Have your say

A special tram decorated with drawings by Sheffield artist Pete McKee is to be unveiled as part of the city Supertram’s 21st anniversary.

Passengers will also be able to ride a tram while it goes through a giant tram wash, see old photographs of the tram system and have a behind the scenes tour of the Stagecoach Supertram Nunnery depot this Sunday October 25.

Other attractions include tours, welding demonstrations, history talks, activities, crafts and even the cutting of a cake made in the shape of a tram.

The free event takes place from 10am until 4pm on Sunday at the depot off Woodbourn Road.

“It’s our opportunity to open the gates and invite the public in for a look behind the scenes and to learn about what goes on at the depot to run the services that our passenger rely on every day”, said Margaret Kay, managing director of Stagecoach Supertram.

“It’s also our chance to celebrate 21 years of what is an iconic and much-loved network in Sheffield and there’ll be lots of treats and surprises for guests who come to meet us on Sunday.”

Drivers attending the event can park their cars for free at the Nunnery Square park and ride facility on Sunday.
