Carol singers, mince pie giveaways and even Mrs Claus are set to help get tram customers into the festive spirit as NET continues its countdown to Christmas.
The network’s seasonal activities will continue next week when young carol singers from the Alderman Pounder Infant School perform carols on the tram between Beeston Centre and Old Market Square on Monday (19 December).
Nottingham soprano singer, Lily Taylor-Ward, will be performing live festive favourites on trams across the network during the week, whilst NET customers may also bump into Mrs Claus who will be giving away Christmas treats between Tuesday and Thursday (20 – 22 December).
The NET sponsored Traditional Christmas Fun Fair in Beeston will also open next week. Featuring rides, stalls and fun for all the family, the fair will be open on the site of the old bus station from Monday 19 December until Christmas Eve, 24 December.
Stephanie Moss-Pearce, NET’s Assistant Marketing Manager, explained: “We’ve been building up to Christmas throughout December and we’re really hoping to ramp it up with some extra special giveaways and performances on our trams.
“Customers can follow our Facebook page and Twitter feed to keep up to date with everything that will be happening in the build up to Christmas Day.”
NET’s special Christmas Competition will also continue to run next week and throughout the holidays, giving customers the chance to win a twelve-month travel pass.
To be in with a chance of winning, customers must identify the twelve different NET stops that display one of the gifts from ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ carol. Full details can be found here.
Stephanie added: “Along with all the seasonal competitions and activities, we’ll be operating a full service throughout the festive period, with trams running all day, every day apart from Christmas Day.”
