GVVT Annual Open Weekend

About GVVT Annual Open Weekend

The Glasgow Vintage Vehicle Trust is delighted to confirm that our Annual Open Weekend will be held on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October 2019 from 10am till 5pm each day.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds of yesteryear with our free vintage bus service to and from the City Centre and the Riverside Museum. The frequent service will use a selection of historic buses from the GVVT collection together with a number of visiting vehicles. The service will operate to a timetable which will be posted on the website in the near future.

Inside the garage, we’ll have a fine display of buses, commercial vehicles and fire engines again many visiting the garage from elsewhere. We will also have a number of modern buses from today’s operators which will let visitors contrast buses of today with their predecessors from the 20th Century. The vehicle displays also give the visitor insight into all stages of vehicle restoration, from rusting hulks, to preservation in progress and finally to the restored vehicle.

Other popular activities will be running:

We will have a large number of stalls selling souvenirs, books, models, photos and autojumble.

There will be an exhibition of artefacts from the GVVT Archive.

The Model Bus Federation will be bringing their dioramas showing their models in a range of street scenes.

Finally, and not to be forgotten, the Clippie’s Café will be opening serving refreshments and light snacks (including lots of homebaking!)

Entrance to Bridgeton Bus Garage will be via our Broad Street door. Here visitors will be met by one of our GVVT Volunteers

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for GVVT Annual Open Weekend are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
