Take the bus to Derby’s Big Bake

Derby food and drink fans are being urged to avoid the double discomfort of congestion and indigestion by taking the bus to the mouth-watering Big Bake in Markeaton Park this weekend (June 17-18).

Visitors to the food fair, which features Great British Bake Off contestants Nancy Birtwhistle, John Whaite and Andrew Smyth along with cake artist Molly Robbins, can beat traffic queues and parking problems by leaving the car at home and travelling in style in our comfortable and modern buses, which are fitted with complimentary Wi Fi and USB ports.

Arriva will be running a special shuttle service to The Big Bake - Great Food and Drink Festival from Derby bus station on Saturday and Sunday. The service will run from the station at 9.10am and then run every 30 minutes until the last bus leaves Markeaton Park at 5.25pm.

The event will also be served by our regular Number 9 Derby Albert Street to Mackworth Radbourne Lane service, travelling via Markeaton Park and Mackworth Estate, running every 20 minutes through the day on Saturday and every 30 minutes on Sunday.
