This is it. The big one. We have a government that is 100% focussed on destroying the economy and prospects of the United Kingdom for a generation to satisfy some narrow political interests. They aren’t listening to the people of this country, and they don’t want to listen. But if enough of us come to London on Saturday October 19th, they will hear us.
We are running a coaches from Somerset, on three routes: Taunton, just outside Yeovil and Wincanton; Glastonbury/Street, Wells, Shepton and Frome; and Minehead, Washford, Williton, Bridgwater and Burnham.
You can book tickets from here. Child and concession tickets are available. We also have a handful of free sponsored seats available; email us to ask. However, the coaches are now all sold out, and none of the coach companies in Somerset have any coaches left. If you click on the button above, you can join the waiting list, and you will receive an email when we release seats from cancellations. See our Alternative Transport page for other ideas.
We will update this page as the details are refined, so please keep checking here for new information.

Coaches 1, 2, 3, and 5 will stop at the Euro Coach Park, 150 Bayswater Rd, Kensington, London W2 4RT, in the north-west corner of Hyde Park, at around 11.30. They will remain parked there all day. Coach 4 will drop off near the start of the march and pick up near the end. Final instructions will be given on the coach.
You will be able to leave things on board the coaches
Coaches 1, 2 and 3 will leave from the Euro Car Park on Bayswater Road at 5.30 pm sharp. Coach 5 will leave at 4:00 pm. Coach 4 will pick up at around 5:30; again, listen for final instructions on the way to London.
The coach drivers have limited driving hours by law, so if you get to the coach park after that time, you will be left behind.
We expect to be back in Taunton after 9 p.m.
Meeting and Marching
We will assemble in the south-east corner of Hyde Park, by Achilles’ Statue, at around 12:15. See map above. It is a pleasant 40 minute walk across Hyde Park, or you can catch the tube at Queensway to Hyde Park Corner, or buses along Bayswater Road to Marble Arch, and then down Park Lane to Hyde Park Corner. There are various pre-march rallies going on around that area, so search around to find us.
We will be carrying Somerset flags (red wyvern on yellow ground) on tall flagpoles, so look out for those.
Don’t forget to write to your MP.
Organisation and Safety
Last March’s march was very well organised, and this one will be even better. There will be more relay screens, so more of us will get to see and hear the speeches. It will be safe and happy; in March, with 1,000,000 of us, the police made no arrests at all! However, things are hotting up politically, and the Leavers are getting desperate, so be alert, careful and polite.
Mobile phone access is likely to be tricky, with so many people there. Try texting rather than phoning. You could try using open wi-fi services, such as BT’s FON, if you have access to them. You might need to download an app before the march.
What if it is Cancelled?
It is unlikely that anything will stop the march going ahead, but if it is cancelled, we will refund the cost of the ticket minus any unavoidable costs. We cannot guarantee the amounts of refund.
Supporting the March
If you want to support the march, but can’t join us in London, please consider making a donation.
As with the previous marches, there will be plenty of people who would love to come to London, but cannot for one reason or another. So, as before, we will carry a banner with the names of those who are with us in spirit. Email us if you would like to add your name to it. On social media, use #March4me to show your support on the day. And please consider a donation to support our efforts.
