Basingstoke Festival of Transport

Always a great day out for all the family, whether you're a keen motor buff or you just want an interesting and enjoyable Sunday.

Basingstoke Deane Rotary have been running this event for the past few years, having taken over from the Thornycroft Society.

We do hope that you enjoyed this year’s event held on Sunday 19th May and wasn’t the weather good?

We will advise the date of next year’s event once its available and bookings will open for registration early in 2025.

As in previous years, there will be a huge range of vehicles on static display, including classic, vintage, commercial, fire engines and military trucks. There will also be a variety of specialist car clubs, trade stalls and catering outlets.

Please enjoy our selection of photos from this year’s event. Special thanks to Dmitry Gramoteyev for the aerial photos and for everyone else who gave permission to use their photographs.


If you are interested in volunteering on the day we  have many jobs  to suit everyone – please do get in touch.

Every year we look for young people ideally aged 16-17 to send on this amazing leadership course run by Rotary which is not only fun but teaches many skills. Its normally in the summer but its never too early to express an interest.


We recently helped St Michael's Hospice with volunteer support for their Summer memories event
