Festival of Vehicles

16 June - 16 June 2019

Our annual rally of historical vehicles from 1913 to present day including iconic Black Country vehicles.

The festival commemorates the Black Country’s historical reputation as a major centre for vehicle manufacturing and most vehicles on display have been built right here in the Black Country from 1913 up until the present day. 

More Info

See all the regional classic car brands such as Austin, Bean, Clyno, Jensen, Lomax, Quantum, Rickman, Star, Sunbeam, Swallow, Turner and Westfield plus some special guests from the early years of motor manufacture.

The Black Country has a well-deserved reputation for vehicle manufacturing, but this year we are extending the vehicles on show to the wider West Midlands area to introduce our new collection of 1930s-60s vintage vehicles donated by the Patrick Foundation. These will include cars from other regional manufacturing powerhouses such as Coventry and Birmingham.

Browse motorbikes, cars, commercial vehicles and bicycles all of whom will join the cavalcade around the roads of the Museum in the afternoon.
