Visitors will be able to get on board the uniquely decorated bus on Sunday 21st May to take their own pictures including on the open top deck of the bus. Relive the moment the bus drove around the city following CCFC’s historic FA Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur on 16th May 1997 at Wembley. Coventry was filled with crowds of people dressed in the Sky Blues colours - were you there that day?

There is a minimum donation of £1 per visitor to get on board the bus, with the proceeds going towards the upkeep of the historical bus. A maximum of 12 people can board the bus at a time.
