Llandudno Transport Festival 2006
2006 Gwyl Cludiant Llandudno

1906 - 2006


The Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza, the annual three-day Carnival in the Spring (usually the first weekend in May - May Day Bank Holiday). The event is closely associated with a display of many types of veteran and vintage vehicles in the Festival of Transport held simultaneously at the showground site at Bodafon Farm Park near the Little Orme.  See link below to the Official website.

The main transport theme in 2006 is the Centenary of Crosville Motor Services, the Chester based company formed by George Crosland-Taylor and the French entrepreneur George Ville, which company was the forerunner of the present bus operator Arriva Wales.
