The Heritage Transport Show celebrates ten years of the South East Bus Festival at the Show in 2020 with over 1000 vintage vehicles set to be on display.

The South East Bus Festival, part of the Heritage Transport Show, started in 2011 to mark the centenary of the formation of the Maidstone & District Bus Company and has been running ever since. Now entering it’s tenth year, the Festival will be marking the 50th anniversary of the formation of London Country Bus Services with over 150 modern and vintage buses expected to attend.

Joining the display of buses at the South East Bus Festival will be guest speakers, trade stands, and model displays. The M&D Staff Reunion Club will also be running the Reunion Tea Room. Rounding off the Festival will be the popular free vintage bus rides around the showground.

Organiser of the South East Bus Festival, Richard Lewis, said, “We’re delighted to be organising our tenth event in 2020. At present we have 26 vehicles entered into the Festival, eleven of which have not been to any of our previous events and we are expecting entries to start building momentum over the weeks ahead. This will be a fantastic day for visitors to see and ride on buses old and new.”

The South East Bus Festival is part of the Heritage Transport Show which displays a wide variety of vintage and classic vehicles. These include cars, tractors, motorcycles, commercial and military vehicles. The Show also hosts a Victorian fairground ride, the Headcorn Ukulele Group and a selection of trade stands.
