The family friendly event takes place on Saturday 8 September, 10am – 4pm, at the Streetlife Museum of Transport on Hull’s High Street, and is free admission.
Attractions include free open-top and vintage bus trips around the city, a display of vintage and modern buses, a children’s trail and bus-related games and activities, the award-winning EYMS Brass Band, stalls selling bus models, photos and memorabilia, facepainting, the winning entries of the EYMS Photography Competition, and much more.
Big Bus Day will also be partnering with Heritage Open Days to provide guided open top bus tours which will take you around some of the city’s most historic buildings.
Ideal for both families and bus enthusiasts alike, all are welcome, and there’s also the opportunity to look around the fascinating displays of the Streetlife Museum.
Bob Rackley, Commercial Manager of EYMS, said: “Big Bus Day really has something for everyone, whether you’re a fan of vintage buses, or are just looking for a fun day out for the family. We love to see people come along to the event year after year, and we hope this September brings sunshine and bumper crowds to Hull’s wonderful Museums Quarter.”
Councillor Dave Craker, portfolio holder for leisure and tourism, said: “The Big Bus Day at Hull’s fantastic Streetlife Museum always proves extremely popular and this year’s event promises to be no exception.
“This year is again proving to be a brilliant year for cultural events in Hull. I would like to encourage as many people as possible to come down and support this wonderful free event.”
Admission and most activities are free, although donations will be collected in support of the NSPCC and other charities.
