New 2023 bus rally and running day to end season in style at Statfold

Statfold Country Park, near Tamworth, famous for its world-renowned narrow gauge railway museum and running lines, is branching out into the world of buses.

In partnership with Transport Museum Wythall, the all-new STATBUS rally and running day will be held on Sunday, September 24th, making it the go-to Autumn bus festival and ending a busy rally season in style.

STATBUS will bring together a wide range of modern and vintage buses and coaches from across the country in themed and uncluttered displays, also offering rides into the Staffordshire countryside plus a regular shuttle service for visitors to the show from Tamworth station.

Statfold’s wide open spaces have plenty of hard standing for bus displays ensuring good visibility for photographers. There will be abundant trade stands to tempt your wallet, all under cover.

Transport Museum Wythall already has a number of vehicles from its collection on display at Statfold Transport Museum alongside the heavy and light commercial vehicle collection.

Visitors will have full access to the railway museum with more than 20 working locomotives on display, rides on the new Mease Valley Light Railway to the woodland trail, along with rides on the established railways and tramway.

And there’s plenty for the family in Toby’s Barn soft play area, Toby’s Dig It and Strawberry Play Park.

Owners and operators of modern and heritage vehicles are welcome to attend the show where you can display your vehicle and if you wish, choose to run on the regular service on the road.

Please visit for more information and to book your display space.  Note that entry to the event for visiting vehicles will be free for the driver and two additional passengers.

The event will be open from 10am to 4pm and ticket prices will start at £13.95 for adults and £11.95 for children, with concession and family tickets also available.
