Sandbach Transport Festival

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This year’s Sandbach transport festival took place across a sunny weekend with the Sunday parade being well attended across the town. Originally founded to display the town’s transport giants Fodens and ERF the festival is one of the first major events in the Sandbach calendar.

The Saturday is reserved for the more unusual cars including the classic and the interesting, the Sunday involves a 1.5 mile parade around the small Cheshire town culminating in a display on the Sandbach commons car park.

This year involved a series of cars that have never appeared before at the transport festival, including a 1927 Riley Special and a 1965 Chevrolet Corevette alongside the classics such as the Fodens steam engines and the Arclid transport fleet.

It’s estimated that more than 200 vehicles took part in this year’s transport festival.
