By Car

Shackerstone is midway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Hinckley in Leicestershire and is signposted from both the A444 and A447 trunk roads, both with Yellow AA Steam and Canal signs and Battlefield Line Railway signs (brown tourist signs). From B585, the Market Bosworth road, follow the signs to the village of Congerstone.

The Festival Site is midway between the villages of Congerstone and Shackerstone, off Barton Lane, look out for the Yellow AA signs. Once near the entrance of the site you will be directed by stewards to the car park.

If you are using Sat Nav the nearest Postcode is CV13 6LZ - The Green, Congerstone, but bear in mind that we are in a field, not a house!

The free public car parks are about a 3 minute walk from the actual Festival site.

Disabled parking is approximately 50-100 yards from the main Festival Field. Most parts of the site are accessible via a mobility scooter.

By Public Transport

The nearest railway stations are at Hinckley, Polesworth, Leicester and Nuneaton.

We strongly suggest you check with the operators times and days these services operate, just to be sure!
