Arriva North West announce special offer and artwork in support of Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake & Bad Things

Written by Emma Walsh, 21st February 2017

Arriva North West are proud to be supporting Michael Rosen’s Bear Hunt, Chocolate Cake & Bad Things event as travel sponsor. The event, organised by The Reader’s Storybarn, celebrates some of Rosen’s most loved work with interactive exhibitions for children and their families.

Located on Thomas Steers Way in the heart of Liverpool ONE the event explores the stories and poems of former Children’s Laureate and best-selling author Michael Rosen, bringing some of the nation’s favourite stories to life. Children are invited to step inside a huge Chocolate Cake, swishy swashy through the Bear Hunt trail and bravely explore the Bad Things and Uncle Gobb’s Dread Shed.

As part of their event support, Arriva will be kitting out some of the city centre buses with Bear Hunt creative, plus anyone purchasing an Arriva Family Saver ticket will be offered 10% off event family tickets.

Simply jump on any of the city centre buses in to Liverpool ONE and show your bus ticket on arrival to redeem.

Julie Linforth, Marketing Director, Arriva North West says:

‘We are really excited to be supporting The Reader on the Michael Rosen event and we are hoping this will be the first of many Arriva can get involved with. Our main aim it to keep our customers connected, and with so many great attractions and events in Liverpool, there is a lot to see and do! Taking the bus can often get you much closer to where you want to be, all whilst avoiding high parking fares and city centre traffic. Make the bus journey part of the fun and keep an eye out for our Bear Hunt buses!’

Jane Davis, The Reader’s Founder and Director says:

“We’re thrilled to have Arriva on board as one of the supporters of this project. By using their network to bring people from across the Liverpool City Region to the heart of Liverpool ONE, they are helping families who might otherwise not have the opportunity to see some of Michael Rosen’s wonderful stories come to life.
