Norwich City FC Promotion Parade


The Norwich City Pomotion Parade will be taking place on Bank Holiday (Sunday timetables) Monday, 6th May 2019. To help meet extra demand Airport Park & Ride will be operating in addition to Thickthorn Park & Ride. Buses from both sites will depart at 7am and the last buses back will be at 6pm. Buses will operate every 20 minutes with relief buses in place as necessary. The first straight8 from Dereham to Norwich will have a relief bus to cater for additional people getting into Norwich for the start of the day's events. 

Make sure to use our group tickets from the Park and Ride sites, only £5 after 10am (£7 before 10am) - they allow up to five people to travel on one ticket! Pay your driver with cash or download our East Anglia Buses m-ticket app
