A dedicated Festival Shuttle Bus will operate from the city centre to the Festival throughout the day, with more buses operating just before the start and just after the end of the Festival. The number of shuttle buses available will be precisely determined by the number of tickets sold in advance. Therefore it is important that you purchase shuttle bus tickets as soon as you know you need to travel in this way. The last bus to Hylands from the city centre is at approx. 8:30pm on the day. Note that last access to the Festival is at 9.30pm.
Tickets are only £6 return and the timetable and collection point/s will be announced shortly. It will be a short walk from the Festival Bus Stop at Hylands Park to the Festival.
