Vehicle Rally at Lincoln Castle - Sunday 29 May 2022

We have organised an annual rally in the grounds of Lincoln Castle for many years, and are pleased to be hosting the long awaited event once again in 2022.

The event attracts a variety of Cars, motorcycles and small commercial / military vehicles, and we are now fully booked for vehicle entries - please be aware that space in the Castle Grounds is limited, and we can not accept entries on the day that have not booked.

For any enquiries about vehicle entries already made, please contact the rally organiser.

Please see the Castle website for visitor information, directions and detail of local car parks. There is no additional admission charge for visitors to the Rally.

Transport Festival events at the Museum - SATURDAYS 9 July, 3 September 2022 - 10 am to 5 pm

Bringing our collection to life, come and see over 50 historic vehicles in our museum and enjoy a selection of buses from our collection running a free bus service throughout the day giving nostalgic rides, following the first of the new style of event on Saturday 30 May. Our thanks to everyone who came to this event.

Refreshments available.

Public transport is available from Lincoln Bus Station, Stagecoach service 9 or train to Hykeham Station, a short walk to the Museum.

We regret we are unable to accommodate visiting vehicles or park & ride and there is no on-site parking.

Admission £10.00 per person.


Please Note -

After much consideration and discussion, we very reluctantly decided in 2021 not to organise any further Transport Festival events on the same scale as events up to 2019, but we are looking towards smaller events at the Museum instead for the coming season.

Concerns have been raised regarding the wisdom of expecting large numbers of people to cross Whisby Road safely and regularly all day, as traffic has become rather heavy and there are those drivers (not entrants!) who are very impatient as well as those who do not respect the speed limit. Not a safe mix at all.

We realise this will come as a big disappointment to very many, but sincerely hope you will totally understand why. Our last event was superb, and this is how we would like the event and the members who made it possible remembered. Our thanks are also extended to all our neighbours and local businesses for their generous support over the years, and not least, all the folk who made this possible. Many visitors and vehicle owners travelled considerable distances over the years to help the Society and be with us, and we are immensely grateful to all for the enthusiasm shown at these events.
