North East Festival of Transport

A new festival celebrating the North East's transport heritage.

Being spearheaded by groups including the North East Bus Preservation Trust and Sunderland and District Classic Vehicle Society with support by Sunderland City Council, the event is set to bring together vintage buses, traction engines and commercial vehicles, classic cars and motorbikes at a prime location on Sunderland's award winning sea front.

The event is aiming to fulfil a long held wish of transport enthusiasts in the region to create a major showcase event, similar to those held in some other part of the country. The weekend of July 29 and 30 has been chosen for the inaugural festival.

Interest among vintage vehicle owners is already high with hundreds of vehicles expected on the large and easily accessible show fields, within sight of Sunderland’s Blue Flag award winning beaches.
