Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th May ~ Mid-May 40’s Weekend!
A look back at the roaring 40s. There will be a park & ride, as well as free bus services running to Lowestoft and Beccles using the museum's period buses, along with many visiting vehicles of the era on both days. There will also be trade stands as well as our BBQ.
The evening running of our tram and trolleybus fleet on Saturday in the museum's unique setting of the gentle glow of lamplight plus sounds of the band playing make this a weekend not to be missed.

Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th July ~ 50th Anniversary of The Museum Site
50 years ago the site became a museum in the making and a lot has changed since then. A milestone worth celebrating and you are invited to an event with all the usual facilities of a park and ride and free bus services running to Lowestoft and Beccles on both days.
There will be a BBQ and also trade stands. Our trolleybuses will whisk you round the site and our trams will transport you through our sun-dappled woods to a secluded picnic spot.

Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th September ~ End of Season Gala
As the season draws to a close a weekend of fun; all available vehicles from the fleet will be running and as the nights begin to draw in we will be running after dark on Saturday.
There will be a park & ride and free bus services running to Lowestoft and Beccles as usual. The BBQ and all the trade stands and static exhibitions, along with visiting vehicles, will be present

Saturday 31st October ~ Halloween
The EATM opens longer into October and is able to offer some spooky happenings around the museum this year, as the woodland area is just the place to attract the ghosts and ghoolies! There will be prizes for all children in fancy dress. Late running into the early evening, twilight will be a chilling experience for all.
