Basingstoke Festival of Transport.

Important Notice from the 

Thornycroft Society Ltd.


We have now transferred responsibility of the running of the Festival to The Basingstoke Deane Rotary Club and (BDBC).


After 26 years of managing the above festival in conjunction with Basingstoke and Dean Borough (BDBC),

along with help from Basingstoke Classic Car Club and latterly, Basingstoke Dean Rotary Club.

The Thornycroft Society Ltd, has now found that due to ageing Members and ill health, it is not possible to continue with the Management of the festival.


Thornycroft Society Members will be providing assistance to the Rotary Club so that the smooth transition

of responsibility can be achieved successfully.
