Wolverhampton Transport Festival

Discover the rich history of Wolverhampton’s motoring past with the Wolverhampton Transport Festival, a free showcase of locally-manufactured cars, motorbikes, buses and bicycles, as well as displays and videos on the companies that built them…

We need YOU!

We are currently looking for the following groups of people to help us with the first annual Wolverhampton Transport Festival:

  • Owners of vehicles or bicycles with a strong connection to the City of Wolverhampton  – This can include vehicles manufactured in Wolverhampton, those that were part-manufactured (i.e. the engine was made in Wolverhampton), or those with some other form of strong connection (for example, an attendee is bringing a  vintage car that served as a Wolverhampton ARP warden’s vehicle in WW2). 

  • Vintage transport-related groups – The event will feature an interior display, and as part of this we are asking local groups if they would like a stall to promote the work that they do.

  • Volunteers / marshalls – We need people with experience of marshalling events who can help out on the day, especially with regards to setting up / closing the event.

  • Sponsors – The event is expensive to organise, and we are looking to work in conjuction with local firms to celebrate the city’s history.

If you are interested in helping in any of the above capacities, please email

If you are planning on attending with a vehicle, please use the contact form directly below.

    What You Need to Know

    What will be at the Wolverhampton Transport Festival?

    Cars, buses, bicycles, vans, motorbikes and more, all with a connection to Wolverhampton and celebrating the city's rich motoring heritage. There will also be an interior display of the great marques that made the city their home and stalls for local motoring groups to exhibit at and attract new members. In addition, we will have a miniature railway from Wolverhampton and District Model Engineering Society and a vintage Guy Motors bus offering return journeys to the site of the former factory in Fallings Park.

    What facilities will be on offer?

    We will have a number of portaloos on site, and several catering options. All of this will be surrounded by Bantock House Museum and Park, which will remain open to visitors.

    How much does this event cost?

    The event is free at the point of entry, although the miniature railway and Guy bus may charge a small fee to cover their running costs.

    What time is the Wolverhampton Transport Festival and where is it?

    The event is at Bantock House Museum and Park in Wolverhampton, and runs between 10:00 - 17:00. Exhibitors will be able to set up / decamp outside of these hours. A map of the location can be found directly below.
