Having had 4 successful  Vintage Bus Running Days & Displays in Taunton, we are organising another one for 2017!

The date is Sunday 14 May 2017.

Again we are fortunate in having the same town centre site, at Castle Green, and, with the full support of Buses of Somerset, the adjacent bus station.

We hope to follow our previous format with services to the adjacent towns of Wellington and Bishops Lydeard (for the West Somerset Railway) as well as trips out into the countryside.

Space for sales stalls will be available and there will be other attractions, including the Museum of Somerset, in the near vicinity – more about these to follow.

Downloads (all open as PDF format – requires ‘Acrobat Reader’ or similar –

Visiting bus owner letter and vehicle entry form

Stallholder booking form

(Please contact us at tauntonrunningday@yahoo.co.uk if you have any difficulty downloading / printing, and we can get a paper copy in the post.)

Many thanks to everyone who came to the 2016 event – our biggest yet. 

Especially to the vehicle owners who make it happen.
