Halloween competition

We're hoping to inject some light-hearted fun into Halloween this year.

Seven of our buses will be dressed up with Halloween decorations and then put out in service on Saturday 31st October. And, we’d like your help in making these buses as spooktacular as possible!

Given many children might not get out trick-or-treating or to Halloween parties this year, we’re inviting primary school-aged children (aged 11 years or under) to send in an A4-size poster, that they’ve drawn or painted, which will potentially be displayed on one of our decorated Halloween buses!

Posters can be of any Halloween theme, but if you'd like to design a Halloween bus then you can print off our bus colouring in sheet.

We will choose a selection of these posters to be displayed on buses and on social media. If we choose your poster, we will let you know so that you can keep an eye out for it on social media and on the bus if you’re travelling on Halloween.

Posters should be received by Go North East by 5pm on Wednesday 28th October.

We can't wait to see your fang-tastic efforts!

How to submit your entry

Posters must be submitted by parents or guardians on behalf of their children, either by e-mail or post and please include your contact details so that we can notify you if we have chosen your child's poster.



  • Send your entries to:
    Halloween Poster
    Go North East
    117 Queen Street

Contact details will only be used for contacting those whose posters we’ve chosen to display. By submitting a poster, you agree for us to use the poster on one of our buses and on our social media channels. Unfortunately, we cannot return posters sent to us by post.
