A Nottingham museum is preparing for Christmas in style, reports Nick Larkin

While most transport museums wind down for Christmas, one concern is holding two major events in the week up to the big day. Nottingham Heritage Vehicles Charity is organising free event days at its museum, the former Trent depot at Hucknall in Nottinghamshire, on Sunday 18 and Friday 23 December.

Attractions will include classic bus rides, vehicle displays, a site tour and shop, not forgetting home-made refreshments in a new café and an appearance by Santa. Spokesperson Simon Lowings explained: “After Covid-19 and everything we really wanted to celebrate the festive season this year. We’ve decorated the museum for Christmas and we want people to come along and haver a great time. Although these are festive events there’s plenty to enjoy if you’ve had enough of Christmas and want to get away from it!”
