Bus parade to celebrate Wolves promotion

Wolves and City of Wolverhampton Council have announced details of a promotion party to celebrate the club's return to the Premier League.

On Bank Holiday Monday (7 May), players and staff will have the chance to parade The Sky Bet Championship trophy in front of supporters during an open top bus tour through the city centre.

There will also be a family-friendly ‘party in the park’ at West Park.

Two open top buses carrying the players and staff will set off from outside Wolverhampton Art Gallery on Lichfield Street at noon.

Head coach, Nuno, will then lead his team into West Park where 30,000 Wolves fans will greet their heroes at a free, family-friendly, ticketed party.

Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple said:

Supporters will be able to line the route as the buses travel down Lichfield Street, through Queen Square, down Darlington Street, turning into Waterloo Road, across the Ring Road, turning into Newhampton Road East, Lansdowne Road and along Park Road East.

Tickets for the party in the park event will be free, but limited to four per person.

Details of how to apply for tickets will be released via the council and football club’s websites and social media channels on Monday.
