#Stop Brexit – Bristol – South West & Gibraltar Regional Rally – 14th October


The #StopBrexit season of rallies continues, with our local Regional Rally in Bristol, one of twelve being held across the UK, in each of the EU regions. Click here for more information about the event, or see end of this page.

Bring your flags, banners, placards, and show that the South West is a stronghold for those that believe Brexit can and must be stopped.

We have organised a 17 mini bus or buses (depending on demand) from Newton Abbot and Exeter (with possible further stops along M5) to Bristol – see below for details and to book your seats.


We have organised a 17 minibus  to Bristol, departing from Newton Abbot at 10:30 and Exeter at 11:00 in Saturday 14 October. Return will be after the rally, so we will leave Bristol at approximately 17:30. Tickets for the minibus are £12.50.

Book your seats now, there are only 16 of them in total (or 32 if there is enough support).

Once you have booked them please also complete this form. Please complete the form for each person attending if you have booked multiple seats, and let us know if you are joining us in Newton Abbot or Exeter. Please also complete this form if you are attending and travelling by other means.


The minibus will leave from The Triangle Car Park at 11:00 Please ensure you are there in good time as we will not be able to wait. The car park is The Triangle Car Park, Russell St, Exeter EX1 2BL and costs £6 for the whole day.

There is an alternative pick up point in Newton Abbot. The minibus will leave Wolborough Way Car Park, Wolborough Street, TQ12 1JQ at 10:30. Parking costs £4.50 for the day.

The tickets will be non-refundable (unless the coach is cancelled by us). Tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis. We cannot be held responsible for the event itself, and this ticket is for transport to Bristol and back only. The payment will be processed by PayPal, and due to monthly limits imposed on the Devon for Europe PayPal account (we are trying to get these lifted for the future), it will be handled by a business PayPal account in the name of Onewood.

Event Details and Speakers

The South West & Gibraltar Rally is here! Saturday, October 14th, 2-5pm, College Green, Bristol.

Bristol for Europe is proud to present the first Rally of its kind, celebrating our European Parliament Constituency and the benefits our region enjoys as part of the European Union.

Let’s not forget, exports to the EU from the South West are huge: Exeter 70%, Plymouth 68% and Bristol 66%. Our entire region benefits phenomenally from inward investment from the EU. Infrastructure grants are particularly apparent in areas of Cornwall; investment in science and research enable our universities to be among the best in the world and the wonderful contribution EU citizens make to our health services from end to end
