Nottingham’s tram network is set to help spread Christmas cheer throughout the city with some festively-themed activities on its services this week.
Today (Tuesday December 22nd) and Wednesday December 23rd, customers travelling on selected trams between Old Market Square, Beeston Centre and Clifton Centre will be treated to a number of Christmas giveaways and seasonal performances.
NET will also be giving its customers the chance to win some top prizes including a years’ worth of free tram travel as well as home match tickets for Notts County FC and the Nottingham Panthers.
Jamie Swift, NET Marketing Manager, commented: “Following the recent extension of the network we’re looking forward to our busiest Christmas ever and the competitions and activities on the network are a thank you for all the support we’ve received over the last few months.”
Live performances will be taking place at Old Market Square and Beeston Interchange between 10am and 1pm across the two days, with Nottingham soprano singer, Lily Taylor-Ward, performing on the Tuesday and Dagfa House School Choir singing carols on the Wednesday.
Jamie continued: “We wanted to help our customers get into the festive spirit ahead of Christmas Day and what better way to do that than with some heartwarming festively-themed entertainment and giveaways.”
Along with the special activities on the network, trams will be running to a full timetable every day apart from Christmas Day throughout the holiday period.
Families using the tram will also be able to take advantage of the special 5 for £5 Group Ticket which has been extended to cover all day travel for two adults and up to three children until Monday January 4.
