The Heritage Transport Show is aiming to host a record 800 vehicles and 120 buses at the Show on Saturday 7th April 2018. Working in partnership with The South East Bus Festival, and being held at the Kent Showground, the Show is hoping to build on the 700 vehicles and 100 buses that attended last year.

The Heritage Transport Show is a celebration of heritage and vintage vehicles, including cars, buses, motorbikes, steam and tractors. The Show is aiming to become one of the biggest heritage and vintage vehicle event in the South East. For those who wish to exhibit their vehicle, attend with their club or trade at the Show, application forms are available on the event website and close on Friday 9th March 2018.

With vehicle exhibitors already confirming their attendance at the Show, Heritage Committee Chairman Steve Pike said “We are planning to make the 2018 Heritage Transport Show bigger and better than ever before. In previous years, we have had vehicles manufactured as far back as 1922 and this has given visitors a real sense of how much motoring and travel has developed over the years. By growing the Show, we hope to provide a more immersive experience of how far transport has changed in the last 100 years.”

For the 9th year running, The Heritage Transport Show is working in partnership with The South East Bus Festival. The Festival will be showcasing a vast collection of vintage and modern buses and will feature a variety of guest speakers, trade stands and free rides around the showground in some of the vintage buses.

The Show will also be hosting a Farmers Market with stands selling a range of Kent produced food and drink, as well as a collection of trade stands and autojumble.

Tickets for The Heritage Transport Show are £7 when bought in advance or £10 if bought on the gate. Children under 14 are free of charge.

Visitor parking is free and there will be a variety of catering stands to choose from for food and drink.
