Hop on board for On The Buses event in Borehamwood

Borehamwood Times: Hop on board for On The Buses event Hop on board for On The Buses event

Sitcom fans are preparing to hop on board and enjoy a celebration of the Seventies comedy, On The Buses, which was filmed largely around Borehamwood and Elstree.

Now in its fifth year, the “fun-filled” weekend experience will include bus tours of locations used for the popular comedy series, which ran on ITV between 1969 and 1973.

Fans who turn up to the event this weekend at Fairway Hall, in Brook Close, Borehamwood, will also get the chance to meet stars of the show, including Anna Karen, who played Stan's dowdy sister Olive.

The event, which commences at 9am on Saturday and 10am on Sunday, also includes screenings of episodes of the well-loved television series in the afternoon.

Organiser Craig Walker said of the "suggestive" comedy series: "I think there is still a niche for this style of humour.

"There is nothing of the sort nowadays and people who were not even born when it was aired still enjoy it immensely.

"I was only a year old when it first came out and I travel down from Edinburgh to organise the event every year."

The 43-year-old, who is a self-confessed fan of the comedy, has written a book on the subject, On the Buses: the Complete Story, which was published in 2009. He also published a quiz book on the sitcom last month.

More than 100 fans are expected to join the event this weekend, along with more than 15 celebrities, including cast members, film crews and scriptwriters.

On The Buses used a wide range of locations around Borehamwood including Shenley Road, Leeming Road and Manor Way.
