BusFest 2018


On May 13th May 2018 The West Riding Bus Group will held its third Bus Fest in the seaside town of Scarborough on the North Yorkshire Coast.

For 2018 we would like to issue a warm welcome to all former United vehicles to attend and help launch the restored United FHN923 the Bristol K5G recovery vehicle which was owned for many years by Scarborough resident and well known preservationist, The late Carlie Bullock.

We have also invited the East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club to attend with a large selection of classic cars to enhance this years running day.

?For one day only classic buses from a bygone age will come out of trtirement for one day and grace the seafront.

In 2017. approximately 20 buses from 1952 to the present day attended, some of which had been built locally in Scarborough by Plaxton’s.

We also had no less than 4 Open Tops which proved very popular along the sea front.

A Scarborough town circular tour was operated by a number of the visiting buses and included the return to Scarborough of an open-top Bristol VRT which last ran in the town in 1997.

All profits from the event will goto the RNLI which received £600 from last years event.
