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.

2018 Buses Festival Video

We take a look back at all of the action from the 2018 Buses Festival.

Daimler CRC6 Video Tour

In 1968 Daimler was looking for a UK operator to try out the massive CRC6-36 chassis, prior to shipping 16 to South Africa. Walsall Corporation Transport's General Manager, Ronald Edgley Cox, was eager to innovate and ensured a Walsall bus was always exhibited at the Commercial Motor Show.

1950 Guy Arab IV Video Tour

The chassis of this bus was one of the first batch of 100 'Arab' Mk IVs built at Guy Motor's Fallings Park factory in Wolverhampton and the body was constructed and fitted at MCCW's Marstone Green factory, Bickenhill Lane, Birmingham.
