Sandtoft Trolley Bus Museum Blues & Twos Weekend

Sandtoft Trolley Bus Museum Blues & Twos Weekend Live demonstartions and static displays of emergency service vehicles from the last 100 years on display on the 20th & 21st of August 2016 For the 11th year running the fabulous trolley bus museum in Sandtoft will once again be hosting a Blues & Twos weekend.

Police, Ambulance and Fire vehicles from the last 100 years on display and carrying out live demonstrations of the equipment they carry and incidents they have been called to.


Just got back from the Steam Show at Sandtoft Trollybus Museum where we were providing event fire cover. It was nice to see some familiar faces and even nicer to discover that "god" has resigned. We may now look to see if we can put on another event next year, but it is entirely dependent on whether we can muster enough exhibitors who are willing to come back and whether the museum will be prepared to have us.


We have been doing Sandtoft Blues and Two's weekend for longer than I care to remember and have had some good days (and nights) there, but last year we were asked to take over the show and had the misfortune to have to deal with somebody called Stewart who identified himself as... erm... "God" Yes! Seriously!.

The only God of my free time and the way I choose to spend it is me and as a result we shall not be running the event this year. Tony and the others are a fantastic bunch of guys who have been nothing other than helpful and we have took this decision with a very heavy heart, but I will not be spoken to like that by the managing director when I am giving up my weekend for the benefit of the museum; it is a real shame after all these year that one moron has ruined it for the rest, but I can go to plenty of shows that don't have rude obnoxious people (or at least not rude obnoxious people in overall control) so that is it as far as we are concerned.

If anybody that has an interest in the show would like to take it over then get in touch and I will supply you with the contacts at the museum. Likewise, if the museum manage to get rid of that pious muppet then we would be happy to come back as either exhibitors and organisers, but not until!

Many thanks to Tony and the rest of the team, the catering staff and the exhibitors who have spent a lot of money to bring their vehicles so that we have a show in the first place and I wish the museum the best of luck for the future.


Ok so preparations are now underway for this years show. Entry forms available from us (just send a message for now) and will be posted out to all those who have previously attended in the next couple of weeks.
We have decided that those of you who can turn up on the Friday night we can help you out with food so, and this is on a first come first served basis, we will have a curry, a chilli and a potato pie on offer from around 4pm on the Friday.
So those of you working can forget about sorting you own food out as we have solved the problem for you.


We will be posting a link so you can download an exhibitors form in the next few weeks so hang on in there with us.
