The new venue is ARENA MK which is part of the MK Dons football ground. Exhibition is on October 13/14th 2018.
It says there is a free bus between the station and the venue throughout the day. Unfortunately it doesn't say which day or if it is both days. Also says 'priority parking' on at least one day. Which means that the Saturday could clash with a football match.

I'll try it once, but if it's not a significantly better venue than the Motor Museum I won't bother again. The museum was close enough for me to forgive most of its shortcomings, especially once they had realised you can't put a major attraction at the top of the entrance escalator.

Although I live just 20 minutes drive from the Arena MK I've never been. From the pictures on Google it looks like just one big hall. Seems it doubles up as a Basketball court and an ice rink for skating and the local Ice Hockey team, Milton Keynes Lightening. I went twice to the Motor Museum. Pete.
