Hello and welcome to friends and members of KBMT. Throughout 2022 there are a variety of “anniversary” events taking place of which we are proud to be associated with. Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June will see the Museum involved in the Keighley Festival of Transport, and will be open from 10am to 4pm with free admission over the two days. The Museum can also be reached via the Keighley Bus Company’s free service operating over the event, using the Dalton Mills request stop. The Museum is a short walk down the Riverside estate.

August 7th (Sunday 10am to 4pm). Formed (officially as Keighley Bus Museum Trust) in 1992, the year also sees the Museum’s 30th anniversary, and the August event will center around the Museum, Trust, its vehicles and all associated with it. Why not join in our celebrations?November Sunday 6th (12noon to 6pm). Finally, our usual “Twilight” event will again take place focusing on Leeds City Transport.

Anyone wishing to bring an exhibit, or sales stall to our open days should please contact either, events@kbmt.org.uk, or editor@kbmt.org.uk.

Can we remind members/friends and any enquiries from the public that we are an unpaid Charitable organisation, and therefore not always able to reply to telephone calls as many of the Board members are otherwise employed. If you have not received a reply please try to communicate via text or email. Thank you.
