Get ready, Truckfest North West, we're coming for you!

We've been here, there and everywhere this summer, attending numerous truck shows up and down the country - but we aren't finished just yet. Next up is Truckfest North West, which will be held at The Royal Cheshire Showground in Knutsford on the 17th and 18th of September - and we can't wait to see you there!

Established in 1963, Truckfest remains Europe's largest trucking festival. With a host of family-friendly performances and attractions, including monster trucks, arena stunt shows, children's characters, exhilarating rides and the chance to see some incredible vehicles - the weekend is not to be missed for local truck enthusiasts. We're looking forward to bringing along some of our favourite vehicles from the F&W fleet, including 'Albert', who will be getting a rare trip out of our HQ, Albion House! 

Albert, who commemorates a core aspect of our company's heritage, represents our F&W operations during the post-war period, whereby similar vehicles would have been used to transport textiles and associated products from the Lancashire cotton mills.  Abert might look a little out of place out and about on the roads in 2022, which is why we keep him for display purposes only, but that hasn't stopped him from becoming a firm favourite amongst staff and visitors. 

We'll also be bringing along our brilliant Scania 3 Series, which was restored in 2016. The Scania 3 Series was the backbone of our fleet in the late 1990s and early 2000s - and represents a significant period of growth for F&W.

Making up one of our favourite Heritage Collection vehicles, the Scania 3 Series was originally purchased in 2005, before being retired in 2010. The truck now represents one of the last incarnations of the old F&W livery, which features the iconic hand-painted sign writing - before we rebranded in the early 2000s. "It's always exciting to be able to get together with fellow truck enthusiasts, and the atmosphere at Truckfest is second to none", says F&W Operations Strategy Director, Daniel Wood. "We're bringing along numerous other trucks from our fleet as well, and have our fingers crossed for some more wins from our team!"
