INFORMATION


The British Commercial Vehicle Museum is planning a bumper programme of special events and attractions for its 2007 season.


The Museum is already well-established amongst the vehicle enthusiast community as a centre of excellence for the permanent display of vans, trucks and buses of exceptional historical importance. But these special events provide first rate opportunities for people - enthusiasts and the general public alike - to come to Leyland and see for themselves what is on offer.

Facilities are currently available for motor clubs to host rallies and events of a similar nature.

The Museum has extensive free car parking and an extensive outside exhibition area which is suitable for most major events.
Historically the Museum hosts three to four of these events per annum.
