Winchester Round Table Bonfire and Fireworks

3 weeks ago Tue 29th Oct 2019

Crowds wait for the display to start


For the last 61 years, Winchester has come alive each November to enjoy a spectacular Bonfire and Fireworks Display, brought to you by the Winchester Round Table.

This year, taking place on Saturday 9th November, Bluestar are here to get you to the heart of Winchester - stress-free and ready to enjoy a great evening out!

We'll have extra buses in service on our Bluestar 1 route heading to Winchester in the lead up to the event, and back to Chandler's Ford and Southampton afterwards, so why not leave the car at home, jump on board and let us do the driving.

Please note, road closures in Winchester are in place from 6pm until around 9pm, meaning buses entering and leaving the city during these times will be unable to serve St Cross / Southgate Street, Jewry Street and North Walls, and will instead divert via Bar End and the M3 motorway between the Bushfield Roundabout and the city centre.

This means the last bus to run normal route into Winchester via St Cross will be the 1640 departure from Southampton, arriving in Winchester at 1740. The 1745 departure from Winchester will then be the last to run normal route via St Cross out of the city. All other departures will be from the King Alfred Statue rather than the bus station. The first bus to be able to run normal route out of Winchester after the fireworks will be at 2105 - which will have three extra buses on standby to cope with the demand. The 2150 and 2250 will also have extra buses on standby in case of capacity issues.

We'll also have supervisors at the bus station and King Alfred Statue bus stops to help direct customers.

Please see below for a timetable of our Bluestar 1 service. Times in bold indicate that more than one bus will run together between these points, doubling the capacity.
