Dover Transport Museum volunteers Pete Sparshott and Julian Grebby were an important part of the Destination Dover Team at the annual Ostend at Anchor Festival this year.
Julian's 1914 American LaFrance car was a star of the show attracting young and old alike and helped stimulate a lot of interest in Dover as a tourist destination and in the museum as a place well worth a visit.
The museum is very pleased to have once again taken a number of our exhibits to the Port of Dover's
White Cliffs Christmas event to help make it the success it has become since it's inception in 2016.
The museum is delighted to be able to provide items such as this coffin carrier for scene setting in the
Marlowe Theatre's production "Return of the Unknown Soldier" at the cruise terminal on the 8th - 11th November.
