Wirral Transport Show

Sunday 1st October 2023

As you may know, Wirral Transport Museum is a council owned building which between now and October is expected to pass to Big Heritage via an asset transfer. From 1st September the Museum building in Taylor Street will close to all volunteers for a proposed 6 week refurbishment. This will significantly affect the customary Bus & Tram Show scheduled for Sunday 1st October. A separate issue is that because of a health & safety backlog we will be unable to run trams, regardless of the museum status.

To ensure that we honour the date we have planned a different style of event for the date usually occupied by the Bus & Tram Show. Entitled Wirral Transport Show, the event will be centered on Pacific Road building on Shore Road, with additional vehicle displays at Taylor Street and Woodside. A free bus service will link the three sites at frequent intervals.

We ran a similar event in 2021 under the same title, with a handful of traders in the open at Taylor Street. There is an important difference this time as Pacific Road will provide under cover accommodation for our traders.

Hot & Cold drinks, sandwiches and cakes will be available provided by the 201 Bus Group.

East Lancashire Railway

The Wirral Transport Users Association has organised a train excursion on the heritage East Lancashire Railway on Saturday 9th September 2023. A coach will pick up from several points around wirral and will take you to the railway near Bury.
