Parliament Partner: CrossCountry

The CrossCountry network is the most extensive passenger rail franchise in Britain. Stretching from Aberdeen to Penzance, and from Stansted to Cardiff, it calls at over 100 stations. Based in Birmingham, CrossCountry connects seven of Britain’s 10 largest cities and delivers 295 services every weekday, equating to some 32 million passenger journeys a year.

“We’re really excited to be a part of such a fantastic initiative, which is going to bring alive the cultural landscape of this wonderful city.”

“We strive to deliver socio-economic benefits to the towns, cities and wider communities we serve which is why this project is so important as it will encourage people from all walks of life across Great Britain to visit Birmingham and explore all that is brilliant about the UK’s second city.”

“The Big Hoot will inspire, entertain and engage people from all over this summer and with our HQ based in Birmingham and our routes all connecting through Birmingham we just had to be a part of it. We can’t wait to see the sculptures light up the city!”
