Events for your diary

Get on board for a trip down memory lane at our upcoming events.


Below you can see our events calendar – please click on each individual event for details such as the venue, date and time. Most notably, don’t miss out on our annual ‘Bus Rally & Railcar Weekend’ where a range of vehicles, old and new, will be on display for photograph opportunities and free rides!




This year, our event will run over two days, Saturday 18th May to Sunday 19th May, with the main bus rally taking place on the Saturday.


Join us at the Great Central Railway’s Quorn & Woodhouse station yard from 10:00-16:30 on both days for a great family day out!

Travel back in time with a variety of heritage and modern buses and coaches running free trips from the site on a variety of routes.

The Great Central Railway will also be running an intensive passenger service, using steam locomotives and diesel railcars, including Derby Lightweight “Iris”, Class 101 Metro-Cammell and the newly acquired more modern Class 153, not normally in passenger service.

Parking is available in the field adjacent to Quorn & Woodhouse Station (£5 per car).
