Regular visitors to The Forum Theatre might see some familiar faces when out and about in the borough as one of Belle Vue’s Buses received a makeover this week, rebranded to promote the work of NK!

Initially, the bus will be used to promote our regular workshops in Musical Theatre, Dance and Drama as well as housing a 370 seat auditorium used by many of Stockport’s community organisations.

The bus will primarily be looking after schools and their trips during the day covering many routes across the borough.

Company Manager Darren Stannage said
“We are thrilled to have received this support from Belle Vue Bus & Coach Hire, it is a brilliant way to promote the activities we offer to the community and will really help raise our profile even further.  It’s not only a brilliant way to promote our activities for children, which are still running throughout lockdown, but we offer such a varied artistic programme each year too.  We can’t wait for the people of Stockport to be able to return to theatres safely and this gives us a wonderful chance to promote specific shows and events we are producing, be that a premier of a show or even a visit from Sir Ian McKellen.  We love to prove that you don’t need to leave the borough to experience great live theatre and Belle Vue Bus & Coach Hire will help to spread the word”
Belle Vue’s Phil Hitchen said:
“When we see the beautiful work NK do in their theatre, in schools and the community, we wanted to help contribute to promote this excellent work during these challenging times.”
