UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL 13 October 2017 00:00

On Friday 13 October HRH The Duke of Gloucester will visit the Oxford Bus Museum to celebrate 50 Years of Bus Preservation in Oxfordshire. He will be accompanied by John Harwood, The Vice Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, who has previously visited the museum and described it as a quirky hidden gem of a museum.

This transport museum is laid out with visitors in mind and not a bus garage with inaccessible buses, cars and bicycles. It also contains the Morris Motors Museum which will be of special interest to the Duke.

For security reasons journalists wishing to attend the event should contact either Frank Collingwood (01993 811003 / treasurer@oxfordbusmuseum.org.uk ) or Chris Butterfield (01296 337622 / cr.butterfield@btinternet.com) by 5.30pm on Wednesday 11 October and bring photo identification with them.
