When is it?

The festival opens to the public at 10am on Sunday, July 21, and will finish at 5pm.

How much are tickets?

Tram Sunday is completely free! People of all ages are welcome to enjoy what is on show.

Can I volunteer?

The festival requires a large number of volunteers to ensure the smooth running of the event, which includes a car show, an arts parade, and food stalls.

There are a variety of roles to get involved with, including vehicle marshals, who coordinate the more than 300 classic cars on the day, and stewards, who interact with the public and ensure everyone has a great time.

All volunteers will receive a full briefing on their role ahead of the event.
