Free Metro travel is defined to be just the ticket for visitors going to Sunderland Empire because of this year’s high-flying pantomime, Peter Pan.
Theatre ticket holders going to see Peter Pan this yuletide season can reap the benefits of free travel on the Metro and the Shields Ferry for two hours before and following the performance simply by presenting their show ticket.
Chris Carson, Metro Services Director, said: “We’re delighted in order to offer free happen to be Sunderland Empire for panto ticket holders before and following the performance. Hopefully families will thoroughly benefit from the pantomime and they will make probably the most of these trip out by enjoying each of the festive events available in Sunderland including; Hadrian’s Tipi, ice skating in Keel Square plus much more.
“Families may also make use of the extra Metro services which will make travelling through the festive period quick, convenient and easy.”
Ben Phillips, Theatre Director, Sunderland Empire said: “We have been thrilled to keep our relationship with Metro Services for another pantomime season and beyond into 2019 with the free travel scheme for the customers. The initiative has proved popular during the last 2 yrs and we’d encourage customers to keep to benefit from this very beneficial local scheme.”
The free travel scheme can be an ongoing initiative and is particularly valid on a range of becoming more popular productions because the theatre enters its 2019 season from Benidorm, The Rocky Horror Calendar and Show Girls the Musical to mention but several.
Each theatre ticket entitles one individual to a free of charge return journey to Sunderland from any Metro station, around two hours before and following the performance on the date shown on the ticket. Travellers will need to have a valid theatre ticket and retain it for inspection through the entire journey. At stations with ticket gates functioning, just show your ticket to the known person in Metro staff working at the gates.
