Re: Our American School Bus in Sheffield, England.

We use the bus to promote our own events and festivals (see http://www.yellowbusevents.co.uk) and also hire it out for promtions such as Simpsons & Disney. These external clients have brought some good revenue, but it did cost a lot to bring the bus over and do the conversion. I have put in hunderds of hours but have loved the project and am really pleased with the bus. We are now getting into the music festival business wth it and it was used as an interview backdrop and lounge at V Festival last year (a music festival for over 100,000 people). See pictures below from Disney work and V Festival where The Magic Numbers are being interviewed.

Just got hold of this picture. It is in central London last Nov. That is Nelsons Column in the background, just a short walk from Buckingham Palace.

Here is a picture of the bus on the Brands Hatch motor racing track in Kent (England). We actually got to do a full lap but didnt exactly set a speed record!

This was just last month in Blackpool on the west coast of England where we were helping with the street entertainment at the Showzam Festival of Magic, Circus & New Variety.
