BUSES Festival returns in 2023

 

The festival, which is organised in conjunction with the BUSES Magazine team will feature a display of up to 100 vintage, restored and modern buses and coaches as well as free bus rides from some of the vehicles in attendance and a variety of 'bus' themed traders.

Our venue which is Sywell Aerodrome, set in the heart of Northamptonshire, dates back to 1928 and is a wonderful Art Deco style event venue.  Sywell’s rich aviation history is still evident around the Aerodrome and displayed within the Sywell Aviation Museum, which is located onsite.
