For occasional use iMovie is perfectly adequate (although its workflow is a bit eccentric). But it is free.

If you're not in a hurry, you could hang on until Apple gets its own silicon but there's no way of knowing how that will affect the price.
Looking around at the options for a new iMac, in the near future, to replace a 2011 one, I have had a brief look at what's likely to be happening with Apple's possible new release/design (in November ?); but also re: the price, wondering if there could be a Brexit impact on this, from 1st January, either due to a fall in the £ or something else - would that be plausible, or an irrelevance?

I would be glad of views from anyone on the most useful non-specialist source of advice on what to expect when, from Apple.

I would guess that any brexit effect will hit all tech, not just Apple.

macrumors.com and appleworld.today (formerly TUAW) are probably the best to keep an eye on.

The problem is that if there is a real chance of a brexit price rise then it could happen soon after the release of a new iMac this autumn. Many unknowns and I should make a decision soon.

If there is a Brexit deal then it is probably the pound will get stronger and prices go down.

I very much doubt that there will be a new iMac this autumn. They were updated only a couple of months ago. But I think your general point about price rises is a given.

I'd say that you are being hopelessly optimistic on two fronts.

Reading MacRumours a few days ago, I was thinking of this one:

Upcoming Apple Products Guide: Everything We Expect to See in 2020 and Beyond - MacRumors
October 23, 2020
. . .
Refreshed iMac - Apple refreshed the 27-inch iMac in August, but there are still rumors of a 23 to 24-inch iMac with "iPad Pro design language" and thinner bezels similar to the bezels on the Pro Display XDR, which could come in late 2020 or early 2021. This iMac is also expected to have an Apple Silicon chip and an Apple-designed GPU.
there seem to be rumours around that the standard iMac design of the past 10 years will be replaced, but maybe there are always rumour like this ... I only look into it when I need to consider it.

I don't want one as large as the 27"

I have been using mac for years now and i could say that i have never had any problems until now. I think it depends on what you do... If you would need certain features, then, maybe you could wait and check.

I'd be willing to bet that the smaller iMacs will be silently refreshed (is no fanfare, and with Intel chips) at around the same time the first Apple Silicon Macs (most likely a MacBook of some sort) are let loose.

It's possible Apple will want to do a big surprise reveal, but the company is a lot more risk averse than most people suppose.
