Now in its eighth year, the Heritage Transport Show took place at the Kent Showground on Saturday (April 1, 2017). Around 500 contraptions including motorbikes, cars, tractors and commercials attended as well as buses and coaches, the latter under the auspices of the South East Bus Festival. As in previous years, a free service was provided around the site by around 30 vehicles with visitors able to use a number of bus stops specially provided. Organiser Amy Thomson said: “The Heritage Transport Show has been gaining in popularity over the past few years and has now established itself as an exciting, nostalgic and interesting day out.”
