Local bus routes are operated by Suffolk On Board and Ipswich buses.

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.

Parking is not included in the ticket price this year. Campers must park off-site, but will be able to drop their belongings onsite on arrival. Helpers from the Food Museum will shuttle you up to the camping field so you can set up.
