If you’re interested in buses and coaches, and other transport, you’re sure to find something to interest you. And, of course, we’ll be selling all sorts of bits and pieces too, from a stall and in our shop.

Feeder buses from Walsall from 10.20, then half hourly until 16.20. If you’re coming by car, car parking will be very limited near the Museum, but a dedicated Park and Ride service from the Community Centre cap park is planned.

There’s a free half-hourly bus service to get you there from Hatherton Road in Walsall starting at 10:20am. 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.
