Buckle up on Sunday and head to MK Museum for a wheely great day out.

Well, what else would you expect when the history hub hosts its annual Transport Festival?

Last year the event attracted more than 250 vehicles, much to the delight of the petrol-heads who checked the bodywork of the assembly of buses and coaches, military vehicles, motorbikes, minis and plenty more.

Organisers say it’s a chance to relive the days when motoring was about romance and the joy of an open road...y’know, before roadworks, road-rage and traffic jams took over!

The festival will also be busy with craft stalls, model railway displays, a BBQ and all the museum’s other popular attractions – including its own display of unique vehicles.

These include the world’s largest working ‘mobile’ phone, Penny Farthing and Boneshakers, Sinclair’s C5 and the handsome steam tram that used to transport men from Stony Stratford to Wolverton Works.

Entry is set at the usual admission price of £7.50 adults, £6 concessions.

A family ticket for two adults and up to four children costs a mere £22 proving that family days out can be affordable after all.

Now we’ve got you all revved up, reach for the car keys, pack your brood in and head to the museum on McConnell Drive in Wolverton.

The Transport Festival will run between11am and 4.30pm.
