Tomorrow is the 18th Wirral Bus & Tram Show, this year it is on Sunday 4th October 2015, starting at 10 am and finishing at 4 pm.
The Wirral Bus & Tram Show is Wirral’s largest FREE family show and one of the biggest FREE transport shows in the North West. Taylor Street museum will have trade stands, stalls & show stands. Shore Road car park will have a fantastic array of preserved, restored and new buses. At Woodside Ferry, there will be displays of classic cars, military vehicles & motorcycles.
There will be a 4 car tram service operating throughout the day running from Taylor Street to Woodside and back via Egerton Bridge and Pacific Road. A small fare is charged on the tram service for the upkeep of the tramway infrastructure and vehicles. It is well worth the small charge for a trip to Woodside Ferry (were the Classic Car display will be held) and back to the Museum.
For the first time for those wanting more than one tram ride throughout the day, there will be an all day ticket available to purchase on the day priced at just £5.00.
Popular FREE excursions will continue to run to favourite places, such as New Brighton, West Kirby, Port Sunlight, Eastham Ferry and Moreton Shore, as well as a Mystery Tour. Times for these services will be included in the programme booklet on the day.
Due to the ever increasing popularity of the Wirral Bus & Tram Show and the amount of visiting Buses, cars and other transport related vehicles, a NEW 4th Showground has been made available for the display of visiting Buses. The NEW 4th Showground is the site of the former Woodside Railway Station, what is currently the Woodside Bus Layover at Woodside Ferry Terminal. This massive open dedicated space can accommodate a large number of vehicles and will be a great addition of valued show space to what is vast becoming the biggest annual show yet!
With thanks to Arriva North West, who will be showcasing 3 buses on the day, and to Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire who will be showcasing one of their brand new Stagecoach Gold buses.
See you there!
