The British Commercial Vehicle Museum in Leyland are hosting a Spring Transport Show on Sunday 16th April at 10am. The event is free to display your car but you need to register beforehand. I have attached  a link so that you can complete it online if you prefer:-       As well as it being free to display your car, the Museum is offering a discounted entry to the Museum of £6.00 each for the driver and one passenger. There is also a Café on-site that you can access without paying the Museum entry fee. On arrival on the day, please register at reception. If you apply to attend, please also let me know so that I have an idea of numbers attending. The Museum always puts on a good event, so this should be a really good day out.

If you are considering displaying a vehicle, please be advised that you must register and pre-purchase your ticket by telephoning 01260 223440 (daily 9am to 9 pm). Entries are on a first come and first served basis with tickets posted out by Royal Mail.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Classic, which is aimed at pre-1980 vehicles (with more recent machines complementing the ethos of the events by invitation). The show takes the form of a static dosplay and informal concours. Gates open at 8.00 am with the majority of vehicles on show by mid morning.

The Youngtimer celebrates more recent classics from 1970 to 2000 with later vehicles by invitation. The event again takes the form of a static display and informal concours. Gates open 9.00 am with the majority of vehicles on display by late morning. Tremendous interest is building in this era and it's a wonderful opportunity to transport back to your youth.

I do hope to see you and remember to pre purchase your display ticket (priced at £5 per person) by telephoning 01260 223440 - best wishes Rupert Richards
