Sandra Diane Ricketts
The Llandudno Transport Festival is sad to announce the loss of Sandra, one of the main organisers, after a short illness. Sandra was behind the organisation of the Llandudno Transport Festival for 25 years, and will be sorely missed by us all. With her firmness and smile she made sure that everybody toed the line, making it into one of the best festivals of its type in the UK. In that spirit, the Llandudno Transport Festival will continue to bring together all our friends in the heritage vehicle movement and look forward to the future.
"Do not stand at my grave and weep"

The Transport Festival is the largest in Wales and one of the U.K.'s best-loved events. It is held in conjuction with the Victorian Extravaganza. Costume, vintage fairground and a host of attractions combine in a unique annual celebration of transport and entertainment heritage within the town. The two events are linked by a free shuttle-bus service.

Regular Events:
The Saturday road run normally takes in a tour of the World Heritage town of Conwy, via Llanrhos and Deganwy. Further details of the Saturday road run will be available on the Festival Field during the late afternoon.
Sunday sees two major events, there is the annual Crosville gathering of buses, coaches and enthusiasts ancient and modern and the Extravaganza street parade of walkers in costume, cyclists, marching bands, entertainers and traction engines to circle the town. The spectacle lasts almost an hour.

On Sunday evening the second road run normally takes place around the celebrated Marine Drive for superb coastal views and most unusual photo-opportunites. The half-way stop by the 'Rest and be Thankful' cafe is a transport spectacular in itself. There will be more information on whether the road run takes place on the Festival field.

The Extravaganza street parade around the town is repeated at midday on Monday
