Why not join us on some of these events? Each Membership Card will allow you to bring one guest. Extra guests and any non-members can join us by taking out a Day Membership for £5.00.

The bus will normally pick up from Victoria Street, Northampton and return there at the end of the day. Departure and anticipated return times (unless shown above) will be notified nearer to the date once details are finalised.

All trips must cover the costs of running them. We hope you would consider giving NTH a realistic donation to help with ongoing expenses. Bear in mind that our costs include not only the fuel used on the day but also tyres, insurance, repair and maintenance, storage and ongoing preservation.

Remember that some of the trips will involve entrance charges and we do not include these. Wherever possible we will tell you what these are but many rates for this year have not yet been set by the venues.

If you are interested in joining us on any of the above days please let me know by using the contact form located on the contact page. Remember to say who you are, which trip you want to come on and how many of you there will be. Details will then be confirmed to you a short while before the event date.

Additional outings to bus rallies and running days are likely to be arranged during the year and you will be updated as these are booked.

Please note that all trips are subject to availability of the vehicle and being able to provide a crew for the bus.

We look forward to seeing you.
