Every Thursday to Sunday, from 6 December 2018 to 22 December 2018, English Heritage are encouraging families to make the most of their winter evenings this December with an enchanting experience of light, colour and sound as Belsay Hall is transformed into an illuminated world. A free shuttle bus service will run from Ponteland Middle School direct to Belsay Hall for this event, as parking on-site is reserved for Blue Badge holders and people with additional needs. Go North East will operate this Park & Ride service, which requires five single-deck vehicles. As such; this vehicle has transferred from Deptford Depot to Riverside, where it will be allocated to services 64/95 on weekdays only, to release a Scania L94 to the Enchanted Belsay event.
