About  Buses Festival

The 2020 Buses Festival on 23 August will now be a live virtual event tailored to the special circumstances of these unusual times.

We hoped that this seventh Buses Festival could once again be held at the British Motor Museum, with visitor access to a large display of classic and modern buses and coaches, opportunities to ride on some of the vehicles and indoor and outdoor sales stalls. With so many bus events already cancelled this year, we are keen that there should still be a Buses Festival this year. However, the continuing pandemic and the strong likelihood that social distancing restrictions will remain in place throughout the summer mean that it must follow a different format.

We are developing exciting plans to bring classic and modern vehicles and some of their owners to you this year, for you to enjoy online from the safety of your home and will also have more news to share with you about other ways you can participate in awards to be announced.
