Sutton Coldfield Bus passengers unusual journey
Unusual Sutton Coldfield Journey - Sutton Coldfield bus passengers were treated to an unusual journey when under cover actors burst into character to recreate scenes from a famous pantomime.

The onboard rendition of Cinderella caused "a few raised eyebrows" on the 110 Arriva service on Monday afternoon, the bus company said.

The firm recruited local actors to pose as commuters on the double decker before putting on the show.

Keith Myatt, marketing manager for Arriva Midlands, said: "The purpose of this theatrical performance was to raise awareness about the fantastic off-peak services we offer in the midlands area.

"It was great to see the reaction on people's faces when the performers began to re-enact a short scene from Cinderella."

He added: "We certainly think it raised a few eyebrows amongst our passengers and gave them something to talk about when they got home."

The 110 bus runs frequently between Birmingham City Centre and Tamworth, via Sutton Coldfield.
