|MUSEUM RE-OPENING SUNDAY 1 AUGUST 2021
Update 8 June 2021 - The Museum is currently closed.
The Board has decided that the Museum will open to the public from Sunday 1 August, on Sundays only from 11 am to 4 pm (excluding Boxing Day) - we will follow any Government legislation / guidance in place at the time - please check again nearer the time if planning a visit.
Transport Festival Events
However, after much consideration and discussion, we have very reluctantly decided not to organise any further Transport Festival events, but we are looking towards smaller events at the Museum instead for the next season.
Concerns have been raised regarding the wisdom of expecting large numbers of people to cross Whisby Road safely and regularly all day, as traffic has become rather heavy and there are those drivers (not entrants!) who are very impatient as well as those who do not respect the speed limit. Not a safe mix at all.
We realise this will come as a big disappointment to very many, but sincerely hope you will totally understand why. Our last event was superb, and this is how we would like the event and the members who made it possible remembered. Our thanks are also extended to all our neighbours and local businesses for their generous support over the years, and not least, all the folk who made this possible. Many visitors and vehicle owners travelled considerable distances over the years to help the Society and be with us, and we are immensely grateful to all for the enthusiasm shown at these events.
We have not been in a position to deal with e-mails for some months, we hope to start addressing the backlog soon. Our apologies if we have not replied.
