Norwich City of Ale’s bus back for second event
One of the colourful attractions at last year's first City of Ale event in Norwich was the vintage 1954 Bristol LD double-decker, which became recognised as the City of Ale bus.
The bus will again be seen at various locations around the city during the second City of Ale event, which starts todayand runs until Sunday, June 10.
The bus belongs to the Eastern Transport Collection Society, a charity which also owns six other buses that once belonged to Eastern Counties and Great Yarmouth Transport.
The bus is due to transport Norwich's Mayor and Sheriff from City Hall to the festival hub, St Gregory's Centre for the Arts in Pottergate, for the launch party today.
Over the four-day Jubilee weekend it will be running a free service to link in with the ale trails, as part of the City of Ale event. The bus will leave from outside the Forum on Saturday and from outside Theatre Royal on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Departure time will be 11.30am and 3pm each day. The bus will also pick up the panellists from outside City Hall for tomorrow'spolitical debate and take them to St Gregory's. The following weekend the bus will be visiting a number of pubs and the Humpty Dumpty brewery in Reedham.
