  1. is their usually event transport from Sunderland for these such events, or is is public bus if so can someone point a newbie bus wanker in the right direction. Can't find no info on any website so I don't think there is but thought I would ask.
    Nee photos but it's a wad from me.

    I know the 78 and 78A buses go past the park. Just go on the Nexus bus timetables website and work out your route:

    That's a bit steep. A Day Rover (Bus AND Metro) for all tyne & wear is only £7.

    By the looks of that I can get there but not back..
    Looking again I guess it turns into the 78a later on. There is hope!
    I can sub you a few quid if times are hard mate
     
  7. If you are a pensioner you get free buses anywhere, so cant see them being happy with £33 like.

    I would be amazed if they don't do shuttle buses.
     
  10. I remember when the park was a colliery.

    excellent point. £33 seems a reasonable price for Katherine Jenkins at that sort of event with a full orchestra.
     
  14. Wandered around it with the dogs today, the mine closed in 1985.
     
  15. So the rumour she is going to the Round Robin for a post-show cider and black is true?

  18. Yes it's strange to think that thousands of people worked there over the years and of course RIP to those who didn't reach the surface after a shift.
