I see from the events list that Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge have a collectors fair taking place this Sunday (19th November 2017) 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, and takes place at the museum located at Shenstone Drive, Aldridge WS9 8TP- just off Northgate. Calll 01922 454761.

The Museum posted the following on their Facebook page:

The last Museum event of the year, a collectors’ fair with the transport enthusiast in mind. Lots of models, books, photographs and memorabilia to do with buses and other forms of transport. Message us if you’d like a stall, too!

We’ve got loads of tables worth of goodies!

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,

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. Check the event Facebook page for timetables of services and the latest news.

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.

Why not check out the museum website or their Facebook group?
