On May 13th May 2018 The West Riding Bus Group will hold its third Bus Fest in the seaside town of Scarborough on the North Yorkshire Coast.
Open to the public 10am – 5pm – Programme of events and timetable for bus services – just £3.
Display of vintage buses, and coaches – trade stalls and food available.
Free bus services operating to Town Centre and marine Drive.
For 2018 we would like to issue a warm welcome to all former United vehicles to attend and help launch the restored United FHN923 the Bristol K5G recovery vehicle which was owned for many years by Scarborough resident and well known preservationist, The late Carlie Bullock.
We have also invited the East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club to attend with a large selection of classic cars to enhance this years running day.
For one day only classic buses from a bygone age will come out of retirement for one day and grace the seafront.
In 2017. approximately 20 buses from 1952 to the present day attended, some of which had been built locally in Scarborough by Plaxton’s.
We also had no less than 4 Open Tops which proved very popular along the sea front.
A Scarborough town circular tour was operated by a number of the visiting buses and included the return to Scarborough of an open-top Bristol VRT which last ran in the town in 1997.
Full details will be provided later
All profits from the event will go to the RNLI which received £600 from last years event.
