General Election Battle Buses

With the General Election taking place this year on the 7th May, the main political parties will be hitting the campaign trail. This event is always a very exciting and highly anticipated time across the UK, with many people intending to review the debates and propositions. From citizens of small towns, to journalists and article writers working for large newspapers and magazines, everybody will be interested to see the action.

In the UK, the term ‘battle bus’ is given to a luxury coach shared by reporters, political commentators and politicians. These vehicles are chosen to incorporate a more communal vibe during the campaigns when travelling around the country. This gives journalists the opportunity to gather extensive coverage of the events and allows them to deliver accurate feedback and reports based on first hand interpretation. This serves as a more practical option for reporters, securing that they are on the scene at all times rather than wasting time, mileage and money trying to meet the campaign at specific locations each day. On the other hand, this also works in the politician’s favour. Considering that the whole idea of the campaign is to gather as much interest as possible, hiring a battle bus naturally grants them more coverage and publicity throughout the tour.

Externally wrapping and branding the vehicle also plays a large part of the promotion during a campaign. The presentation of the vehicle creates strong impressions when arriving at target locations, so it is very important to make sure that all the vehicles stand out correctly with professional vinyl wrapping. This technique has been used for many years and is a great way of raising the awareness about the political parties when campaigning.

Day Buses for Bands, Crew & Artists in the Theatre & Music Industry

In the entertainment and music industry large coaches, such as sleeper buses and luxury minibuses have always been sought after for bands, band managers, crews and other artists. When you’re on the road, whether that’s for a day or a 3 month tour, a high quality, comfortable and reliable bus plays a large part in making things run smoothly, as well as keeping the passengers relaxed.

Many clients look for features such as TV’s, radios, sofas, fridges, tea/coffee makers and other luxuries that will make the artists feel right at home after a long day of performing. These things become essential for artists when you consider that they are going to be living in this space for the duration of a tour.

For other members of production, our luxury coaches and luxury minibuses are perfect for transferring crews to the next location as required. Each vehicle has large leather reclining seats, full air conditioning, and TV entertainment systems as standard. All vehicles also have 240V power sockets with some having WIFI and tea & coffee making facilities.

As well as operating sleeper buses we also operate day buses for bands, crews, and artists for the theatre & music industry.
