Heritage Transport Show


The Heritage Transport Show in partnership with the South East Bus Festival will return to the Kent Showground on 1st April 2023.

A celebration of vehicles through the ages, the Heritage Transport Show boasts over 1000 vintage and classic cars, motorbikes, tractors, military, steam and stationary engines as well as 100's of buses from across the South East and beyond.

Step back in time to discover the history of vehicles as you explore the unique exhibits on display, not forgetting to take a free ride on a vintage bus around the Showground. Packed with trade stands, autojumble, entertainment and delicious food and drink, the Heritage Transport Show is a great day out for vehicle enthusiasts of all ages.

Do you have a classic or vintage vehicle you'd like to exhibit? Vehicles manufactured before 1990 come for free with 1 complimentary passenger. To register your interest please go to www.kcas.org.uk/heritage-transport-show/exhibit
