Get ready for the best Transportation based Festival!

Since 2015,  The Swadlincote Festival of Transport has been celebrating all that is excellent in heritage transportation in the middle of Swadlincote Town Centre.  Classic Cars, Heritage Trucks and Scooters gather together to celebrate all that is great in transportation. Every year, thousands of people enter Swadlincote Town Centre to see all that is good in transportation in this country.  Its a fun family day out with activities and events to suit all!

Raising Money for excellent causes!

Every Year, The Swadlincote Festival of Transport raises thousands of pounds for local causes. In the past we have given money to local first responders, the local air ambulance, youth chill out clubs and bands. We give to causes to promote social fellowship, to help the socially deprived and to give back to those people who deserved the funds the most. We celebrate not just cars but also social fellowship. All the money you give to enter the festival, as donations and as raffle is given back to those people who need it the most. 

Brilliant Entertainment

We gather the finest local talent to provide the best entertainment to give you a full day  in this excellent Town Centre. We have the Stormtroopers marching down the high street led by the Dark Lord of the Sith himself. We have the Daleks and the Cybermen and maybe even an appearance of the Stig! We have excellent  dancers and singers from the local talent school ready to entertain you today!
