Follow the yellow signs from outside of town, they take you to our car parks. Parking costs just £5 per car all day. Please do NOT park on the streets surrounding the festival, it upsets local residents and police and can cause traffic congestion, especially for emergency vehicles. And you may get a parking ticket!
The nearest railway station is Ashchurch for Tewkesbury. Buses are available to take you from the railway station to Tewkesbury town centre.
Regular buses from Cheltenham and the town centre pass within 2 minutes walk of the festival site.
With such a large event taking place in a small town, hotels and other accommodation fill rapidly, so early booking is recommended.
We run our own campsite, 5 minutes away from the main festival site, on the main Cheltenham-Tewkesbury bus route. It opens from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. A relaxed campsite with good loos and hot showers included.
