More details from Showbus 2015 confirmed

Showbus 2015 is to have a number of themed displays relating to
Woburn Abbey Safari Park and the Tiger Country
More details from the 43rd Showbus event have very recently been published on the rally website. Although the change of venue from Duxford Imperial War Museum to Woburn Abbey was not taken lightly by a number of enthusiasts, there certainly is a lot on offer this year.

Let's start with admission; an adult entry on the gate is £12.50 (Provisional), compare that to the £17 or so sum at Duxford. This charge includes viewing Woburn Abbey grounds and gardens, with entrance to the house and safari park not included. The usual special entrance fares for drivers, couriers and others onboard rally entrants remains in place.

There are also a whole load of opportunities to ride on participating exhibits this year. The Deer Park Tour will offer scenic views across Woburn Abbey Garden and the deer park every ten minutes from midday until around 4pm. There will also be Woburn village tours approximately every thirty minutes in the afternoon. It is hoped Centrebus will be providing a service from Luton Station, with connections to the Airport, via the new Busway to Dunstable and on to Woburn - operating hourly from 08:30 to 10:30, then two hourly for the rest of the day. With a separate charge, double deck bus tours are likely to be provided in the afternoon around Woburn Abbey Safari Park. Also in the planning are trips into Milton Keynes to view the fully electric Wright Streetlites from the local Arriva fleet. Showbus also state "Pending a decision on the location of car parking a high frequency shuttle bus will operate between the Car Park and the Showbus display. After midday return to the Car Park will be via the Deer Park Tour service."

The entry list already has thirteen takers, including vehicles from locally based Spratts (Wrenningham) and Beestons (Hadleigh, Suffolk). More updates from this area will continue as and when possible, as we did last year.
