FW: Back of the Bus in Accrington

Dear Mr Jones

We have something exciting happening in your constituency that we thought you'd want to know about. Later this month we have invited New Zealand based Java Dance Company to come and perform on a Transdev Lancashire Way bus. The show, Back of the Bus, will tour to six Pennine Lancashire towns from 22-27 June. This is real coup for Pennine Lancs.

Tickets are the same price as a regular bus day ticket on The Lancashire Way for the 'Silver' area (Lancashire). This is £6 for adults and £4.20 for under 19s (this will also be the concessionary price for over 65s). The tickets are available directly from the starting venues in each location. Full details of the tour are available on the Transdev website by visiting
'Back of the Bus' is a magical mystery tour of the unexpected as dancers propel themselves down the aisles and hang from the roof on the top deck of The Lancashire Way bus, provided by Transdev.

The show will be in Accrington on Thursday June 23 at 2pm and 7pm. The Lancashire Way bus will set off from Accrington Library on a journey of approximately one hour with two stops on the way.

Praised by critics for its choreography, "Back of the Bus" is an intimate performance both on and off the bus, as characters' stories play out in several intriguing locations. With only a bus-load of seats available to each performance, the show's dance and physical theatre unfold right next to the audience, promising to captivate them in the world the show creates.

The result is remarkably accessible dance theatre that has been enjoyed by non-dance fans every bit as much as regular dance-goers in its very successful seasons back in New Zealand, as well as a sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year.

Culturapedia has been working with Super Slow Way, Plugged In, Spot On Libraries and Transdev to make this happen.

I know that Thursday is not usually a constituency day but let me know if you'd be able to come.

Many thanks
