Hello fellow passengers,

Welcome to this months news letter


HOLIDAY ON THE BUSES Weekender

Thank you to all of you that have booked to join us for the weekend, it is going to be our best attended event at Pontins to date. There are no day tickets left but we do have 2 chalets still available, so book now or miss the bus lol. Only £30 per person deposit required, sorry no single or disabled chalets left. Have a look on the fan club web site to find out more http://www.onthebusesfanclub.com/id192.html


ON THE BUSES NETWORK  DVD's

Had a letter from Steve Horowitz with some interesting information saying that with about 30 of the episode on the Network DVD’s  if you press one on your remote when the LWT logo comes on at the start of an episode, it goes back 30 seconds earlier and  you can see the studio countdown clock, and hear the warm-up man talking to the audience. Have a look at the episode ‘Lost Property’ to start with and look to the left of the clock DING DING!


Do you fancy yourself as a character from ON THE BUSES

I am a creative events photographer and I put on large shoots across the southeast. I like to base the photo shoots on TV shows and Films, recently we have done, The wizard of oz, The Walking Dead, The Planet of the Apes, Dr Who, and On the Buses, Our on the Buses shoot in East Grinstead was so successful it was featured in every magazine and paper in the area, I arranged with The council and the organisers of East Grinstead Bus Running Day to bring along a cast of actors dressed in 60's and 70's costumes, Each was given a character and a part to play.
I have been asked by Brookland Museum to do the same again on 24th June. I am casting at the moment. I have 4 photographers and a makeup team a film crew, and so far a cast of 20 actors. This is a non profit project and its just for fun, our Makeup artists are trainee so the images go towards their portfolios and all our actors and models do this because they love doing it. 
Last year my website had 2 million views. We have a big following and some really talented people.
The shoot on 24th June will be set up using vintage buses and retro backdrops to make the images more authentic 
I hope this explains what we do. I have attached a link to last years images from East Grinstead.
We really hope we can get some characters who could pull off as the original cast. I do have an Olive. So are you a Stan, Jack, Arthur, Mum, Blakey if so and fancy appearing in the movie please contact GIno

SKEGNESS social event
 

Sorry there was a delay in information on a Social get together in Skegness, but I have now been to the area and am in talks with Butlins about holding a fans weekend there. Also in touch with a few hotels in the area about using their venues will let you know how it goes and give you an idea on prices soon. We would need 20 or more fellow passengers for it to go ahead, so if you may be interested please send an email to busefanclub@aol.com and put Skegness in the header. You are not committing to anything just to give me an idea of the interest there might be. It is hoped to hold the event towards the end of the year possible November for an early Christmas fan club party weekender.
