We now look towards our next event, the Original King Alfred Buses Running Day on Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May 2021. This is intended to feature all available vehicles in the Friends of King Alfred Buses collection although a large number of visiting vehicles and a transport bazaar are unlikely to be possible. More details will be announced nearer the time.
All arrangements must, of course, be subject to local and national Government policy regarding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and may be subject to short notice alteration or cancellation.
For 1st January 2021 we had hoped to operate a Micro Running Day. However, Government coronavirus 'Tier 4' restrictions left no responsible option but to cancel the event. It was the first New Year's Day for many years without a King Alfred event in Winchester. We feel sure our many loyal supporters share our disappointment and will look forward to happier times when our heritage buses can again be enjoyed on their traditional routes.
Pictures of our previous event for Heritage Open Days on 19th September 2020 can be seen by clicking on King Alfred and then going to the Picture Gallery.
