With a magazine portfolio covering motorcycles, cars, steam, railways and more, our different titles have always been at the forefront of promoting hobbyist events.

And it’s not just free to browse events, there’s no charge to submit one either!
Don't Miss Out
Christmas draws near and this is the event to bring the year to an end in a happy way with opportunities to spend your money on transport memorabilia from books to models, photos to spare parts. Part of our collection of historic buses and coaches will again move to one side to make way for nearly a hundred stalls, stands and sellers offering everything from books about local transport to genuine historic bus ticket machines, and from photos of long-gone trams to real bus stops. An unusual shopping trip can be capped with a ride back in time, as a free heritage bus service using old double-deckers from the 1960s and 1970s will link the Museum with Manchester’s Victoria railway station throughout both days of the event.
Stepping back in time, ‘Vintage Christmas’ brings fantastic entertainment, an incredible festive market and historical education in a unique setting. Not only will you be entertained throughout, you can shop till you drop in our extensive vintage market for all those unique Christmas gifts that you won’t find anywhere on the high street. Learn more about what life was like at Christmas time from the 1920’s to the Post War era, with themed crafts and activities. There will also be living history reenactors around the Museum to help take you back in time. Don’t miss… Santa’s grotto (additional cost) and see him arrive by Tank on both days!
