Nottingham’s tram network will offer discount travel to help people from across the city join in with the upcoming Chinese New Year celebrations.
The city’s Chinese New Year festivities will begin on Saturday 21 January (11am – 4pm) when Old Market Square plays host to a number of special music and dance performances as well as stalls selling Chinese food and drink, arts and craft and traditional Chinese brush painting.
Stephanie Moss-Pearce, Assistant Marketing Manager at NET explained: “With a tram stop on the doorstep of the event and free park & ride sites across our network, we hope the tram can help people from across the city and beyond to come together and celebrate the beginning of the Chinese year of the Rooster.
“Our £5 Group Ticket, which is available all day at weekends and offers unlimited tram travel for one or two adults and up to three kids, should also provide a great value-for-money option for families that want to travel to join in the fun.”
Taking place the following weekend on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 January, Lakeside Arts will host a special event that will see Nottingham-based digital artist Barret Hodgson illuminate the University's iconic Trent Building with spectacular digital projections inspired by Chinese culture.
The event is free, but advance booking is required and those with tickets can take advantage of NET’s £2 Event Ticket offer which will provide discounted return tram travel to the Lakeside Arts centre, which is short stroll from the network’s University of Nottingham tram stop.
