It takes place between 10am and 5pm on Sunday, and attendees can see a huge variety of classic, rare, and unusual cars.

Vehicle enthusiasts from across the country flock to Fleetwood to see classic cars, vintage trams, buses, trucks, motorcycles - and dozens of stall and food vendors too.

But there is more to this event than the usual kind of transport festival, as it includes the SpareParts element, an eye-catching spectacle incorporating performance art and unusual displays on a transport theme.

One of the highlight's of Sunday will be the annual SpareParts Arts Parade starting from Ash Street at 3pm and continung down Lord Street and North Albert Street to outside the North Euston Hotel.
This will see an array of international artists, along with over 150 people from the local community, come together in a celebration of a great day.
The parade will be a cavalcade of curiosities, contraptions and musical vehicles designed by artists and local people as it makes its way across Fleetwood, watched by crowds of onlookers.
Jodie Gibson, SpareParts Festival Artistic Director, said: “SpareParts really is a unique festival where transport and arts collide!
“It’s great to be returning to Fleetwood, where SpareParts began in 2014.”
