Buses ran to perfect time during the show of Conductor.

The eight movements were performed by buses and volunteers stood inside the Bus Station.

A soundscape created by Preston Field Audio echoed around the grade-II listed building.

Written and choreographed by Keith Harrison the performance is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations for the building.

The buses moved in and out of their numbered bay during the performance on the morning of Sunday (14 July).

Rebecca, thenewbruntte, on Twitter described it as ‘actually balletic’ and ‘strangely moving’.

Councillor Peter Kelly, cabinet member for leisure and culture, was there to capture the moment and share his support.
