Coronavirus: Many more events cancelled

With the country placed in effective lockdown to combat coronavirus, more planned bus events have been cancelled and we must expect the vast majority of those intended to happen in the spring will not now take place.


Now added to those being cancelled are the Oxford Bus Museum’s twilight running event on 28 March, the Manchester Museum of Transport Spring Spectacular on 28/29 March, the Wythall Transport Museum’s Easter Riding Days on 12/13 April, the Penzance Bus Rally on 19 April, the Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancashire open day at Carlisle on 23 May, the Bournemouth Bus Rally on 7 June and the Barry Festival of Transport on 14 June.


Wythall is postponing the start of its 2020 season until at least the end of April, which means that none of its facilities and services (including vehicle hires) will be available before May at the earliest. It will decide on what happens from May onwards once the medical situation becomes clearer.


The Scottish Vintage Bus Museum advises that it is closed to the public until further notice but that its members will have access to work on vehicles behind the scenes.


The Manchester Museum of Transport will be open to the public at normal times. It is inviting supporters to make donations to help make up for the loss of income that would have come from visitors on events days.
