EVERYONE’S getting on board celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee.
As well as street parties and community events, transport bosses are planning a special Jubilee Story Train, running on June 5.
Bosses from Metro are rolling out the red carpet and inviting little Wearside kings and queens to don their crowns and costumes and come on board the enchanting Royal Carriage.
The designated Metro train, free to anyone who requests a voucher, will be decked with bunting and flags, and will come complete with an interactive Story Teller from Newcastle’s Seven Stories bookstore.
The train will be running on Tuesday, June 5.
Anyone who wants to take advantage of the Free Metro Story Train can book their place on the train by emailing name, address and number of tickets required to firstname.lastname@example.org .
