Details from LoveMiddlesbrough :-
Members of the public are also invited to join the party at the foot of the bridge on Monday – the Transporter’s 100th birthday – when, from 1.30pm, there will be special performances, official speeches and even a Transporter Bridge cake!
The bridge’s Visitor Centre will also host a heritage exhibition, featuring Transporter artefacts, memories, photographs and video clips collated by the centenary reminiscence project.
And for those crossing the Transporter on the 100th birthday itself, there will be a special memento of the occasion.
