Almost certainly Leyland Titans with Leyland coachwork.

This is footage from 1940 I think, was the Titan built in that time?

Yes, from 1927 to 1942, before WWII, and from 1947 to 1970 afterwards.

They look brand new - no adverts or anything. Is it a royal event? Surprising in today's eyes that the crowd has no flags to wave, but perhaps they did not do that sort of thing in the 1940s?

It was during WW2, when children from the big cities were evacuated to the countryside.

Which means it's an early model.

Probably a later TD series - I'd suggest TD5.

The Leyland Titan comment must be applied only to the front bus, although similar some of the others have six bay construction and different window shapes. I have found a picture of a TD5 in service with Blackburn, and although missing the between deck ventilators and the half drop windows in the front upper deck, most of the shapes look right to me. The bus entered srvice in 1938, and retired in 1957.
