It’s been a while since we posted any updates, particularly about rallies. So it’s time to give you all an update.

Sadly we had to withdraw from South East Bus Festival due to personal circumstances, however, this event ended up being canceled due to flooding. We are really disappointed we had to withdraw however as the event got canceled anyway it seems we didn’t actually miss out.

Our first current confirmed event is Wythall Bus Fest at Gaydon. This takes place on Saturday 1st July. You can find out more about the event here. We look forward to showing GX06 DYW on the day and look forward to seeing you! If you are a member we will be contacting you throughout June to arrange for your free travel to/from the event.

Our second confirmed event takes place the very next day on Sunday 2nd July. This is Stroud Vintage Bus Show. An event that is local to us and one that has a close place in our hearts. We are extremely proud to confirm GX06 DYW will be in attendance as well as offering a FREE shuttle to/from Stroud on the day.

Below is our current route and timetable…

If you wish to join us you can do so for FREE. Simply click here to book your ticket. Tickets are free however we ask you to book in advance to ensure we have space. There is NO standing room and seats are reserved for ticket holders. Any excess seats will be allocated on the day to those that turn up however if we have no room then we have to leave you behind! So avoid disappointment and book in advance.

Yes, you’re probably thinking to yourself, I thought free travel was for members only? Well, you are correct however as this is a local event we’ve decided to open this up to everyone. Don’t expect this all the time!

The next event we had planned to attend was of course Alton Bus Rally. We attended last year with Bennett’s Coaches under National Express with our driver Josh Hambling. Sadly however Alton Bus Rally 2023 has been canceled. We’re all extremely disappointed however we hope the event will be back in 2024!

One that’s even surprised us, a decision has been made and we can now confirm we will be in attendance at Gloucestershire Vintage and Country Extravaganza. We will be at the event for the whole weekend as a static exhibit. However, we also hope to take part in some shuttles over the weekend Saturday the 5th and Sunday 6th. More details can be found on our events page.

The next event we may look a tad out of place. We’re booked to attend Cotswold Vintage Bus Rally. Yes, we know 17 years old isn’t exactly vintage. However, it’s another local one for us, taking place in Sow-on-the-wold. As per Stroud we also plan to offer a free service to/from the event on the day. Booking is taking place already and can be found here. The times published on the event page are subject to change. We will post an update nearer the time to confirm. We have offered to take part in some local shuttles and even offered to do a shuttle to Broadway GWsR. So watch this space.

That’s it for now for events, You can keep up to date on the events we hope to and will be attending by clicking here. Though there is nothing else planned yet.

Of course, all events are subject to change at the last minute. Sadly things like breakdowns are unplanned, though we hope that doesn’t happen. So please keep checking our events page and our social media. If you do book a ticket to travel with us please ensure you give us the correct contact details. We’ll use this on the day to inform you of any changes. Incorrect details may mean you get left behind as you won’t know!
