Download PILOT

Big Green Coach is delighted to be providing safe coach travel to the Download PILOT event at Donington Park this June.

The live events world has been decimated by the pandemic. Major suppliers to this industry, such as Big Green Coach, have been pushed close to the brink of financial collapse. Thankfully, with the support of our awesome customers, we have survived what we hope is the worst of times.

Being asked to be involved in this event is a fantastic and positive step forward to returning to our normal day job of safely delivering customers to a field to enjoy amazing music. We are so pleased to be involved.

We are operating socially distanced coach services from the following locations. All these operate on the Friday and depart on the Monday. Return coach travel from:
Birmingham, Birkenhead, Bradford, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London (Victoria), Manchester and Sheffield.

FAQ

Question: As the event itself is not socially distanced, I plan to hug as many people on site as I can. Does the coach have to be socially distanced?

Answer: Social distancing at the event is not required as everybody on site will have taken a lateral flow test before entry and received a negative result and will have taken a PCR test too. However, this rule currently only applies at the gates of the event. Despite our service only transporting Downloaders who have received a negative result, we still must follow the national rules on social distancing on transport to the event. This is due to change on the 21st June but until that time, we have to comply. Rest assured that we will follow the latest rules on social distancing at the time of transport.

Question: Will the coach be half full then?

Answer: We will monitor each booking to see if they are part of the same bubble. If so, then the bubble can sit together but we will ensure that passenger numbers are limited in line with the current rules on social distancing. For example, if a husband and wife book two seats with us for this event, naturally they can sit together.

Question: Everyone had to purchase the event ticket individually, do we need to do the same for the coach?

Answer: No. To ensure that we know who is in your bubble, we allow multiple customers to book together. This makes our management of the numbers onboard as straightforward as possible.
