Balance required: pole-dancing on the move

POLE-dancing is normally reserved for venues slightly more discrete than an open-top, double-decker bus driving round town.

But not in Fenland.

Welcome to the ultimate party bus complete with disco light, sound system and dance pole for getting you from A to B with a bit of fun in between.

Whittlesey’s Decker Bus decided to install the pole in its bus after seeing a growing interest in party transport.

“It’s certainly been getting a lot of attention. It’s just something a bit different and a bit of light relief,” explained owner Anthea Head.

“We have had an open-top party bus for quite some time and last year we were doing a lot of proms and hen nights but the downstairs of the bus was not offering much so we thought we could make it a bit more tempting and put a pole in.

“We have not had many males yet, it has been mainly girly groups and hen nights.

“A lot of our business is school trips or things like that so we just thought it would be a more interesting to do something like this.”

The bus, which might host a ganster-themed party one night and rock up at Ascot the next, is thought to be the first of its kind outside of London.

Guests have the option of having a bit of a dance or even taking part in a professional pole-dancing class.

Ms Head said the bus has been popular as transport to parties and nightclubs, spa treatment days out and as an indulgent taxi to airports before a holiday.

The bus was show-cased at the 58th UK Coach Rally at the East of England Showground in Peterborough a fortnight ago.

Prices start at �300 but mileage and time are also taken into account.
