Group and Party Visits (Including Coach Trips)

We are always pleased to welcome group and private party visits as well as hosting coach trips during our normal open days. Whilst we prefer such visits to coincide with our open days, we recognise that is not always possible and are happy to receive enquiries about visits at other times.

We are able to offer a range of catering options for group & party visits and coach trip visits.

Group and Private Parties

Private parties may include social groups, a birthday (or other) celebration, enthusiasts, school visits, scouts, beavers, brownies and the like, car clubs, special needs groups, “learned” organisations - we can welcome you all!

You may just want a visit as a group to our Museum, or maybe you want more, such as a guide to talk to your party and show them around, you may want somewhere to hold a meeting such as an AGM or some sort of “get together”. Any of that is possible at the Trolleybus Museum, and we can offer a range of catering.

On open days

Group and private party visits can normally be accommodated on any open day, so it depends on what you want:

If just a visit by a large group, prior notice is requested to enable us to be ready to receive and be able to cater for you. A discount of 15% on entrance prices will be applied to parties of 15 or more visitors paying together on an open day. This discount applies only to Adult, Senior and Concession rates - it does not apply to the Family package.

If there are different requirements for a group or party visit during an open day, or to enquire about any special requirements, including bespoke catering arrangements, please email us at partyvisits@sandtoft.org (and where appropriate, please include details of any special dietary needs).

At other times

We are happy to receive enquiries about private party visits on days other than our normal open days, when we can also provide catering.

As our Museum is run entirely by volunteers, be aware it just may not be possible to muster sufficient staff to be able to accommodate you on your chosen day or time, but we will do our best to meet your needs. Costs depend on exactly what (including catering) is required (as appropriate, please include details of any special dietary needs when you make your enquiry).

We require a deposit of £100.00 at the time of booking (deposit is returnable, less a small handling charge to cover costs if the visit is cancelled no less than ten days prior to the booked date). Unless agreed otherwise at time of booking, payment of the balance of the cost should be paid at least 7 days prior to the date of the visit. A receipted invoice can be issued upon request. The Museum is not registered for VAT.

To enquire further, please email us at partyvisits@sandtoft.org .

Car Club "Meets" and Rallies and  the Like

We would be interested to host a car club “meet” or rally or the like as part of one of our open days in the future. Please look at our Taking Part page, and/ or email us at trolleybusmuseum@sandtoft.org.

Coach Trip Visits

On open days

Coach trip visits can normally be accommodated on any open day, but prior notice is requested to enable us to be ready to receive and be able to cater for such visits. A discount of 15% on entrance prices will be applied to coach parties of 15 or more (the driver is admitted free), but note that this discount applies only to Adult, Senior and Concession rates - it does not apply to the Family package.

Bespoke catering can be provided for coach parties on normal open days (this excludes Sandtoft Gathering Day). For a quotation, please email us at partyvisits@sandtoft.org with your requirements (and please include details of any special dietary needs). Please note that a deposit will be required with the booking for any bespoke catering for coach trip visits on an open day.

Payment: For coach trip visits on an open day, unless agreed otherwise at time of booking, payment of admission charges is due at, or prior to arrival at, the Museum. Payment for special catering is required at least 7 days prior to the visit. We recommend admission payment is made in advance, as this will reduce congestion at the entrance. A receipted invoice can be issued upon request. The Museum is not registered for VAT. Payment at the entrance upon arrival can be by cash or credit/ debit card: company cheques can only be accepted and cleared at least 7 days prior to the visit.

At other times

We are happy to receive enquiries about coach trip visits on days other than our normal open days, when we can also provide catering.

To enquire about setting up a coach trip to our Museum, please email us at partyvisits@sandtoft.org for a quotation, providing as much information as possible about special requirements, catering needs, numbers, a date (or choice of dates) and timing. We will do our best to meet your requirements (but please note that as our Museum is run entirely by volunteers, it just may not be possible to muster sufficient staff to be able to accommodate you on your chosen day or time).

We require a deposit of £100.00 at the time of booking (deposit is returnable, less a small handling charge to cover costs if the visit is cancelled no less than ten days prior to the booked date).

Payment: Unless agreed otherwise at time of booking, payment of the balance of the cost for these visits should be made at least 7 days prior to the date of the visit. A receipted invoice can be issued upon request. The Museum is not registered for VAT.

Special catering for group & party visits, including coach trip visits

We are able to offer a range of catering options for group and party visits and coach trip visits both on normal open days and at other times. The offer can include simple hot or cold drinks with biscuits and/ or home-made cake(s), a cream tea, a selection of sandwiches or filled rolls, or a buffet. Or a combination of these. Special dietary needs can also be met. The choice is yours, so email us at partyvisits@sandtoft.org to discuss in more detail what we can offer so that we can provide you with a quotation.

If special catering is required on one of our normal open days, this would normally be provided in a room reserved for your party.
