Imberbus is taking a break this year

Although we are obviously hoping that Coronavirus restrictions will have been relaxed by the summer, it is obvious that the Covid-19 pandemic is going to have a serious effect on all our lives for many, many weeks.

It is clearly impossible to predict what the exact position will be in August and during the next few months, most of those who help us put the event on will have more important things to do, both personally and at work.  In addition, many of the organisations that support us with money, people’s time, vehicles, fuel and supplies are going to find it difficult to survive, let alone be as helpful and generous as they normally are.

It is therefore with great regret that we have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Imberbus event now, so we can give plenty of notice to everyone concerned.

Rest assured, however, that we only view this as a temporary break and we will certainly be pursuing the concept of a car-free day at Imber next year. Once we have been able to agree suitable arrangements with the MoD we will, of course, contact you again to let you know the new date and publish details on our website – http://www.imberbus.org .

The Imberbus Crew

Imber will be a lot quieter on Sunday and the 16th Century St.Giles Church will be open from 11am until 3.30pm if you want a leisurely walk round. Single fares from Warminster to Imber will be £3 each way for adults and £1 for children – please pay the conductor on the bus in cash (there is no need to book but we regret that we cannot accept bus passes or credit cards).

Buses from Delaware Road

If you are returning from the Delaware Road Festival, we will also be running buses from New Zealand Farm Camp back to Warminster at 10am, 11am, 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm.

Afternoon Mystery Tour to unexplored parts of Salisbury Plain

On Sunday afternoon we hope to run a circular mystery tour using vintage Routemaster buses, from Warminster Station to a part of Salisbury Plain that has rarely, if ever, been seen by the general public and certainly not by double decker bus!  This will depart at 3pm and is expected to arrive back into Warminster at approximately 5pm.  You can also join the tour at Imber at 2.25pm and we will drop you off again there 2 hours later.

Tickets for this journey will cost £10 for adults and £1 for accompanied children – please pay the conductor on the bus in cash (there is no need to book but we regret that we cannot accept bus passes or credit cards). This ticket can also be purchased and used to travel on the buses from Warminster to Imber in the morning).

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
