Saltwell Park Fireworks - Saturday 5 November

News   •   Oct 27, 2016 10:56 BST

Going to the Saltwell Park Fireworks display on Saturday 5 November? Well, so are we with a special bus service from Gateshead Interchange, in addition to our Angel and Coaster services that stop outside the Park entrance on Durham Road.

As well as a fantastic fireworks display, there’ll be fairground rides, a huge bonfire, entertainment from Metro Radio and some fantastic prizes from intu Metrocentre.

You can catch our F1 bus from Stand D at Gateshead Interchange with buses running every few minutes from 5pm until 7.50pm with buses back from Saltwell Park running until 9.30pm. Fares are only £1 for Adults or 50p for Children on the F1 bus, so why not park free in central Gateshead and save the hassle of parking near the site as parking is restricted?

If you’re travelling from Chester-le-Street, Birtley, Low Fell or Newcastle our Angel 21 will be running at least every 15 minutes during the evening. Or, if you’re travelling from Low Fell, Newcastle, Wallsend, North Shields or Whitley Bay our Coaster 1 will be running every 30 minutes.

Bus diversions

Due to road closures on Saltwell View, Brinkburn Avenue and Field House Road, services 53 and 54 will be diverted between 5pm and 9pm between Coatsworth Road and Saltwell Road via Whitehall Road in both directions.
