I see from the events list that Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge have a collectors fair taking place this Sunday (20th November 2016) from 10:00am until 4:00pm, and should be just the thing for auto buffs, transport enthusiasts and petrol heads of all types.
There are stalls booked with books, memorabilia, collectorama and all sorts of transport stuff available, so there will be something for everyone.
The Museum posted the following on their Facebook page:
We’ve got around 40 tables worth of goodies but in particular we expect Julian Bowden who should have his vast stock of West Midlands photos available – he’s just rung by coincidence to confirm! Then there’s Bus & Coach Preservation with stock old and new. More posts to follow with more news to entice you along – normal admission prices as well.
Even if its cold and wet on the day, there will be hot food and drinks available and there will be some parts of the building that will actually be warm! So don’t let anything deter you, there will be a super selection of goods for you, we now have DVD’s from Busflix just added to that selection. Do take advantage of the free bus service, car parking spots always at a bit of a premium around Shenstone Drive, although we always cater for those who find walking not as easy as it used to be with some spaces available on the museum site.
There’s a free half-hourly bus service to get you there from Hatherton Road in Walsall starting at 10:20am, and normal museum entrance fees apply.
While you’re there, you can check out all the great stuff in the collection, and talk to the volunteers, who’re doing a fine job.
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.
