Diary Dates: An exciting two months

One of First's heritage Routemasters will be operating shuttle buses
to the Royal Norfolk Show this year.
The next two months will bring out a good few local events which are sure to get the enthusiast's cameras clicking.

On Sunday 28th June, Patrick Burnside's preserved Bristol LL is celebrating it's 65th birthday with a one off road run retracing the old Eastern Counties service 15 from Norwich to Downham Market. Booking is essential, with contact details being found here.

On July 1st and July 2nd, it's the Royal Norfolk Show at the Norfolk Showground. The usual special bus services will be operating on both days. The show usually attracts hundreds of visiting coaches from the local area and further afield, which usually park up together on the grassed car park area sitting westwards next door to the Norfolk Showground. It is also confirmed that one of First's heritage Routemasters will be out on the day operating Norfolk Show shuttles. Details of Konectbus services can be found here and First services here.

On the weekend of the 4th and 5th of July, we have a special event duo! On both Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th, the North Norfolk Railway will be holding their Vintage Transport Festival. Among other vintage vehicles, there are set to be a number of preserved buses operating free rides along the North Norfolk Coast. 

On the same weekend, the East Anglia Transport Museum will be celebrating their 50th anniversary, which is sure to attract even more visiting vehicles than usual. Free bus rides will operate from the museum site to and from Beccles and Lowestoft across the weekend, with the usual park and ride service operating from Ashburnham Way Co-op.
