Greater Anglia will run extra late evening trains so music fans attending the Arctic Monkeys gig at Carrow Road in Norwich can travel to the event by rail.
Arctic Monkeys are playing at the venue on Wednesday 7 June.
After the concert, the following services are scheduled to run in addition to the normal timetable:
- 23.20 Norwich to Lowestoft. Calling Brundall, Cantley, Reedham, Haddiscoe, Somerleyton, Oulton Broad North & Lowestoft
- 23.22 Norwich to Ely. Calling Wymondham, Attleborough, Thetford, Brandon & Ely
- 23.27 Norwich to Sheringham. Calling Salhouse, Hoveton & Wroxham, Worstead, North Walsham, Gunton, Roughton Road, Cromer, West Runton & Sheringham
- 23.35 Norwich to Ipswich. Calling Diss, Stowmarket & Ipswich
- 23.40 Norwich to Great Yarmouth. Calling Brundall, Brundall Gardens, Lingwood, Acle & Great Yarmouth
The station and trains are expected to be busy, so it may take slightly longer than usual for passengers to board their trains and customers are advised to get back to the station in good time, as these extra trains will be the last ones of the evening on each route.
There will be extra members of staff at Norwich station, helping people with their journeys.
James Reeve, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said:
“We always want to support large local events where possible and make it as easy for people to travel by train.
“To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel.
“Our new trains are longer and have more seats. However, we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on late evening services after the concert.”
