You can take part in our open days (Trolleydays) in various ways.
Period and Classic Vehicles
Our programme of Trolleydays features a number of events when period and classic vehicles are on display. If you have a period or relevant vehicle and are able to bring it to the Trolleybus Museum to display:
- On one of the days shown below, you should download an entry form and send the completed form to us; or
- On other Trolleydays, you will be most welcome to bring a period or classic vehicle along to display - we just ask that you contact us in advance to make arrangements.

Sandtoft Gathering 2020 (Sunday, 26 July 2020). We've reluctantly decided to cancel this year's Sandtoft Gathering due to the Coronavirus crisis . However, we're hoping to be able to open by then so if you want to bring with an historic vintage or other interesting vehicle you'll be very welcome! Please contact us beforehand so we can reserve you a space.
Isle of Axholme Running Day & Rally (Sunday, 18 October 2020) - this event is organised by the Doncaster Omnibus & Light Railway Society. Please contact them for details.
Craft Stalls and Sales, Charity Stalls, Novelty Stalls, etc.
We are always interested to hear about stalls and worthy causes that might be suitable to be at the Trolleybus Museum on open days (and particularly on Sandtoft Gathering Day). Email us with details.
The Trolleybus Museum has a period street scene where its trolleybuses operate, so is well-suited for drama groups to come along on Trolleydays in period dress to generally have fun and add to the atmosphere and/ or even to stage small pieces of drama. Email us if you (or your drama group) are interested in joining in with a Trolleyday, particularly our “themed” days. We are always looking for something new to add to our Trolleydays, so if you have any ideas how your drama group could be part of a Trolleyday, please contact us.
Period Interest Exhibitions
If you are part of a local history group or have a collection of interesting period items or machinery, social history and the like, would you be interested in staging an exhibition or display at the Trolleybus Museum on one (or more) of our Trolleydays? Email us to discuss.
Car Club “Meets”, Shows and Rallies and the like
The Trolleybus Museum has the space and infrastructure to host car club “meets”, shows and rallies and other such events, so are always interested in discussing with organisations how their events could be staged as part of open days at the Trolleybus Museum. Email us if your organisation is interested in such an opportunity.
