The Santa Bus in Basingstoke: Competition Time!

****This Competition is now Closed****

Yay, I’m so excited! It’s the first competition on NHM!! Whoop Whoop!!!

Sarah from Stagecoach South sent me a lovely email asking me if I would like to publicise the Santa Bus that will be running again this year in Basingstoke.

The Santa Bus is a special service in the lead up to Christmas which is decorated to share some festive cheer, but best of all… Santa is driving the bus!! There will also be a collection to raise money for St Michael’s Hospice and there will be special treats to give away to the children.

The Santa Bus will be running on selected Services from 17th Dec to 24th Dec. The service fares are the same as the ‘normal service’, starting at 80p for a single journey, £1.50 return (£1.40 off peak). The fare will increase depending on the journey you wish to make.

To check for details about when the Santa Bus is running, click here:

In order to use the Santa Bus you will use the bus as a normal service, boarding and alighting during your journey, as per your ticket.

If you want to stay on the bus for more than one journey (because you and your children are having too much fun!) you will need to purchase a day ticket, rather than a single or return journey.

A Basingstoke family day ticket (valid the whole day) is also available, priced £8.60 peak/ £7.50 off peak (off peak is after 9am Monday to Friday and all day at weekends). This is for 2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 3 children.

The zone map for this ticket can be found here:[1].pdf

Now for the even more exciting bit! Sarah is kindly offering two Stagecoach family tickets to two very lucky NHM Readers! All you have to do is answer this (EXTREMELY easy) question:

  • Q. Which Reindeer had a very shiny nose?

and send your answer in an email to Sarah at:

by End of Day Friday 14th December.

This will give Sarah time to email you back for your address and then stick the tickets in the post so you can get them in time to go on the Santa Bus with them!

You will then be entered into the EXCLUSIVE NHM competition to win a Family Day ticket, which is valid for all Stagecoach services across Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey.

A family is classed at 2 x adult and 2 x children or 1 adult and 3 x children – ideal for taking the children out on Santa bus (a child is 15yrs or younger). The ticket will expire at the end of February, so can be used on any of the bus services, not just the Santa Bus.

How exciting!??!?!?! So, what are you waiting for? You’ve got to be in it to win it, so get emailing Sarah quickly!

Oh and the winners will be picked at random by Sarah and her team, so I can’t be blamed if you don’t win!! 😉

Thank you Sarah for the lovely tickets and for letting all NHM Readers have an opportunity to win tickets for this fabulous Santa Bus experience!
