Come for a stroll, to the Metropole

The end of September brings along the first ever edition of the Metropole Market, a quintessentially eccentric experience which will animate Lansdowne’s Holdenhurst Road.

Metropole is set to be the best and biggest street market to have ever taken place in our town. Every last Sunday of each month, you are invited to witness a series of creative endeavours and enjoy artisan food, live music and locally produced goodies.

The 24th of September is when it all begins. An exhibition of local treasures, delicious food and activities specially created for your entertainment are just a few of the things you can expect to experience. As we are the transport partner of this event, we will be on hand help get you to the market without a hitch from anywhere in Bournemouth.

Part of Holdenhurst Road will be closed during the market for you to be able to enjoy the fun, without the distraction of the traffic. Our buses will end their journey on Christchurch Road, opposite Bournemouth College. At the market, you will get the chance to experience our famous ‘Poetry Bus’ firsthand. Make sure to jump on board and discover the fantastic verses from our poets in residence!

The Poetry Bus will be at the Metropole Market

The poetry bus is already well known for supporting Bournemouth’s most cultural and entertaining events. We hope to inspire the market-goers with the rhymes and riddles encrypted on the interior and exterior of the bus.

Fiona Harwood, Marketing Manager for the Yellow Buses RATP Group, said:

“We are delighted to be part of this amazing event. Here at Yellow Buses, we love to support all the cultural endeavours happening in our community. Metropole Street Market is an exciting opportunity for visitors to enjoy quality music, good food and lots of treasures from independent businesses. The market is going to be amazing and we highly recommend everyone join us on Yellow Buses to make the most of Metropole come September 24th!”

Save the dates: 24th September, 29th October, 26th November, 17th December.
