The Bantam Club has been contacted by the Committee of the Coleford Carnival of Transport to see if any of the Club members will be attending the show or would like to attend on Easter Monday 2019 which falls on 22 April this year, when the Town Centre is closed to allow vehicles of all periods and types to be displayed........ including Bantams !! I have already booked my ticket under the 'Group Section' and called it the BSA Bantam Club. Hopefully I won't be the only member there, so if you think you would also like to ride or take your bike along for the day then head off to the ** Please log in to view **. It will cost you the princely sum of £2.50 for the privilege and please let me know if you intend to turn up on the day for they are keen that 'Group Sections' should arrive en masse so the entrants can be grouped together since they cannot guarantee space allocation and there is no reserving of space. Hope that makes sense ? The 'en masse' arrival will be a logistical nightmare but we can talk about that later when I know the numbers. This is the 22nd year this Carnival has been put on so they must be doing something right ! Read on ......
The Coleford Carnival of Transport is unique, taking place on the streets of Coleford in the heart of the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean. The area is an ideal holiday destination for those who love the countryside in general and woodland and rivers in particular. Coleford is a perfect base for your visit.
The Coleford Carnival of Transport has been taking place for over 10 years, and is probably the largest event of its kind in the country. The Town Centre is closed to allow vehicles of all periods and types to be displayed. There are dedicated areas for military and commercial vehicles, which allows them to be displayed to better advantage.
This is an event organised by enthusiasts for the pleasure of other enthusiasts. The town is easily accessed from the M4, M48, M5, M50, A40 and A48, lying in the heart of the Forest of Dean - 6 miles east of Monmouth, 13 miles north of Chepstow, 10 miles south of Ross-on-Wye and 20 miles west of Gloucester.
The committee has said they would love to see some of our Bantams at the show and that we should let them know if we are attending so they can keep a record of numbers. (I will do that as and when I know)
