Free ride for Culture in Stoke-on-TrentExciting new partnership with Uber to offer free fares to people visiting cultural events in Stoke-on-Trent.
Since 2013 our programme has been breaking down barriers for audiences to attend and enjoy culture in Stoke-on-Trent. Hundreds and thousands of people have taken part in the huge array of Appetite events over recent years such as The Big Feast Festival, The Fire Garden in Hanley Park and not forgetting the recent outdoor spectacle, The Enchanted Chandelier. Appetite has been working hard to break down barriers to the ways people people think about and access culture in the city by providing world-class events in The Potteries for free or at heavily reduced prices. Apart from cost, one of the main barriers for people getting to and from cultural events is travel. But a new promotion with Uber will help to get families and groups to or from cultural events for absolutely free.
Appetite has developed a brand new partnership with international travel company Uber, to offer local people more opportunities to access cultural activities across the city using a special promotional code which gets you up to £15 worth of Uber travel completely free of charge. You could use the promotion to take a trip to The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery or go to your local theatre. You can even use it if you want a free ride to a local football match or the cinema.
Karl Greenwood, Appetite Project Director said: “At Appetite we aim to get more people to access the arts but we know that the cost and hassle to get to and from events is a problem for many people across the city. This travel offer shows how we are trying to tackle these barriers and do something about it. It’s really exciting to be able to partner with such a well-known global brand such as Uber. We know budgets are tight and this should make travelling to your next cultural event in Stoke-on-Trent much easier and cheaper”.
As Stoke-on-Trent builds momentum for its UK City of Culture 2021 bid later this year, the city needs as many people getting behind and supporting the many different cultural events on offer. This offer through Appetite will encourage more people to come to our events and other wonderful things happening in the city.
The offer is valid for 2017 and provides local people with a free lift to cultural events so they can enjoy a good time out. Appetite and Uber are pleased to offer local people this exclusive offer of a free ride up to the value of £15 so if you're out to enjoy the city’s cultural offer you can get a free ride in style.
