Buses Festival,  organised by the Buses magazine team (the world’s biggest-selling bus magazine) opened on Sunday 8th August at the East of England Arena.

The day featured a display of 80 vintage, restored and modern buses and coaches from up and down the UK. There were opportunities to take bus rides over local routes and stands selling models, collectables, photographs and lots more for visitors to browse.

Jason Lunn, venue director at the East of England Arena commented, “We have all taken a trip on a bus or coach at some time in the past, this is a great opportunity to relive some of those memories – commuter journeys, day trips and school outings, buses have been an intrinsic part of our lives. We were delighted to welcome this event to the venue.”
