Changes to vehicle entry system


As we now have a smaller venue for the event the following changes for vehicle entries are necessary to ensure that we do not have more vehicles on site than there is space for:

  • Regrettably we are unable to accept entries for any vehicle that is not a bus or coach.

  • All vehicles must be entered in advance of the event and by the closing date for entries.

  • No on the day entries or un-entered vehicles will be accepted on the day as it is unlikely there will be space for them on site.

  • As has always been the case, entries will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

  • To give as many people as possible the opportunity to enter a vehicle to the event there is a limit of a maximum of three vehicles that any person / group / depot can enter to the event.

  • If you have multiple vehicles but only intend to bring one of the buses from your collection, please only book space for the one vehicle. If you are unsure what vehicle you are bringing simply type 'TBC' in the relevant fields on the entry form and email us with the vehicle details when you know which one you are bringing.

  • When the entry limit is reached a message will be put on this page and a reserve entry list will be opened. Should an existing entrant withdraw their entry then their place will be offered to the next vehicle on the reserve entry list.


Entry forms for the 2024 event will appear here in early March 2024.


If you have entered a vehicle exhibit or sales stand to the event in the last five years you will automatically be sent an email with event details and an entry form link in early March 2024, if we have a valid current email address for you.


If you haven't previously provided us with an email address please come back here in or after March and enter your vehicle exhibit or sales stand using the online entry form.


If you would like to be added to the entry form email mailing list please Contact us with your email address.


If your email address has changed since you last entered the event please Contact us with your new email address. We can then amend your email address accordingly to ensure that you receive an email with event details and an entry form link for the next event.
