PEOPLE will be able to get back on the buses at Wythall Transport Museum after the venue’s bosses announced its reopening dates for 2021.
Following the Prime Minister’s road map announcement last week, the popular attraction will be back on May 22 and will also be opening on Sundays from July 25 and Wednesdays from July 28.
An event has been planned for the spring bank holiday weekend – May 30 and 31 – with visiting buses and sales stands.
The museum’s chairman Dave Taylor said: “At last we can ‘start our engines’ once again and get back to near normality, welcoming both staunch supporters and new faces looking for fresh air and freedom in an enjoyable day out with the family.
“The whole team is ready to go with several new vehicles joining our running fleet over the ensuing weeks.”
TMW is also planning a ‘Bus Boot Fair’ in May, preceding the official opening day. It will take place in the open air to comply with Covid restrictions and offer a variety of items for sale, including classic bus components, memorabilia, books, models and even items of uniform.
The date will be announced on the website as soon as possible, along with a list of some of the items available for sale.
The museum has also revealed it has been given planning permission to extend its Scania Hall, giving a more spacious layout for the vehicles on display.
