“Tram-a-geddon” in the Nottingham Post

MORE than 1,000 people turned out for the launch of a festival which has made light of the ongoing tram chaos.

Bartons, in Chilwell Road, has launched its "Tram-A-Geddon!" season of events at its former bus garage.

Crowds flocked to the festival launch, a sell-out comedy club night. Guests included Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry.

The festival will continue on Saturday with an Oxjam gig featuring Beeston's Ceilidh Collective, including a real ale bar boasting local and national brews. It takes place from 7.30pm.

Next month, Oxjam-in aid of Oxfam -will continue with Emma Bladon Jones, who is attempting to set the record for most gigs played in one day, taking on venues across Beeston -including Bartons.
