Let Us Be Heard March, London – 19th October

Let Us Be Heard March, London – 19th October

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.

Transport

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.

The  coach leaves at the following times:

Please arrive before those times, so that we can leave on time!

Coaches 3 and 4 are being run in collaboration with European Movement Mendip.
Coach 5 is being run by Benet Allen, who drives coaches for Ridlers.
None of these coaches has a specific connection with any political party.

If those coach places don’t suit you, please see our Alternative Transport page for ideas.

Please bring:

  • Water and food
  • Raincoats
  • Flagpoles and flags (we are bringing spare flags too)
  • Placards, T-shirts etc
  • A map of central London (or satnav)
  • Your mobile phone to keep in touch if we get split up
  • A big smile!

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.

#March4Me

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.

  2. Are there any coaches from Bridgwater or Burnham. I’ve tried to book from Bridgwater, but it always comes up as Taunton (coach 1) when I come to pay. Thanks, Andy

    1. Hi Andy; I just had a go at booking a Bridgwater coach, and I couldn’t see where it said that the ticket was from Taunton; please could you give us a few more clues about which stage of the booking process has a problem?
      We are looking into a Burnham-Weston-Clevedon route. No promises at this stage, but we welcome expressions of interest, which would give us the confidence to arrange another coach.

      1. I live in Weston so I’m definitely interested in the Burnham-Weston-Clevedon route. Just wondering when you will know for sure…

    1. Yes, as far as I know. Three of the coaches are from Berry’s, and their coaches have toilets on board. I can find out about the others for you.

        1. Hi Matt, love to support this. Can I join you and meet you up there! Was going anyway. But would be good to join your group.
          Cheers
          Ken

          1. Hi Ken,
            Good to hear from you! We are meeting at Achilles’ Statue, in the south-east corner of Hyde Park, from around 12:15. Look for the Somerset flags (red dragon/wyvern on yellow field). Come and join us!
            Cheers,
            Matt

    1. Well, that’s between you and the Washford Inn. If you do ask them, please could you let us know what they say, so that we can let other people know?

    Hi is there any chance there will be another bus leaving from Wells for the march? Currently it is showing Sold Out. We would need 2 places. Also is there a map showing exactly where the meeting point at the Edithmead roundabout is and where you can park? And does the Minehead bus have a loo?

    1. Hi Marylin,
      Sorry, there don’t seem to be any more coaches available for hire in Somerset for next Saturday!
      The meeting point is described as “the north side of Edithmead roundabout”. I don’t know that area too well, but I will try to find out where would be good to park.
      I have contacted the coach orgainser to find out about toilets on that coach.

  4. Hi, I’m catching Berrys coach to London – hoping to find you at the assembly point in Hyde Park. Keep one spare flag for me please. see you on Saturday !
