Smith's Coaches of Reading

A talk by Paul Lacey

Smith’s Coaches of Reading, with their distinctively coloured blue and orange vehicles, were an integral part of the local scene for six decades, as well as being seen all over the county on excursions, tours and seasonal coastal expresses. This is the story of how the enterprise developed from a single charabanc to become the largest privately-owned coaching firm in Southern England.

Our speaker, Paul Lacey, is the author of the comprehensively researched “Smith’s Coaches of Reading 1922-1979”. We are in safe hands.  

2 - 3.15pm

Advance booking is preferred, but you can pay on the door, if there are spaces available.
