Our major event for 2020 will be The Original King Alfred Running Day on Sunday 3rd May. As well as free bus services over the King Alfred routes with former King Alfred vehicles, the event will feature many visiting vehicles and a Transport Bazaar at the Guildhall. Free vintage bus services will operate from approx. 09:00 until 17:00 whilst the Bazaar will be open from 10:00 until 16:00. Programme/timetables will be on sale in advance by post as well as at the Guildhall on the day of the event. Further details will appear on the website in due course.
May 2020 is also the centenary of the first King Alfred excursion, so keep an eye open for events to mark this anniversary!
Kent County show ground. Detling near Maidstone.
A King Alfred Vehicle will provide free rides within the site during the day.
We meet regularly to celebrate our work and to enjoy the vehicles we preserve. Our friendly group is always welcoming of new members and are always keen to share!
