Last updated 22 January 2021

This page lists events, rallies, museum open days and running days of interest to the classic bus enthusiast, although I don't always record auctions, sales, memorabilia fairs etc. Please let me know if you have any new entries or corrections. Look for the symbol for the latest additions. I've recently started showing the County at the end of each entry. This is by request of some of my readers who find it easier to scan the list and see what's happening in their particular area.

The livery on this page is a tribute to Surrey Motors. Aaaah - sadly missed.....

Please note that I cannot guarantee that any event listed above will actually take place - merely that it was intended to (I went to the Shoreham Bus Rally in 1998 without checking first and it had been cancelled - I should listen to my own advice! I also went to the White Waltham Air Display in 2000 and that had been cancelled as well - I obviously never learn!). I also don't guarantee the accuracy of the information, but I do my best....

Please send details of any suitable event that you know about, and I will list it.
