In 2014 a unique partnership between volunteer led Fleetwood Festival of Transport, Creative People & Places project LeftCoast and Wyre Council’s Arts and Events team was formed. The idea was to programme a large-scale transport themed piece of art, into the hugely successful and well-established Tram Sunday programme.

Success during that first year, coupled with the ambition from key volunteers from Fleetwood Festival of Transport, generated the idea of SpareParts. It continued to grow, due to the continued support from LeftCoast.

Since then the project has grown in scale and reach, thanks to all those who have continued to support its development.
