Dear Michael, I was forwarded your details by my colleague Rachel at Gawthorpe Hall – I hope you don’t mind. I'm working with Rachel and Steve Walsh at Padiham Town Hall to plan an event that I'm hosting on Thursday 17 October in the Council Chamber at the Town Hall featuring the artist Alice Kettle who is currently exhibiting work at Gawthorpe – more details here. People will be travelling to the event from across the county and beyond. I would like to organise a shuttle bus service to ferry attendees between Burnley Manchester Road Train Station, Gawthorpe Hall and Padiham Town Hall. More than one person has mentioned the Shirley Bus to me – it would be great if we could please hire her (and you) to transport people on the day. The event at Gawthorpe Hall commences at 4.30 (for registration), for a 5pm start. The last admission to the exhibition at Gawthorpe Hall is 4pm. We would like people to have enough time to visit the exhibit prior from around 2pm. Ideally the bus would do a loop between the three locations. We would require a timetable to coordinate with train arrival times. Are you please able to assist – please give me a call or drop me a line to assist. Regards, Ed


Hi - I am the manager of Gawthorpe Hall and I am interested to have a chat with you about the possibility of using the bus for events at Gawthorpe Hall in Padiham, probably for 2020 as we have got something organised for this year. Please send me an email or get in touch 01282 771004

Message: I was wondering if you would be able to answer a few questions. I was looking at booking a vintage bus for my upcoming wedding. Would you be able to travel to Wigan? How many does it seat? How much would it cost? Is it available on 10-04-2021? I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Rachel
