How To Get Here
Did you know that 80% of the carbon emissions generated by festivals are due to travel? We want to make Primadonna as green as we can, so we’re partnering with Lift Share so you can offer and accept lifts with other ticketholders (or locals), saving on the number of cars making the journey.
To see if this option will work for you, join the Festival Liftshare community – part of the Liftshare network (not just liftshare.com). Scroll down to the bottom and join the main Festival Liftshare community, where you can offer or search for a lift to Primadonna.
Liftshare is free-to-use, you can arrange to share costs, and you can post your journey as either a passenger, driver or both.
Have a look and see if it will work for you.
PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A TRAIN STRIKE SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY 29 JULY.
The nearest train station is Stowmarket, which is a ten minute walk from the festival. We run a shuttle bus from Stowmarket train station to the festival venue – for free! – between midday and 5pm on Friday, and 10am and 5pm on Sunday. On Saturday, because of the train strike, the shuttle has also been cancelled.
For timetables and tickets see Greater Anglia: routes go from London (Liverpool Street) via Peterborough, Norwich, Cambridge and Ipswich.
For travel from further afield check out Trainline.
There is a bike rack at the museum which will be available to festival guests. Bikes will be parked at the owners’ risk, but will be within the festival site’s perimeter.
Walking onto site is the easiest way to get straight into the action. In the event you need to walk onto or offsite at night then please wear reflective clothing or something bright and highly visible.
Ticket-holders have exclusive use of the carpark on Iliffe Way, right next to the venue (Iliffe Way Car Park, Stowmarket, IP14 1PN – location 747203). Look out for signage when you arrive on Iliffe Way. Helpers from the Food Museum will shuttle you up to the camping field so you can set up.
This carpark runs a cashless payment system – visit MiPermit. There is a special offer set up for Primadonna ticket-holders. Look out for details on arrival.
A small car park is located in the grounds of the museum for visitors with access needs only. This car park can be accessed via the museum entrance.
Anyone with a disabled badge can get a free parking ticket on site but these MUST be pre-booked, and a disabled badge must be displayed at all times. These will not be available on the day.
Our official taxi partner is Avenue Taxis.
You must pre-book by telephone and arrange for a driver to collect you. It is unlawful for a private hire vehicle to take you unless you have booked them in advance.
Private hire vehicles also are identified from an external plate to the rear and an internal plate on the windscreen. The driver will also have a badge on his/her person.
Please ensure you ask the fare to be charged when you make the booking, if you are happy to accept that charge you have entered into a contract and it cannot be altered when you are collected.
If you are not using our partner taxi company, it is advisable to get quotes from different companies to ensure you are fairly charged.
We provide a free accessible shuttle bus to take you from Stowmarket train station to the festival venue, and back again.
