RVPT EVENTS 2022
Like many other organisations we were unable to hold our events in 2020 and 2021. Now that restrictions have been removed we will be running our two principal events – Morecambe and Lytham Hall.
Our Morecambe display and running day will take place on Sunday, May 22nd. (Please note that it is a week earlier than our usual Bank Holiday weekend). Once again this will be based at the Mazuma Stadium, Morecambe FC’s football ground which provides refreshments, toilets, meeting rooms and a display area for stalls. Our services will travel along the promenade at Morecambe but we will not be displaying buses on the area near to the Midland Hotel as we had done in previous years. Free bus services will operate on a frequent basis from the football ground to Happy Mount Park, Bare, Heysham Village and Carnforth.The first buses will depart Heysham and Carnforth at 09.40. Final services operate from 17.00 to 17.30.
We will have a variety of buses from our collection on display and in service; ages ranging from 1931 to 2004, subject to availability on the day. Over 40 guest buses will attend, some of them being used in service.
If you plan to visit the event by car please note that there is no parking at or near the football ground so a better option is to park elsewhere and travel to the ground on our services. There is free parking along the promenade and you can pick up our buses at Happy Mount Park if you travel to the east end of the prom. There is a large car park close to HMP. There is also a pay car park at Heysham Village very close to our bus stop. Stagecoach buses operate along the promenade and Morecambe bus station is a short walk from our bus stops near the Winter Gardens.
Full details of our services are available in a souvenir programme which will be on sale on the day, price £5. We look forward to welcoming you.
Sunday July 17th is the date for Lytham Hall. As in previous years there will be. display of buses and coaches at the Hall and a free bus service will operate between the Hall and St Annes. Please note that this year our allocated space at the Hall has been reduced so we have to strictly control the number of buses attending. Unless attendance has been agreed in advance no buses will be permitted on site.
More details will be provided as we get nearer to the events so please check this page for updates as well as our Twitter account which can be accessed via the home page of this website.
