Readers will be familiar with the somewhat protracted story of Aston Manor Road Transport Museum, and it’s move to Aldridge last year. Sadly, things didn’t quite go to plan at Beecham Business Park, and the museum had to move again – but the good news is, it’s still in Aldridge, at Shenstone Drive.
This Sunday, 17th March 2012, the museum will be holding a ‘Museum Re-Awakening’ event, where the general public can pop in, explore, take a ride on vintage busses, browse stalls of transport ephemera, have a shufty around and hopefully help shape this valuable collection’s future.
The people behind this museum really want to meet you, and hear what you have to say – the event runs from 10am to 5pm, is £5 for adults, £4 for kids or £15 for a family ticket. Vintage bus rides are free throughout the day.
There will be presentations about the museum at 12:00pm and 2:30pm.
This is sure to be a great event – please do pop along. The collection needs the support of the public to survive, and it really is a wonderful thing.
