About Goths on a Bus
Who are we?
Once upon a time, there were a group of UK Goths with a love of the German “schwarze scene” who wanted to go to M’era Luna Festival on the cheap and not have to deal with silly luggage allowances on low cost airlines. So Adrian “The Guv’nor” Atkins decided to organise a coach trip in 2008 which drove down the country, picking up Goths from different parts of the UK to drive overnight to Hildesheim, Germany and then ferry their drunken asses back to the UK after the festival.
Goths on a Bus has been going from strength to strength since then. Since 2010 we have been running two coaches to M’era Luna: The Northern and The Midlands coach (Southerners can be allowed on either but only if they drink enough and aren’t too “Nesh”).
In 2016, we are running three coaches- and really looking forward to it!
We also now have two regular drivers: Gordon and Tom. Gordon and Tom have had so much fun on previous years at the festival that they now “Goth up” with the rest of us!
Our logo was designed in 2011 by the lovely Clare, who is also an admin on the website, and runs the social media, thanks Clare!
The Website was put together in the summer of 2012. It’s run by Webmistress Ashleigh Jade for the group. If you have any comments, feedback or suggestions of links or info you would like to see on the site, please post a comment below!
