Extra trams will be running on Thursday evening (5 November) as local people flock to Nottingham’s annual free Bonfire Night celebrations at the Forest Recreation Ground.

NET’s Marketing Manager, Jamie Swift, said: “The event is already hugely popular but now our new lines are open, access couldn’t be any easier for thousands more residents from a wider part of the city.”

The celebrations will include fairground rides, bonfire and firework displays and Jamie added: “Just like Goose Fair, we take people right to the event’s doorstep with direct trams across the city. We’ll also be running additional services during the evening, maintaining a ten-minute frequency on both lines right up until just after midnight.”

He added that NET’s £5 group ticket will also be available from 5pm for two adults plus up to three children. “These can be bought from tram stop ticket machines before boarding and customers should retain them because checks will be taking place at The Forest.”

The event will mean restricted access to The Forest park and ride site where, from 4pm on 5 November, there will be no access except for disabled drivers.

Jamie added: “The site will be open as usual during the day and people who have parked there before 4pm will still be able to leave with their vehicles at any time.”
