The organisers are always on the hunt for any kinds of interesting vehicles of any shape, form or variety to come along and attend on the day.

Dave Carlos, Festival Director explains “We’re looking for anything with a story. Commercial vehicles, vans and trucks are very welcome. From the vintage Builders Supplies van to the enormous GPS enabled digger which Balfour Beatty brought along in 2016 when they were building the Fleetwood sea defences.

“Vehicles don’t need to be old – they just need to be interesting. Our friends from the Coastguard and RNLI will be there along with other emergency services. You might know someone who has, for example, a vintage ambulance!”

Dave added “Liveried vehicles, motor bikes and even push bikes are all welcome. And if you have an interesting commercial exhibit that could come along for the day, don’t forget that it’s good exposure for your business. It could even be a team building exercise for your staff!”

Vehicle Displays in 2019

The organisers are working on new ways for displaying your vehicle in 2019. This will happen during the planning stage so you’ll find out where vehicles will be once passes are issued. Your vehicle is precious and Clubs usually wish to exhibit together. The proposal is to use the side streets off Lord Street, which will give more vehicle space. It will also make a club-friendly atmosphere.

The entry details and application form to bring your vehicle along to Tram Sunday are below.

There is a small charge of £3 per car. If a club wants to attend the charge is only £10 regardless of the number of vehicles which come along. Commercial vehicles are very welcome and free to display.

Vehicle Entry Details

  • Buses and Commercials – Class A – free of charge
  • All other vehicles – Class B – £3 per vehicle
  • Car clubs – Class C – £10 per club – all Club members’ vehicles FREE
