The bus rally will be held at Barleylands Farm Park, to the North of Basildon Town Centre.
If you’ve been there before you’ll already know what a fantastic place Barleylands is; if you’ve not been there before, why not?!
They have around 60 craft business’s on site hand making anything from dress’s to glassware to wood & metal items and anything & everything in between. They also have a small farm squarely aimed at the little ones (there is a charge for this), tractor rides and a small railway. The facilities already onsite at Barleylands will compliment the bus rally and offer a great alternative for those members of the family that are maybe not so interested in just the buses.
Turning to the bus rally itself, I have hired Barleyland’s showground and I intend to park all buses facing in a westerly direction to benefit photographers with sales stands facing the buses. However, should we need to switch to wet weather mode as we did with the first rally in 2016, it will be a case of making necessary compromises in order to fit everything in.
Talking of 2016, have you seen our feedback page? You can find it by clicking here.....
As with with previous rallies, there’ll be a FREE bus service linking Barleylands Farm Park with the bus station in the centre of town, and new for 2018, an additional half hourly service linking Barleylands with Wickford town centre.
We also have FREE feeder bus services serving local towns.
Full details of all the FREE bus services can be found by clicking here.
Whilst you are encouraged to arrive at Barleylands Farm Park using the FREE bus services, you are just as welcome to come by car (for the directions check out the how to get there page).
