Sing Song Merrily on Buses!


This is a unique, and fun event for all the family.

I notice that this Saturday evening (12th December 2015) Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge will be hosting ‘Sing Song Merrily on Buses’ – a great Christmas music and fun event to really get you in the spirit of the season.

It runs from 4:30pm until 6:30pm, and features community singalong, vintage vehicles, musical bus pickups, Aldridge School Swing Band and much more!

The Museum had this to say about this unique event:

Sing Song Merrily… With The Bus Conductors

A musical festive event is to be held at an Aldridge Transport Museum, as a result of a joint community arts project.

‘Sing Song Merrily on Buses’, to be held at Aston Manor Road Transport Museum on Saturday 12th December, is a joint project between the vintage bus museum and Aldridge Arts.

Aldridge Arts is a community project featuring local event managers working together to create and promote community events, with this event organised by Russell Smith of Aldridge Cinema and Julie Homfray of Cohesion / Comedy with Cake.

The arts project decided to hold a teatime event to kick off the Christmas season with music to help raise the local profile of the museum. Located off Northgate in Aldridge, it houses an impressive collection of vintage vehicles. Classic Buses from Walsall and Brownhills will be available for people attending, including two special ‘live music’ bus services.

On arrival, guests will be given a welcome drink and mince pie and have a chance to look around the museum. Live music sets will take place throughout the event, with guests including Aldridge School Swing band, The Rule of Three and swing singer Carl Hodson. There will also be a community Christmas singalong by the museum’s traditional village street scene.

Tickets are £6 and include entry and donation to the museum, entertainment, welcome drink and mince pie and a free bus collection pick up from Walsall (via Rushall) or Brownhills (via Streets Corner). For timetables and tickets visit or call Aldridge Arts on 01922 456 742. Parking is also available at the museum.
