Hard-standing car parking

There is all-weather parking at the Macmillan Car Park directly opposite the Festival site (off Llanigon Road) for 900 cars (reduced to 400 cars in wet weather). Friends of the Festival can pre-book parking spaces. The cost is £6 per day. The Macmillan Festival Car Park has raised £199,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

There is all-weather parking for a further 2,000 cars at Clyro Court (Baskerville Hall Hotel), HR3 5LE. A direct free shuttle bus service will operate between Clyro Court and the Festival site. The shuttle bus stop is by the main gate by the road. Please allow up to 30 minutes for journey time. All festival-goers can pre-book parking spaces. Parking costs £6 per day, which includes shuttle bus tickets. The last shuttle buses leave the Festival site for Clyro Court after the last event each day.

Disabled parking

Disabled parking is available on the Festival site. Disabled parking spaces can be pre-booked online or by phone, at the time of booking tickets.

Park with care

Please park with consideration for local residents. We ask you not to park on the highway or grass verges.

In 2014, car parking revenue was shared between:

Macmillan Cancer Research (£199,000 raised in previous years)
