There's often somthing extra going on, whether it's a visiting car club, school holiday bus services or a full blown main event, you'll find out about it on this page.

Main event days

(shown in yellow heading below) feature lots of classic bus rides and usually we have visiting vehicles and additional sales stands selling memorabilia, models and photographs. Of particular appeal to families is the delightful 'ride-on' miniature steam railway, constructed and operated by the Elmdon Model Engineering Society, demonstrating the finest examples of model engineering on three track gauges.

On main event days, we are open from 10.30am to 5.00pm (October 27th 11am-7pm)

Details of classic bus times and the 750 service from Birmingham are available by clicking here.

Other days

(shown in green heading below) are days when we have a club visit or a school holiday opening. Some bus and train services may be running in addition to the cafe and shop being open, check the text for details. These days are not so busy as main event days, nevertheless excellent family days out
