Find the TfGM Hidden Golden Baubles & Get FREE Travel Every Weekend in December

Just when we thought Manchester had hit its festive peak with the return of the Christmas Markets and our first ever Ice Village, Transport for Greater Manchester is launching a new hunt for people to locate exclusive ‘Golden’ Noel baubles across the region.

The exclusive #TfGMNoel baubles are based on Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) festive character and Greater Manchester’s favourite Mancunian Elf, Noel, who’s back for another year of Christmas fun!

To discover Noels location, you must first answer a riddle on TfGM’s new interactive map,, which will  reveal a clue for you to locate Noel.

Once figured out correctly, there is a limited amount of time to get to the venue – routes can be planned via the interactive map. You’ve got to act quick, as there is only limited number of Golden Noels at each venue. Once Golden Noel’s have run out, there will be a number of Pudding Noel baubles up for grabs, but once they’re gone, they’re gone!

Lasting up until Christmas Eve, Noel will move to a new location every 6 days. But that’s not all, upload images of the #TfGM bauble on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and be in the chance of winning additional prizes worth up to £200, (T&C Apply).

Those lucky enough to find the Golden Noel Baubles, will win free travel every weekend up to the 23rd December for the whole family on Metrolink services!

(A family ticket is for group travel up to three children, aged up to 16, accompanied by one or two adults, traveling together on any tramp from 6pm Friday evening until last tram Sunday night).

The golden ticket competition officially launches at midday on Monday 19th November, but a lucky few Metrolink travellers may get their hands on them this Friday 16th November. Follow TfGM on social media for reminders and winner announcements.
