The Storytelling Bus

An alternative sightseeing tour of Halifax

Every weekend from 25 May to 4th July 2019 tickets on sale soon.

Take a 30-minute bus journey around Halifax and become part of IOU’s latest immersive experience. The Storytelling Bus takes us on a journey around Halifax, seeing this extraordinary town in a way you’ve never seen it before. Passengers sit on the moving bus wearing headphones, listening to individual stories as they take in the sights of Halifax. The words of people living in the town are brought to life - the personal, every day stories of our lives are given voice and shared meaning.  

Visit here for more information about how you can take part. The Rear View Storytelling Bus is an alternative sightseeing journey unique to Halifax delivered and made by IOU and presented in partnership with Piece Hall & Square Chapel. 

The Rear View bus was conceived, designed and made by IOU in their Halifax workshop and is the only one of its kind in the world. The bus is generously maintained by First Bus, Halifax. 

The Storytelling Bus will run for 8 weekends from 25 May to 14th July 2019.

Buy a ticket at the Square Chapel Box Office here. Sign up for a workshop here. Age guidance: 11+. Please note that if you are 11 years old and under 135cm you will be required to use a booster seat (provided) on the bus. Reservation required.
