along with plenty of family entertainment.
This exciting show aims to bring all classic vehicles together highlighting some of the best classics ever produced. Classic vehicles, from sports cars to emergency service vehicles are expected to take part in what is deemed to be a great family show and will include displays from the Standard Motor Club, Triumph TR Register and the local Military Vehicle Trust.
