Half a century has passed since the last of Reading’s electrically-powered trolleybuses weaved their silent way through the streets of our town. Join this nostalgic journey, tracing the story of Reading Trolleybus system from the beginning of the Second World War to height of the swinging sixties. With unique imagery, object-rich displays and first-hand accounts from the people who drove and rode on these much-loved vehicles, this is a not-to-be-missed community display.

A limited edition Anniversary Trolleybus booklet, produced by the British Trolleybus Society is available free on a first come-first served basis.
