A POPULAR museum whose future was secured earlier this year is staging a celebratory open day.

Keighley Bus Museum Trust was given notice in 2021 that it would have to vacate its Riverside base, and the hammer-blow threw the attraction's existence into jeopardy.

But in February the trust confirmed it had bought the premises – a former foundry building, off Dalton Lane.

The first official public open day takes place on Sunday, May 5.

Admission to the event, between 10am and 4pm, is free.

There will be stalls, visiting vehicles, entertainment and refreshments.

Free bus rides will operate around the town.

And the open day will include a celebration marking the 100-year anniversary of the Keighley Corporation Straker Clough, the world’s oldest surviving double-deck trolleybus.

Keighley Bus Museum was founded in 1992, and has been based at its current location since 2005.
