Frequently asked Questions…


These links will open in a new window or tab.

How do we get to Evesham?

Click here to download the Rail timetable for London, Oxford, Evesham, Worcester, Hereford (2019).  We hear there is another station, Worcester Parkway, opening later in 2019, which may give improved connections.

The Evesham Railway Station at WR11 4EQ is 1.2 miles from the festival venue at WR11 1DQ — about 28 minutes' walk.

Is there camping at or near the festival?

The new venue has ample space for camping and for 'tents on wheels' — caravans, motor homes, camper vans.  There are showers, toilets and disposal facilities, and the site is sometimes used by The Camping and Caravan Club.  Indoor camping will be available for staff and stewards.
