The celebration of heritage cars and buses is returning next year

Applications to display your vintage car at the 2018 Heritage Transport Show are now open - and its organisers are aiming for a record 800 vehicles and 120 buses.

The celebration of heritage vehicles, from cars and buses to motorbikes and tractors, will be held on April 7 at the Kent Showground for the 9th year running.

In partnership with the South East Bus Festival, a vast collection of vintage and modern buses will also be on display, along with a farmers market, guest speakers, trade stands and free rides around the showground.

700 vehicles and 100 buses were on exhibition last year.

Heritage committee chairman Steve Pike said: “We are planning to make the 2018 Heritage Transport Show bigger and better than ever before. In previous years, we have had vehicles manufactured as far back as 1922 and this has given visitors a real sense of how much motoring and travel has developed over the years.”

Application forms are available at kentshowground.co.uk/heritage-transport-show/ and close on March 9. Tickets are £7 in advance or £10 on the gate.
